Happy and friendly office staff on arrival. Clean and tidy room but I think the best feature was the nice, hot shower with an awesome water pressure. Beds a bit harder than my liking but then no motel bed is a comfortable as your own at home. A welcome retreat after hours of driving.

Welcome stop after hours of driving. Rooms were clean and comfortable and owners very friendly. The rooms have been well maintained. We chose to just eat at the little restaurant at the motel and while we both weren't overly hungry, am glad we only shared a meal. Two pieces of fish, chips and salad very nice and at $15 was...

I found the beds & pillows to be very comfortable. Nice, clean room with good air conditioning. Great service from the managers. I needed new batteries in the remote control & they sorted that quickly. You can get big meals in the restaurant & the drinks are cheap. Welcoming atmosphere at dinner time. This motel is close to everything you... More

We were lucky to have stayed in a newly renovated room. It was spacious, clean and the bed was comfortable. Very friendly and helpful staff. Restaurant was closed but I would highly recommend the Shamrock hotel right across the road for a meal.

Not a bad location bit expensive for where it is considering the bigger motels in town offer a better Ono on one service probably would not choose this particular motel again as for a few dollars more you could enjoy a much more luxurious stay in town

The owners of this motel are the friendliest I have found. I live 3hrs away and stay here every few months when I go to town. Their homecooked meals are the best as well. Nothing is too much trouble for this lovely couple. I even saw him help a guest change 2 tyres on his car. No pool, only a... More
