Only one thing wrong - the bed. I don't know if all units have the same beds, but in our unit it was a "sleepyhead hotelier". With two in the bed, when one turns over the other person bounces! Other than that everything was OK. Owners were friendly. Pool looked lovely. We didn't have any problem with road noise.

We didn't have a lot of contact with the owners apart from check in and check out, they seemed friendly enough. We didn't have time to try out the pool, but we dipped our feet in and was warm. Towels for pool provided at reception. Upsides: Room was clean and tidy, kitchenette had everything we needed when it came to... More

Although it seems to accommodate for children (small playing ground with a trampoline and plenty of good floating stuff in the pool like an inflatable crocodile), the owners really seem to have an issue with kids. Our 5 year old boy enjoyed the pool and was of course, like almost kid in water, over expressing his joy and contentment. We... More

If you look 25 years or younger I warn you not to stay here. My partner, two of our friends and myself, booked in for two nights. We were constantly watched and had almost zero privacy. From the moment we set foot on the motel grounds I felt as if I was doing something criminal, constantly warned that this was... More

We came in during the night, and they didn't put an extra bed in like promised. We slept okay, not enough blankets given. We had to wait until the next day to ask. My brother and I were in the pool and my mum got told off by the wife for having too much people in the room but we... More

When i realized the dates were wrong i rang up and got them changed to the right dates and made sure everything was booked to... More

Having booked with Cameron Thermal Motor Lodge for Feb 2015 and via conversations with the owner and her worker, I was disappointed and a bit miffed to receive an email stating that my booking had been canceled due to not booking the minimum of three nights stay over a long weekend. This had never been mentioned and several other places... More

Spent the night here while attending a soccer tournament in Greerton. The rooms were small but tidy & well appointed. Traffic noise wasn't an issue at all, we stayed in a King Studio which allowed enough space for myself & two kids. The real clincher for this place is the Thermal Pool, after a 2.5 hour drive the kids &... More

It's always a bit of a gamble to book accommodation on-line, as photos do not always give the total picture, so it's good to be able to read what others have had to say. In this instance, there were pros and cons. The pros were that the unit was spotlessly clean and the beds very comfortable, while the owners were... More
