We enjoyed a one night stopover at the Big Windmill Motel. Located on the highway it would be easy to spot driving from the south (you could not miss seeing the windmill). We were approaching from the north and had a little trouble finding it as it was located further south than what we expected. Although on the highway it... More

We stopped here last minute and were so pleased we did. The rooms are spacious, the beds are comfy and everything was really clean. The staff are really friendly and it is very reasonably priced. We stayed in the family room which had a double and two singles and still heaps of room for my kids to play. The restaurant... More

Bed was comfy and noise wasnt so bad. Do get a room closer to the back if you are worried about noise . Numbers 30-40s for... More

I only stayed for one night on a business trip. Reception staff were kind and helpful, even giving me the tip to make a booking at the restaurant if I wanted to eat there as Tuesday night is 'locals night' and it gets full. The restaurant was the whole reason I booked this place in particular because it's currently ranked... More

We froze the night we slept because we couldn't figure out controls on the heater but was sorted out in the morning at least after pressing a few more buttons (user error!). Not saying it's so much a fault on the place but it's just something to note. Rooms were clean for an older type place and shower pressure was... More

We stayed in two different rooms, both very clean. the rooms at the back of the motel are bigger, but the front rooms are great for a couple, you can hear the traffic in the front room, but didn't worry me at all. Plenty of room for parking, all staff were very friendly and helpful. Good value for Money

Very good overnight stop on a road trip. Typical drive up pacific hwy motel in need of some renovation but this is well underway and will be an easy 5 rating soon. Actually v quiet despite main road location. Main benefit as far as I am concerned is proximity to Edelweiss restaurant. After a long drive it was great to... More

What we liked: good clean hotel, with large rooms, and lots of parking. You can ever park sideways in front of your room if you want. What we didn't like: it is a bit south of the CBD, and there is not much within walking distance except the hotel restaurant.
