This motel was in the perfect location to the central business district and had a very good restaurant. The room was comfortable, clean and well appointed. The restaurant at this motel was also very good.

The outside of this hotel is a little off putting - one really doesn't expect much on viewing the outside (which still has an old Best Western name painted on the outside) but the inside has obviously been redecorated and refurbished not too long ago, I had a room upstairs at the back which was reasonably quiet given that the...

Stayed for 2 nights, our room was facing the intersection, a bit noisy from the traffic. And the trees scraping up against the window didn`t help. The Big let down is you can`t cook toast in rooms,they only have coffee. Very clean rooms they made our beds, barthroom door handle hard to open. We smelt cigarette smoke from the hallway... More

Good standard, quiet accommodation in a convenient central location. Top restaurant with with good menu choices and very reasonable prices for food and drinks. Overall service in the motel is excellent. We were served a first class dinner in our room when the restaurant was booked out on Christmas Day! Jon is a fine host.

We come for dinner tonight (Father's Day) the lamb shank was absolutely Devine. The rich wine gravy was amazing. The only thing I could pick out of All our meals was the salad dressing was too much honey and the coffee was a little bitter. Over all the staff was good- not pushy but knew when you clear plates and... More

rooms are comfortable and fairly clean but I suggest getting a room that dosent have a window to the main road as it does get very noisy in the mornings, other then that overall good experience and service was great. Would stay again but only for 1 or 2 nights not a place I would stay for a long period.

Have enjoyed our short stays here over the past two years. Very close to centre of town. Easy walk to restaurants and shops. Great rooms for family with a child as there are two beds in separated areas. Will stay again

Formerly the Barkly Motel, this motel is a couple of hundred meters on one edge of the main town. Rooms are spacious with large bathrooms and good linen, pillows and towels. Large parking lot and an excellent restaurant visited also by the locals. We rated this friendly and efficient establishment as fair value
