Absolutely nice place and also nice people.
Accommodation is « spic and span » ( very very clean)
You can hire a room, and they have 2 powered places for little campervans.
Bit noisy due the road, but we were so tiered that even this noise didn’t batter us

We wanted to stay with a tent, but the site is very close to the highway. Nice cosy place with good and clean facilities. Ideal if you stay in a room or with a camper van. Not so much with a tent due to the noise of the highway.

Stayed there for one night with a motorhome. Just 2 motorhome sites next to the motel, nice setting. Very friendly and not too pricy. To recommend!
