My partner and I were in an upstairs unit. We stayed for 4 nights in June. The owner was friendly and happy. On arrival we received a small milk for coffee ect. and we were shown to our upstairs room. The lounge area had a couch and 2x single beds. The kitchen had basic cooking needs but we ate out...

I stayed 3 nights at this motel in April. The owners were very friendly and were obviously part of a close extended family, which gave a nice feel. My room was clean, comfortable and had basic cooking facilities. I liked the emphasis that was placed on recycling (including a worm farm for scraps) and on generally being energy aware. The...

Arriving early we were able to book in straight away, had twin ground floor room which had a great walk in shower, cooking facilities, table and chairs. Everything was very clean and the price was a lot less than other places we had stayed on our trip. The other thing I liked was that the owner's son has set up... More

Excellent servicing the room. This does not always happen at other motels.Good value for money. A very enjoyable stay. We would definitely came back and stay in Ulster Lodge and also recommend to others. Central location and handy shop in front of the office.

We had booked at Motel 6 across the road from this one. On arrival we were told we would be accommodated at Ulster Motor Lodge (apparently the same management). Owner was happy to change our unit when we found the one assigned to us had the queen bed in the lounge rather than in the bedroom as expected. We had... More

Our room was very clean the day we arrived. But it was very cold and the tiny 4-bar radiator heater didn't heat the room much. The duvet wasn't very warm. We left a message for the maid the next day after spending the night a bit cold with a rug from our car and our big winter coats thrown over... More

Large flat screen TV, new kitchen with 4-burner stove, oven, new fridge and brand new bathroom. We were very satisfied. They... More

In amongst seemingly dozens of motels on Ulster St, we should have looked harder! Very peculiar staff member also runs the convenience store attached took 30 mins to find our $5 change. Room was quite clean but basic , queen bed in bedroom and single in lounge, fairly ratty, saggy and uncomfortable couch, ordinary TV reception, mismatched cutlery crockery and... More
