      5/5 Excellent

      Loved the position right by the river and close to town and the friendly cat

      Stayed 2 nights in Jul. 2019

      Booking misunderstanding

      We had difficulty with checking-in as Hotels.com booking included two rooms which appeared as being under separate names. The proprietor seemed to blame us for this and claimed poor communication on our part. The fact was that although there were two rooms booked there was only one available. We ended up with four adults in one unit which wasn't ideal but we did get a discount. No major dramas, it seemed to me like the Motel management did not understand the Hotels.com system.

      Stayed 2 nights in Apr. 2019

      5/5 Excellent
