We were welcomed with an aggressive, loud and obnoxious woman. She was so confronting and rude that we cancelled our stay and went to another hotel. And we didn't even get our money back as she lied to our booking company on why we didn't stay. Disgraceful.

We have just spent one night here on our way back home and have to say we were very impressed. The staff were very helpful having our room ready two hours early after our early arrival. The room was clean and modern with a nice bathroom. We were also able to order dinner and have it brought to our room.... More

The room was clean and staff pleasant. It was a bit dated and our room seemed to have a few mozzies. Unfortunately there was also quite a bit of road noise. It was a little further away from the main town than I had hoped. The kids did enjoy the pool and free Wifi was a bonus.

Excellent motel! Not much to look at from the outside, but it has all been refurbished inside. Very modern and extremely clean and well maintained. The young manager was very lovely and hospitable in accommodating us with a room at such short notice without any hesitation, especially the Easter long weekend. Lovely kitchenette and coffee making facilities were just what... More

This hotel was rated 4 star on the website we booked it through....deffinately not. Old and daggy with little notes written in nikko on light switches and the airconditioner explaining their operation. Classy!! The room had a distinct odour, not pleasant. The bed was uncomfortable.

As many others have written, the buildings of this hotel are dated. However, the furnishings have been modernised and every attempt has been made to make this a comfortable and modern-feeling hotel. The rooms themselves are spacious, clean while being fitted with a modern lounge and a firm bed. The bathroom feels bit 1970s but it's big and very functional.... More

Booked into room 24 ( queen bed with separate twin singles) tucked in quiet bush setting with no road traffic even though we were just off M1 highway. Massive shower and two TV and usual coffee tray. Just note that entry is on North bound highway side only.

I have previously stayed at this property before on business, I returned to this property approximately 2 months later and found this stay just as good as the first. Being an ex hotel GM I expect a lot from properties. This property initially had me a little worried from the outside it is older in appearance and I do prefer... More

Been here several times. Only booked it a few hours before arrival and very courteous. Friendly welcome back. The rooms are spacious and modern. There is a lounge with a coffee table and a small 2 seat dining table, this is great for me to spread my paperwork across. Had a very nice dinner in the restaurant Treetops. A very... More

Hubby and I were driving to Sydney from Queensland and stopped at this motel to break up our trip. It's ideally situated on the main highway through so there was no need to deviate off our course and the next morning we just jumped back in the car and continued on. Even though it's on the main road, it's set... More
