This hotel was in an excellent location for a first-time visitor to this sunny city, being both picturesque and central. The welcome was warm, and assistance provided with luggage, which was a help as there is no lift to the upper floor. The room was very clean and comfortable, with all facilities. Some of the public areas do need a... More

Stayed two nights on the way North. Very comfortable room, with the ability to open the door to the balcony to let fresh air in. Unfortunately no water view - but no noise from the carpark and road (with the door closed, anyway.) Water side of the hotel was a very relaxing walk along a path - watching the local... More

We were pleasantly surprised when we booked in and upgraded to a waterfront room for just $10.00 extra. the rooms are good with a queen bed and a single bed and a small balcony overlooking the pool and the river.

I stayed here over night on our way home from Queensland , I found the staff very friendly and helpful, the room was comfortable and clean,with a nice view over looking the water. The meals in the dinning room was very good, Waters Edge Country comfort will from now on be my over night stop.

Checked in early this week after a busy business day found that I could hear the guests in the room next door through adjoining door. I was trying to work and very annoying. Staff found me another room which was excellent. The motel is looking very tired but adequate for the price.
