I am wheat intollerant and normally have a problem at meal time.....Not here...The Mango, Avocado,Cashew and Prawn salad was mouthwatering. You could... More

We arrived late and were pretty exchausted from a long drive and happy to found the Motel which we booked in advance. We paid cash when we get the room key. So we parked the car and stepped into our room and the first thing we saw when turning the light on was a ~2-3 inch cockroach (see photo, after... More

I would like to address this cockroach issue you experienced at our motel. Firstly we have in every unit Electronic Insect Repellents. We have found over the last 16 years that they have work very well. We are also particular with our standard of cleaning. Cockroaches have never been a problem. If you read other reviews on our motel you... More

On a recent visit to Grafton we spent 3 nights here. The motel is just off the highway but we didn't have any problems with traffic noise. The rooms were clean and well appointed, comfortable beds, functional bathrooms, We had dinner in the restaurant - prices were a bit high but the food was excellent and the convenience was worth...

Such pleasant people. They really excel at customer service. Rooms were clean, comfortable & had everything needed - unlike many we have been in lately. Restaurant food was fresh, well cooked & portions were generous. Attentive service was not overdone. Breakfast was on time & delivered with a smile- again generous & well cooked. In all a great place to... More

This motel was available during the Christmas/ New Year break. We found the rooms exceptionally clean, we weren't bothered by the highway and we sampled the breakfast in our room on one visit and had a meal in the restaurant one evening on our return visit. The steaks were beautifully cooked, and very generous portions.

We stayed here on the way through on a long road trip, and we really enjoyed the clean rooms and the quiet. We appreciated the two-room suite option which was great for our family with 3 singles in one room and a double in the other, both rooms with TVs & a shared bathroom. Wish more motels offered this privacy!... More

Thank you for writing your review. We are pleased you found our motel suitable for your needs. I would have thought that our $10.00 children's menu and $25.00 for a main meal is about as cheap as any Club Meal or Counter Lunch you could get anywhere plus you have lovely restaurant to dine-in plus table service. We think our... More

I have stayed here several times. The rooms are very clean and modern the facilities are what you expect for a stop over point, there is a pool out the back if you are relaxing. Espana is very quiet considering it is on the highway so don't let that put you off. The restaurant is great, the best meals in... More

With most hotels booked out on Boxing Day we were very relieved to find a room due to a no-show at this hotel. While anything was going to be an improvement on sleeping in our car, we were very pleasantly surprised by the accommodations we found here. The bed was a king size and very comfortable, in fact one of... More

After a long day on the road from QLD in rain and heavy holiday traffic, this was a very welcome relief. Clean and comfortable (& reasonably priced for the time of year!). The management were friendly and shared a smile. Couldn't ask for better. (We'll call in again on our way back home, without a doubt).
