After meeting back up with the galley again (my gf), after she was way on holidays for a while, we had a wonderful reunion. The night was picturesque and picture perfect. No compalaints late at night when we returned to the hotel, and the beds had good bounce which allowed for a good night. There was no bird poo or... More

My husband and I booked into this motel for one night as we were attending a party close by. We were very disappointed with the room. The room and bed smelt, it was in poor condition, there was no shampoo which is always supplied in other motels we stay, the cups were not clean. I would not recommend any of... More

We just stayed here overnight on the way thru to Canberra and found it had all we needed. The beds were comfortable it was easy to find and access and the location was great for our needs. The young man in the office was very friendly and helped with all our queries. The bathroom was functional and clean as was... More

Service friendly...but it didn't excuse the bird crap in the sheets and windows open that didn't lock (they were open to try rid the stench of the mouldy bathroom..didn't.. work!!) Over all was just a flimsy pillow for the night..the blankets with cigarette burns were warm though..

This would have to be the WORST hotel I've ever stayed in!! Rusty toaster; no plates or cutlery. If you did want to use the toaster or the kettle you had to unplug the microwave first. Bed pushed up against the wall so you had to get in and out one at a time or climb the length of the... More

Thankfully only stayed one night. Our room was very cosy... in fact so cosy that one side of the queen bed was pushed against the wall, very difficult to access for me. But the best, was that there were NO bed lights. On discovering this my husband saw the owner who gave us one desk light,,, still not good enough,... More

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment overnight, and it was massive. Large living area downstairs, with a double bed in an open room at the top of the stairs and a separate bedroom with bunk. The bathroom was clean and modern. At just under $200 for the night though, I thought it was a bit expensive for a motel in... More

The bathroom was clean and the sheets were clean, which was great. But there were small cockroaches everywhere, including inside the kettle - so we couldn't even have a cup of tea. Also they turn the lights off outside at some point which is very unhelpful and dangerous. We came back at 11pm and their sign was not lit up... More

I stayed two nights. The manager was friendly and helpful and check in went smoothly. Yes the rooms are a bit tatty but they were clean and everything worked. The WiFi was cheap at $10 per 24 hours with a good download allowance. I had a room service meal that was adequate on the first evening. Breakfast was good value... More

Just stayed one night in Newcastle. Got a free room upgrade. Place was clean, well equipped and well priced. Reception was friendly. Shops, restaurants and yummy pub in walking distance. Would stay here again.
