2. Esplanade Motels

And for the most diverse and comprehensive motel in the area, Esplanade Motels offers a range of uniquely designed one-, two- and three-bedroom units sleeping two to six guests. Interiors are a mix of contemporary refurbishments and a touch of the well-maintained old-school, featuring full kitchens with an oven, free WiFi and Sky TV. While cooler evenings are best spent in your warm unit with an electric heater, summer can be enjoyed out by the small grassy barbecue area. What’s more, the motel is a short stroll from the town centre. We also recommend this motel in the 9 Best Family Accommodation in Gore.
