Stayed 3 nights in early November; very comfortable. Great to have the well stocked kitchenette. It was just down the street from a small market where we got some breakfast items for the room, and several fast food venues, plus a nice restaurant, so something for everybody. The staff helped us with printing out a voucher for our reef tour... More

We stayed here while waiting to go on our Coral Princess Cruise of the Great Barrier Reef. We found it to be clean & comfortable. We found the staff to be most helpful & pleasant. It's in a good location, close to a bus stop, public phone, supermarket, liquor store and plenty of eat in or take away food outlets.... More

We are a family of four and stayed 9 nights here. We found this to be a comfortable place to stay in the 2 bedroom apartment. Like others have said perhaps a little compact in the living area but as it was really only a base (as most of our time was out exploring the area) it was not an... More

We were impressed with our motel style accommodation when we stayed recently. The kitchenette was a bonus. Neat & tidy with well kept gardens. Would recommend this to anyone looking for value for money.

One nighter out early next morning, cheap is good. Dont need nothing too fancy, and the High Chaparral futted the bill, and was quite a suprise. It is exactly what it is, a good budget motel, big room, big bed, clean sheets, big shower, nice towels well clean. Well positioned for supplies, kebabs, fish n chips, local grocer come supermarket,... More

We were here for a couple of nights and whilst this place is not a world-beater it is fine. We had to move between rooms and I have to say they are spotless. It's an old place and on the highway. Well cared for. The staff are pleasant enough and we had no problems. A decent BBQ area and small... More

The place is nicely located on Sheridan St. and in walking distance to downtown. The rooms are spacious and beds are good. Excellent WiFi-connection free of charge! The rooms are not cleaned very well, if housekeeping shows up at all. It would need a thorough refresh. Otherwise nothing fancy, nothing bad. The owners seem to be pretty relaxed and not... More
