We arrive around 1pm after driving from Batemans Bay. It was a Hot day. Our room wasn't quite ready so we waited in the reception... More

The hotel looks quite rough from the exterior and we were pleasantly surprised that our motel room was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately wifi didn't work in the room and we couldn't get access to digital channels. The balcony would have been good had it not been overlooking the pub car park. However, sufficient for an overnight stay.

Staff were very friendly and the rooms are neat and tidy with plenty of facilities. We could fit our portable cot in the room also. Bathrooms very clean and exceptional hot water in shower. Service & Food in the Bistro was great. We enjoyed our stay.

My room was reasonably comfortable and kept very clean. I think I would have liked the hotel much more if I was not there during the Christmas/Boxing Day holiday period. The hotel shut down its restaurant for the entire time I was there, and the shopping center behind the hotel was totally shut down on Christmas and, having no car,... More

Staff were friendly, room was fine with good tea and coffee making. Bathroom was newly renovated and was well done. Toiletries were good quality and well stocked. Secure car parking was provided. There is a small shopping centre nearby with a Coles, a few bottle shops, cafes etc and a pretty good Nepalese restaurant which I highly recommend. Hotel location... More

Wasn't fancy but ok. The bistro meals were good. The wifi was good. Secure carprak was a bonus. Staff were nice. The one and only downside was the noise from the trucks stocking up Coles at 5:30am Room servicing was good, but put out the room service request tag otherwise they don't.

Good value. Good facilities and quiet. Close to most attractions. We also enjoyed a meal in a Nepalese Restaurant, located in the local shopping center. Secure parking available at no charge. We fund the bistro to noisy for dinner.

Room was modern, very clean and quiet. Free parking and WiFi added to the value. Close to a small shopping centre to pick up essentials and a large second hand book store - we enjoyed a Nepalese meal one evening and a breakfast in one of the coffee shops.We were there on a couple of hot days and the room...

I stayed recently with a friend People at the hotel where friendly. The rooms where clean and made up daily, although they where small what surrounds the hotel makes up for it, there is a bistro/ bar downstairs, laundry facilities, secure parking, and an ATM. The hotel also has a coles and cafe's within 2 min walking distance.

Two night stay. For us, would have been better if the single bed wasn't there as we didn't need it. There was very little room around the furniture so luggage space was interesting. Walls looked solid, but we definitely heard happy noises from an adjoining room. Room was clean, reception was average. Some undercover secure parking available.
