Anyone who experienced a good time here obviously did not talk to owner Sheena who is rude and treats her guests as a burdon...DO NOT BOOK A ROOM HERE..They claim breakfast included but did not receive it.

Booked a family room for four. Room was OK but the reception staff was totally indifferent at check in. Plenty of signs advising that on site Bistro would open at 6 pm. But by 6.30 pm door was locked. On enquiry told by this same person that you had to reserve and as we had not done so she had... More

The lovely young employee and room attendant who checked me in was left to her own devices, management not around at check in time. My room in the cheaper annexe, not facing the pool, was delightfully furnished with retro trimmings and the aircon was excellently quiet and powerful in the extreme heat - that was a big plus. There's no... More

Stay far away from this motel, Extremely rude and unreasonable. As soon as i had paid i knew i made a mistake. Flea ridden bed, the smell of sewerage was disgusting when you sat outside. I have now read some other reviews and I agree with them all so wont go on about it. So much potential for the right... More

We had booked to stay at this motel for one night as we were travelling through from QLD to Victoria. On the day that we were meant to check in, our car broke down on the way to Tamworth, so my husband called to cancel our booking, as we would not be able to make it that day. After explaining...

Facts are, guest arrived late, rang and was rang back, text messages exchanged and we were told they didn't want room first night. They came back second night to stay with us then decided they were heading home early and left. They had booked 2 rooms the first night one direct, the other over the internet, they were abusive about... More

Bed comfortable. Price was right. Room clean, tidy & quiet. Stay let down by rudeness of woman at reception. And no, we didn't ask for a free stay as is the manager's response to negative reviews. Could have been a top little spot if we had of felt welcome!

If we would have had time to inspect we would not have stayed. Lady at reception was rude. Room was poorly maintained. Poor security on doors, bed uncomfortable. Draught stop on entrance dragging over tiles with screeching noise, shower cannot be stopped and walls and old tiles appear to have been overpainted far too often.

I would not recommend this place to anyone. The owner is very rude. Not helpful at all. I found a cockroach in my bed. The whole place needs to be upgrade for the amount of money you pay. There is also in Rooms 1 to 6 very undesirable people in there. Not recommend for families.
