Lovely helpful and friendly lady to take phone reservation and upon checkin. We had the 3 bedroom unit which is fully equipped with a kitchen and living area for 6 people. Dated furnishings. Hard beds, but some people do like that. 2 pillows for each guest is always great. I suspect the cleaning staff are short, as there were slivers...

As a last minute idea I booked my family of five into the New England Motor Inn. They were able to accommodate us in a very cost effective three bedroom apartment. The office was closed when we arrived but the room keys were conveniently located in a lock box. We found the apartment tidy and catered for our overnight stay....

The staff were friendly and accommodating from the moment we arrived at this well situated motel. It is directly across the road from the very enjoyable Wicklow Hotel and a very walk from the centre of town and also some lovely parklands. The rooms have aged a bit since we stayed here a number of years ago but we were...

We had an overnight stay in a 2 bedroom apartment, 4 adults - $225. Very over priced for the hard beds, terribly lumpy pillows, old grubby lounge & run down bathroom. Convenient location but in desperate need of a refurbish. The lady who greeted us in reception was not friendly & didn't seem to want to be there? We will...

Thank you for your feedback. As we are in the process of upgrading our rooms it is very important that we receive feedback which is why we always ask our guests on departure if they enjoyed there stay, which is why it was surprising to read your comments. It is unfortunate that nothing was said about your concerns while you...

We had the unfortunate displeasure of staying at this motel. After being greeted with the words, "Check out is at 10am" our experience didn't improve. Why you may ask? 1. The bathroom was full of mould and rust 2. My wife has blonde hair and I am rather bald so to see black hairs around the bath was interesting. 3....

We found the room very clean and neat. The motel is in a fabulous position in town. Within close walking distance to many restaurants and pubs. Check in and check out was very easy and the room was very comfortable.

The door to the room was opened by putting a shoulder to it! The fridge freezer was full of ice and unusable! 2 gallons of bleach in the bathroom would not have cleaned the mould!

Room was very clean and comfortable. Large bath room and adequate living space. Well equipped kitchen and fairly modern amenities. There was a bug infestation outside that didn't affect us inside the room. On a long road trip, this was one of the best family overnight accommodation we had.

Not really first class accommodation but at the same time not a first class price. Nice and handy to everything though, pubs, shops etc. It is run down and in need of a makeover. Office closed "early" because they weren't busy but nowhere to put your key when you wanted to leave "early".
