"Quiet, peaceful, friendly staff."
"Ask for one furthest from the road. There is a bit or traffic noise in the morning"
"Don't count on getting what you have booked."
"As far back from the road as possible."
"If you choose to stay here request a room at the back of Riccarton Motor Lodge so the noise from the busy main road is not so intrusive."
