We went there on Sat lunch, there isn't that many people, good selection of menu items. You have order and pay before serve. Good service, there are bar and other areas. Parking was easy, you walk in immediately you will be impressed by how original they have kept it.

"If you require ground floor then it would have to be the Motel. Stairs necessary to all hotel rooms"
"Anywhere else."
"There is a ground floor and 1st floor in the motel. We prefer ground floor."
"Don't go there! If you already booked, try to find a better place (that would be easy)!"
"Some upstairs rooms appear to have outward facing balconies and an inner balcony area with tables & chairs."
