Emma & David were very welcoming, super helpful and great hosts. Only had 1 night, but felt completely at home. A few mozzies in the room no doubt due to all the rain from Cyclone Ita. No biggie - Thanks from Megan from the NT :)

The family that run this motel were very welcoming and accommodating. The motel is clean with very comfortable beds. Even though it is on a main road there was no audible road noise while in the room. The only thing I could fault was the air conditioner which was a bit nosy - and the parrots. But that can't be...

The rooms were very clean and comfortable, the only thing my mother-in-law wasn't too keen on... More
