I stayed at this motel and found the grounds and gardens well maintained and neat. The rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean and I loved the fact that there was a large window in the room to allow lots of light and fresh air into the room. Rooms are serviced daily. The restaurant is lovely and the menu quite extensive... More

I stayed at the Rocky Gardens Motor Inn and found the staff and the accommodation very good. The Meals at both breakfast and the evening dinner meal first class not found in many motels. I would highly recommend any one wishing to stay at this motel.

Kay and Ray could not do enough to make my stay more comfortable, they have constant smiles on their faces and it would seem that they really enjoy being wonderful hosts. The rooms are clean and neat with all amenities functional and well maintained,... More

I stayed here for 4 nights on business. The rooms were comfortable and clean and the laundry facility was good. Whilst the bathroom has a window, it would have been better if they were fitted with an exhaust fan as traffic can be noisy from the early hours of the morning. The Fern Restaurant is sensational and served some of... More
