Everything you would expect from a motel room and then some. Nice quiet location set in leafy surroundings and yet right on the highway. Friendly staff, well appointed rooms, good restaurant bar and pool. I recommend this place and would definitely stay here again.

We had a great night in a spa room with a beautiful view of the resort gardens. The amazingly large and comfy bed made sleep a breeze. The huge tv was a surprise and with foxtel included, finding something to watch was easy! Fantastic service from the front desk and an amazing breakfast in gorgeous treeehouse reataurant topped off our... 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 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...
