A Home Away from Home

Have loved my stay here with my family. The owners are absolutely lovely and always make time to have a chat. I highly recommend staying here they make you feel very at home. A home away from home is exactly what this motel is!!!

Too Short A Stay

Too short a stay, really comfortable and looking to returning another time. The bed was extremely comfortable. The unit was very clean, well furnished, had an excellent TV, powerful shower, great coffee and good privacy. It was really nice to return to at the end of the day.

10/10 - Congratulations to the Owners

No need to look any further as this motel is hard to beat and I will definitely stay again. The room was large and very clean Includes cooking facilities, spa bath and Sky TV with most channels, sunny pool area. Pets are also welcome The owners are very welcoming and are keen to make your stay a happy one. This shows in the booklet in your room. Instead of a list of “don’t do’s” like other motels it covers all the things you need to know about the motel and area. Congratulations to the Owners

Large Room, Comfortable & Very Clean

The room was large, comfortable and very clean. Easy on site parking that you don't have to pay anything to use. The kitchenette had everything we needed for our stay. The water tasted good, did not have a chlorine taste or smell to it and made a nice cup of coffee. The TV had sky channels included, including Movies and Kids channels. The bathroom was clean and quite a good size. The Motel has a pool that can be used by any of the guests.

Great Place For A Family Stay

We had booked on trivago not knowing what to expect. We arrived early but were treated as if we not an inconvenience at all. The room was upgraded and we had a lovely 2 room unit with all the facilities I would expect from a motel. Our 8 year old enjoyed the pool. Great place for a family stay. Thank you!

Wonderful Service & Great Location

8 of us stayed in 2 x 2 bedroom units at The Phoenix Motor Inn. These would be some of the nicer motel units I have stayed in Each unit has 2 bathrooms , one an en-suite. They are extremely modern and clean. Wonderful service and great location.

Can't Recommend This Place Highly Enough

I can not recommend this place highly enough.The place is just wonderful and very well set up (right down to a can of fly spray)The owners were very friendly and helpful and would be some of the nicest people I have come across over many years of staying in motels.Decor, cleanliness, layout all get 10/10They are also dog friendly a big bonus. Our last night there we stayed in a unit that had people with four dogs staying in it. You would never know. Not a dog hair in sight. We had our German Shepherd pup with us and even she didn’t detect the previous presence of dogs in the unit.
