8/10 Very good

Check in fine, if you don't mind looking at your host's big belly through a hole, the size of a football, in his shirt! Host himself appears to be a bit shy and you have to do most of the talking, although the dog is very friendly. Whilst clean and comfortable the motel needs a lot of long overdue maintenance and the noise from the taps in particular are something else. Restaurant is not open at the moment, however breakfast and dinner are available in the rooms. This is the second time we have stayed here and the economical cost and the outstanding food (delivered on time) make the stay OK.
