We stayed for four nights at the Fyffe in a spa room. Clean & tidy in a good location and the manager was friendly and accommodating. The rooms at the rear of the property are a bit quieter. We would stay again.

Not far from the airport and close to the cricket grounds. Very good location. Clean and fit for purpose. Self catering accommodation set out like a studio flat. Twin bedroom with en suite bathroom and a kitchenette area. I liked it.

Stayed in a two bedroom unit for one night only. The motel was conveniently located and the unit was clean. It was smaller than it appeared in the photos and the kitchen was basic - really nowhere to put anything if you wanted to be self-catering, it was hard enough to serve up our takeaways! The dining table had seating...
