“Basic but handy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

We stayed in Unit 3 of the 4 "motels" beside the principal B&B location: an old villa. The "motels" were clearly adapted from - as we confirmed later - old peoples' residences. The one we were in was very basic - but clean. The former lounge housed a double bed and the original bedroom, two single beds. Storage space - for clothes or other things - was very limited. So the 'downside' was very simple living - basically out of suitcases, with a small TV to while away the time. Not a holiday option, but quite suitable for someone busy doing other things in Cambridge - which we were.
Cooking facilities were very good, however - offsetting some of the "downside" - and the quiet location, well away from the State Highway was also a bonus.
