I was charged 5% for using Amex, presumably 3% is the maximum they are allowed to charge, and I was not advised of the surcharge when I was paying either of my accounts. So he is making an extra 2% profit if you pay with Amex.

The best thing about this motor lodge was the manager and staff. They were just so helpful and looked after us very well. The buildings are old and are super basic but comfortable. The bed was fine and it had the TV and a wheel in shower. However the doors are very narrow and in order to get access to... More

Room was clean & well presented. We stayed in a twin room that had a queen sized bed & a single. It looked exactly as it appeared in the photographs. We only stopped for one night. We were quite impressed with how nicely the room was presented & bedding was very comfortable. The bathroom was very small, a little older... More

while the room was a little dated, it was very well furnished, the bed was great, and it was so clean! we will be back to stay for certain! the location was near some shops so we could grab a few snacks and have a nice quiet evening.

I have searched your name in our system and I can not find you at all so I think that you did NOT stay at this motel at all. Unfortunately anyone can write a review on Tripadvisor even if you have not stayed at the motel. It is unfair to the establishments. I am going to report this review and... More

We booked in for a single night as part of a group in Dapto for business. Our group occupied 6 of the 25 rooms. Not one of us will be returning. The towels were the nicest thing about the place and we appreciated the early check in. The dated decor could be overlooked but the poor service left us all... More

Thankyou for your review. Your children were left alone in the room while you moved tables and chairs into the other end of the car park to have a party. you could not see the room from where you were sitting or keep an eye on the children. They were screaming so loud that we could hear them in the... More

It was a great place for a night with our boys, they loved the pool. The room had everything we needed plus the perfect layout with the second room having a door that can be closed off the main room. :-) The spa bath was the most comfortable bath I have ever been in! It was a little drive from... More

We stayed in a Family Room with our three children. The Room was very clean and really comfortable. The kids loved the indoor pool and the Staff were extremely Friendly even when our children asked them a thousand questions. We will be back!!

Stayed two nights over the Easter long weekend. The room was outdated but that's something that doesn't bother me. The water pressure was the worst thing, either boiling hot water or freezing cold water that came out in a dribble. Being a busy weekend they were pretty full up so no point in bringing it up which leads me to... More
