Friendly welcome in reception. Very polite and helpful. Room very clean but unfortunately very dated. On the highway but traffic did not disturb us but @ $150 a night through wotif was disappointed that i read breakfast daily as meaning supplied. Not extra. But if this is the cheapest around i would stay again as friendly goes along way

The owners of this motel need help! They are two ladies madly running around in circles getting no where. And money seems to be the only language they understand! The room is clean, however extremely small, and I do mean really really small. When you are charged $135 for the night, it is extremely over priced. The bathroom is cheaply... More

We stayed in a spa room which was clean & well presented. However the toilet was far too close to the wall in the bathroom which meant you had to sit slightly sideways on it. The queen bed was very hard and my husband felt he was sleeping on a slope. My biggest problem with the room was a neighbours... More

Very nice staff went out of their way to help us, was able to book over the internet, emailed them with a mistake that I had made on the booking and they emailed back within the hour. This was a very pleasurable experience.

First impression was the stench of stale cigarette smoke. Linen and pillows also stunk of stale cigarette smoke. Bathroom would not even make it to one star with dodgy tiling and the shower recess started to fill up after only 1/2 a minute. Suspect partially blocked drain. Noisy air cond dripping condensation right outside the door. Wrecker ball needed.

When things are broken, I don't blame the motel... it is more the arrogance of past guests to the establishment. Management do not break things just to downgrade their service! Drapes hanging off rails - sad... and half the hairdryer ripped off in the bathroom... even worse, the fridge looks like some idiot has been opening beer bottles on the... More
