    I expected cereal and toast at the most for breakfast. Pancakes and waffles with maple syrup was amazing and they cooked quickly so there wasn't much of a wait as there weren't all that many people there at once. It might be different at the height of the season. The added extras of hot chocolate and home baking on arrival was an awesome bonus. Free soup at night was appreciated too.

    My double room was missing towels and information leaflet including the wifi password when I arrived but that was quickly remedied so wasn't a big issue. Be aware that there are no electric blankets but the heater was sufficient.

    Such good value for money and so many thoughtful extras. Free hot chocolate on arrival and soup on the evening and a really awesome breakfast included. Nice, big room with kitchenette and very comfortable.

    The toilet would benefit from a door to the rest of the bathroom and the lighting in the shower could be improved.

    The motel location is good.

    The kitchen pots has to be more tidy and clean.
