Well situated with very little road noise. The tariff was not discounted despite plenty of cards BUT a Continental Breakfast was included instead. Large comfortable room, silent air conditioner and helpful staff along with the Continental Breakfast made for the comfy overnight stay.

Perfect placement ... Even though its on the highway, you don't hear the traffic. Centrally located with the Main Street a short stroll away. Comfortable place to stay for a few nights. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Older looking motel outside but room was clean and tidy which is what you want. Very affordable.

If you are after a bed and a shower for not much cost then this is the place for you. Comfortable and reasonably clean. Room we had was a great size with the worlds smallest TV on the wall. No Foxtel but free wifi worked well. A simple breakfast was delivered and was pleasant. Owner extremely friendly and seemed to... More

The room we had was very spacious and so was the bathroom. It's a much older style Motel, but is clean and has all the amenities needed. Reception is very friendly and only to pleased to assist in any way they can.They also serve breakfast ( which is in the price ) to your room. Very enjoyable.

Dirty, filthy and disappointing. Tired and outdated, old towels, old sheets, grime everywhere. Tired and old I am ok with but the tired the cleaner it needs to be and then the towels and bedding need to be fantastic. Bed was lumpy and awful, shower head spurted sideways and the door was very hard to open. Will not stay here... More

Stayed here recently for business. Although the nightly rate is on the low side it was disappointing. Room was tired, out dated furniture in the room I was provided. The bathroom, a pool of water on floor near the toilet surprised me. I couldn't establish where it was from. The whole experience left me cold as the air conditioning unit... More
