I stayed here this week with a girlfriend, and overall we were impressed with our experience. Service at reception was prompt, welcoming and friendly, our room was clean and quiet...and we appreciated the layout with the bathroom in the centre of the room giving us each a little more privacy between our beds. It was an unusual room layout, but... More

I booked this motel last minute when my original plan fell through. I wasn't disappointed. The staff were helpful and friendly. The room was clean & neat and I got to take a bath, which I desperately needed after a day in the cold & rain. Plumbing was a tad noisy, but I had a great night's sleep.

The room here was a good size and the spa bath was large. I was disappointed though, as it was not as new and sparkly as it's 4 star rating. The trim in the room (ie doors and skirtings) were painted in an unfortunate yellow/cream colour which clashed somewhat with the slightly beige toned walls. This together with the styling,... More

So bad, so noisy, so rude these are just some of the things that are wrong with this establishment. If you have children you can expect to not be accommodated for. The stuff are very disrespectful towards guests. If you don't like noise than the Country Comfort just isn't for you. With trucks and all sort going past the building... More

Well set out with the single beds and queen separated by the bathroom. Fairly small area with only the basics (kettle, minimum milk serves) but adequate, fairly quiet, clean and comfortable. TV not viewable from any area except the main bedroom. The bathroom door was hard to open. Only stayed one night for the Begonia festival- so it adequately served... More

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...
