We had a lovely stay at Eight Spence, beautifully refurbished and spotlessly clean. Plenty of room and a lovely comfortable bed. The hosts were lovely as well and so much better to deal with them directly. Would definitely recommend as it was very reasonably priced.

I had a great stay at Eight Spence. The room was modern, very clean and the bed was so comfy. Such a warm and friendly host. Thanks for staying up and making me feel safe to check in late night as a solo traveller. The room had microwave, kettle, plates and cutlery which made it easier to have a meal in after a long day of touring. A short walk to the theatre, restaurants. Very quiet surroundings. I wish I had more days to stay. Thanks for the wonderful stay!

Run by a young couple, this motel is modern and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed two nights here. Our host was extremely helpful on check in, which in this time, is contactless. He showed us various spots around town and recommended places for breakfast and dinner. The room as a good size as was the bathroom. It was well appointed and provided tea, coffee and biscuits. The bed was very, very comfortable. To our surprise we had been upgraded to a king room which was very generous. Plenty of hot water, table and chairs plus another chair to relax in. The property has ample parking and, due to COVID, guests can choose to have housekeeping or not. If you choose not you can still have fresh towels on request. It is an easy walk to the Main Street where there are plenty of cafes to choose from. All in all, a most enjoyable stay. Thank you.

Eight Spence had very helpful staff, was centrally located so we could walk everywhere and the room was immaculately clean. Highly recommend. Parking was on site, WiFi was fine for our use and it was good value for money.
