A huge thanks to Bob, his wife, and Donna for a terrific weekend. Don't judge a book by it's cover with this place... The deluxe room we had was very spacious and tastefully decorated. Bed was super comfy, a huge tele, and great shower. The staff and restauraunt were the icing on the cake. We ate both nights there and... More

We booked our room through bookings.com and we are bitterly disappointed. We expected a sanctuary resort whilst it's only a renovated motel. The motel is right on the road so there is traffic noise and you can hear the other neighbours. The rooms are renovated and very clean but not 4 star and definitely not worth $190 a night. The...

Great value for money. Lots of lovely little touches that indicate thoughtful management and ensured a comfortable stay. We booked a family room and it was great value for money. I definitely recommend this property to the modest traveller that requires a stopover. Plump towels huge TV to match the huge room. Loving the quirky furniture and the touch of... More

Thank you to Mandy, Graeme, Donna and the Cook for looking after us. We were towing a large trailer and parking was easy and plentiful. We arrived in late (about 8pm) and appreciated being able to get a good meal without having to go out again. Breakfast next morning was great too, everything you might want to fuel you up... More

The food was excellent and a reasonable price. The staff were wonderful. Mandy and Graeme are to be commended for the effort they put into making the... More

The room was large and clean, the bed was comfy, the sofa and other furniture was good quality, the shower was hot. I need a walking frame to get around at the moment and the staff put me in an appropriate room with just one small step in and out. They were also unfailingly helpful opening doors etc and helping...

They have a sign on the highway saying "renovated to 4 star standard". That created an expectation that they struggle to meet. Yes, there have been some renovations, but certainly not to a 4 star standard. Rooms are spacious, pretty clean, but they fall down on the little things. Our room had a king bed, but it was 2 single... More
