They have a disabled room, but if you have an assistance dog, beware, the manager will make derogatory assumptions about your personal hygeine standards. I had been a loyal customer, visiting at least 4 times a year for 10 years, but when I got an assistance animal things changed. The last time we went to book, we had been assigned to the one room I dislike. This was because several people made derogatory unhygenic assumptions about my AD, but did not ask whether they were correct- they acted as though their assumptions were fact, and changed their service to me accordingly. I will not be going back, nor will my friends, family, or AD support community.
Until then, we loved this motel.

Arrived on closing time without a booking and was offered the last room !

Sleeping comfort was very good and everything clean ..... the most important things.

Room upstairs seemed well soundproofed from adjoining rooms.

Only negative is haphazard parking ......

David and Emma (the owners) are awesome. Nothing was ever a problem and they both go over and above expectations to make sure your stay is as pleasurable as possible.
Rooms are very clean and everything works.
The onsite restaurant is way above what you expect and the food is of a very high caliber.
Cant recommend this place enough

We stayed twice at the Rose during our visit to the area, the Rose is run by a lovely couple Jacqui and Andrew who go the extra mile as do the wonderful team who support them.
The rooms are immaculately cleaned daily to a very high standard and provide a kettle,fridge,toaster,microwave and TV and beds to any mixture singles doubles etc and are sumptuous comfortable.
There is a very welcoming pool for those that like to cool down
The Rose has a restaurant which serves excellent large portions of home cooked food in a no fuss way complemented by a small bar at more than reasonable prices, other residents and locals provide lovely company over a few drinks.
Needless to say we will return to stay on our next visit to the area which hopefully will not be long. A very reasonably priced Motel.
Thank you Jacqui and Andrew. Doug and Jan N UK residence
