Recently renovated, excellent value motel

Orford Blue Waters is excellent value accommodation. It is a traditional small motel with relatively few rooms of different formats aiming to appeal to several types of budget conscious traveller. Our room had been renovated very recently. It was simply decorated but with everything one needs for a comfortable stay including a sofa,fridge,free standing table and sufficient cutlery to enable breakfast to be taken in your room. It was also very clean. The deck with a table and chairs was an added bonus. There is an attached pub which does very good pub style food but it does get very busy at weekends. Indeed my only criticism would be that whilst there is plenty of Parking locals going to the pub park outside the rooms rather than walk the few extra yards. If you go to bed early the sound of satisfied customers returning to their cars and conversing outside your bedroom window could disturb you. We sleep later so it was not a problem for us. We would stay there again.

    The room was newly renovated and tasteful. However, the hallway entrance was very old and shabby. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and professional.
