I needed a stop over on route from Toowoomba to Sydney and selected this hotel. Very reasonable. Clean, convenient and worth it to have a restaurant on site. Management welcoming and friendly. Dinner in restaurant and service were both good.

Stayed one night here, went with my sister-in-law for work . Very nice accommodation, clean and relatively easy to find as on the main highway. The restaurant, was quite good ,nice atmosphere as you look out at a rain forest. Staff were polite and helpful.

Thank you for your review. Although we have ample parking for small vehicles right up to coaches and trucks due to the layout of the property it's unfortunate that not everybody can park directly in front of their room. Parking is always easy access and only a short walk to your room. On any occasion when assistance is required for... More

This resort is located on the outskirts and is just off the highway. I thought there would be a lot of traffic noise but as the rooms are set back from the road that was certainly not an issue. The room was very clean and spacious and has been well maintained since being renovated a couple of years ago. There... More

Glad you guys enjoyed your stay with us. It was unfortunate that you didn't get to dine at the Treehouse Restaurant due to the restaurant being closed on Sundays. It is great that you had a nice night out down at the marina which is only a short drive from our motel. We look forward to seeing you again and... More

Beautiful place that is hidden, I’ve stayed here many times, only for one night usually. The place is always clean, the beds are really comfy and the rooms up to standards and the plus side it's only $90! There is free fast wifi! One of the rooms that we stayed in the shower door wouldn’t close properly.. but other than... More

Huge room and bathroom was ample. Kingsize bed and nice and coftable, big tv and foxtel. Clean and tidy, aircon kept room warm. Some snacks.and drinks... More

This complex was on the main highway and even with earplugs you could hear the traffic on the highway. Room was clean and spacious. Staff were friendly. Do not recommend front rooms that are over the driveway due to the noise. Possibly a room at the back would be better.

This place is on the main highway and my heart fell when I realised we would be in a location that was so far away from anything. In fact I ended up having to rent a car as the next day I would have been left totally stranded once my colleague left for Sydney (I had originally planned to leave... More

Went into the Restaurant waiting area - looked up and saw 2 huge Wasp/Hornets nests inside the roof. And spider webs from the table condiments to the windows on some tables. Room was ok, pillows were like rocks though.
