Comfy bed in a quiet shady back room (#02) away from the road, overlooking a small private garden. Well equipped kitchen, nice bathroom with spa bath. Amazing value. I'll be back.

Hi Suzy, Thanks for your feedback! I feel sorry about what you have experienced during your stay with us. There were some customers smoking in the garden which is the smoke area of the motel from time to time. I guess that's the reason you smelt the strong cigarette smell. We would also try to repaint the wall and fix up the holes as soon as we can. Please accept my apologies again and we really hope to see you next time! Kind regards, Sally
