They tried telling us we hadnt booked for the baby. (we rung booking.com who confirmed we had, wed also booked a porta cot) Every other motel... More

helpful staff and the Hotel decor is amazing. The pool is the stuff dreams are made of and the pool bar and food service excellent. Breakfast had plenty of choice and we enjoyed the bar as well. Very Very Good Hotel.

We stayed there with the family to stay over before embarking on a road trip. The service was good and friendly, facilities were clean. It is in a busy road, but we had a unit at the rear of the section so it was quiet. I'll give it the thumbs up for more functional than ambience.

Nothing too amazing about this motel. Our simple room looked clean but it didn't feel like it. Wifi connectivity sucks. Our couch was broken and going anywhere near the linen made me itch. Only check in here if you've got no where else to stay.

I have stayed at the Archilles Motel twice. The first visit, I booked a book. It was cheap When I turned up, it looked nothing like the picture on the internet. I paid a bit more for a better room. In the room I found some long black hairs on the pillow case of the fresh bedding. The room was... More

The Owner was awful. She threatened to call the police, threatened to use our card and take whatever money she felt we owed and harassed my wife on the phone whilst she was recovering from a hospital procedure (despite being repeatedly told that she was in hospital). On the plus side she did give us a discount (after booking us... More

I booked this motel as we were down for cup week (6 nights) and I wanted a motel unit with plenty of space including a separate bedroom. I also wanted something that was modern and was swayed by the description of some units being described as deluxe and renovated. The unit was certainly spacious although the bathroom was compact. The... More

Three of us guys came down to play poker at the casino for 5 nights and got great service throughout our stay. We made a booking change, there was a payment error from us and, we arrived early. The owner let us into our motel to unpack, drove us to the casino and dealt with an electrical problem after hours.... More
