Stayed her for one night -an unexpected stay in Cambridge. All we needed -clean, good beds, telly with heaps of options, Handy to town. Just wish some of these motels would get on to the gardens. To me that first appearance is so important,

Stayed here for one night. Small clean slightly dated room. It's got all you need for an overnight stay. Easy walk into town . Only issue it need thicker curtains as it is very light in the room. I will stay again.

This is the second time I've stayed here and co-incidentally stayed in the same room as last time. The motel is clean and warm, if a little dated. The front office service was fine, my reservation was all ready to go. Perfect for my needs, happy to stay again.

I agree with previous reviewers that this not especially modern but its been updated and all in good order. The owners were friendly and helpful. The motel is close to town. Plenty of off road parking.

Tidy wee motel. The owner is so accommodating, makes us feel at home. Nice room. Spa pool is a hit with my daughter. For its age, its holding up well. Plenty of parks. Close to town. Would totally recommend!

I have stayed here twice now and the owners really go out of their way to be helpful. The rooms are ok in size and I love the little kitchens that some of them have. So great to have a real oven to use! The oven would be even better if there were some oven trays inside them to stop...
