Picked key up at bottle shop, no problem to check in early. Didn't really see staff other than on this occasion as left early and put key in box. Good location with easy access to PI making it good value for money. WiFi available in the restaurant. Room was spacious, clean but basic. Bathroom was very cold. Beds and pillows... More

The service in this motel is outstanding. After hours you pick up the key at the bottle shop and what fabulous service. Polite, courteous and very very obliging. What a refreshing change to most places. The rooms here are huge and you would go a long way to find such a clean establishment. We booked for 2 nights but the... More

Large clean room, very helpful staff, both at checkin ( which by the way is in the bottle shop, something different ) the hotel staff and the restaurant staff were all very knowledgeable, helpful and cheerful. The meals at the restaurant were great and large. We really enjoyed our stay.

The potential for this Hotel/Motel is there but it needs more work. Our reception was poorly handled but our treatment at the associated restaurant was good. Considering the tariff I would have expected a better quality accommodation but it's location on the main street was good.

This was quite the most unusual motel we've stayed in - but not in a bad way! We were surprised to check in at the bottle shop, but the chap behind the counter was terrifically friendly and helpful, so no problem with that at all.
