YOUR COUNTRYSIDE HOME FROM HOME
The motel is back! Sure, the word may prompt bad flashbacks of pulling in for the night at a drab motor inn after driving for hours in the family car, but things have changed big-time.
Here at the ‘Donkey we have reinvented the classic '50s style motel. Yes, you can still pull right up conveniently next to your guest room door but the look is very NOT motel. Converted shiplap-clad stables provide the accommodation, with eye-catching décor and thoughtful home comforts-every room has a different look and are simple but tastefully designed.
A choice of single, double, twin, family and pet-friendly accommodation is available. Each of our stable rooms is en-suite with a range of modern facilities including a complimentary drinks service in the room ensuring you feel right at home. In the main house, accommodation is on the first floor with superb views of the surrounding countryside. The rooms comprise our superior four-poster room or bridal suite, a junior four-poster room and our economy double are each served from a common landing via a short staircase.
BEST RATES BOOKING DIRECT GUARANTEED
It's a myth that shopping online for accommodation will save you money. It’s so true folks... booking platforms such Booking.com, Expedia, Hotels.com, and the rest all charge us (the hotel) between 15%-21% commission on the gross room rate. Inevitably hotels have to pass this on to the customer - so we can guarantee to you that our prices are always significantly cheaper when booking directly with us. When hotels load up their prices on third-party websites and platforms, they inflate the rate to cover the cost of commission. They can't afford not to and they all do it. The budget chains who shall remain nameless don't even use the traditional online platforms as their rates are already too low and there's just no room for any commission!
So our travel tip....always call the hotel directly who will, like us, happily undercut any rates available on all the online platforms... Alternatively, click on the book now button below and be taken straight through to the lowest available rates here at the 'Donkey.
