Thank you for your rating. We work hard to provide clean, tidy, comfortable and quiet rooms to our guests. We have parking for trailers, trucks, boats and much more. We are close to ploughmans restaurant, fish box and dairy shop. Look forward to your next stay.

This Motel doesnt have Sky Tv, They have never had it and it doesnt say so on their site. Just letting others know. You can watch Sky in the TV room. The Resturant across the road offers a 10% discount if you are staying at the Rainbow, which we took advantage of. The food is amazing.

Thank you for your feedback and rating. Regarding the entertainment, we offer unlimited wifi for unlimited devices. We will soon look at chrome cast or other alternatives so guests can watch their own sky, Netflix in their rooms. We’re happy that you got at least 10% off from ploughmans restaurant for staying with us. Look forward to your next stay.

Edwin was amazing! so friendly and helpful! The room was big and at first i thought it was weird to have a tub in the living space instead of a bedroom but then the TV changed my mind haha. the only suggestion i would have is to change the shower curtains into a lighter shade as the dark green made it very dark in there. highly recommended place to stay and i will be telling all my friends!
