We were very happy with our stay at the Colonial Motel. Family apartment was clean, spacious and newly renovated. Excellent location. Close to town and good off street parking. We would stay again. Great value.

We stayed here 2 nights. It is an older motel but is clean, warm and beds were very comfortable. Bonus having a separate bedroom, 2 televisions, free use of washing machine & an oven! Great value for money.

We got the two bed motel into. It was dated but lovely and clean and allot bigger then expected. The beds were very comfortable, staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms well appointed. The icing on the cake was Connie the beautiful cat who spent the evening with us. I would stay here again.

We found the two bedroom apartment to be surprisingly roomy accommodation, clean, warm and comfortable. There's a full size cooker, big dining table and loads of room for a family to stay. Thanks for a really pleasant stay!

This motel has made little progress since I stayed here eight years ago. The paint is still chipped round the doorstep, paint is flaking from the ceilings, wind whistles through the shut door. Two of the four dining chairs were downright dangerous, being very wobbly. The other two weren't much better. Shower only barely adequate with water pressure. The tissue box had only one tissue! The drawers and a cupboard did not have knobs. Cutlery very large in size. No heatpump but existing heater was effective. I don't know why so many places don't install external thermostats, which would provide an even temperature and be cheaper as well! The staff were friendly and helpful. I like the Colonial but for a for little cost, the units could be much much better.
