This was my second stay here in 6 weeks and I returned when passing through, due to the very good value. The room is small and basic, but comfortable and such a pleasure to be told not to bother washing any dishes, as the cleaners put them through a dishwasher. So often find dirty dishes in rooms and the staff... More

I stayed at this place with my family for one night, and our experience has been less than ordinary. The main factor being the rudeness of the owners/ carers of this place. We called well in advance to confirm the booking and still the booking was in the wrong name. While checking-In we were told that no cooking is allowed... More

We are always keen to receive feedback whether it is positive or negative. I am happy to say that it is usually good. Now to address a couple of points: a. Booking not in the correct name. I believe we had two letters of the name for the booking incorrect. A difficult to spell surname. b. No cooking in the... More

Opposite the lake and short walk into town. Away from all the noise. Free wifi, off street parking and swimming pool. Better rates for longer stays. Managers are extremely helpful and friendly. Also a bbq. Across the road from boot camp classes and stand up paddle board classes and hire. Beds were comfy and everything was clean.

We stayed here one night on our journey down the coast road from Sydney to Melbourne. It was really good value at $65/night for a standard room. As others have said, it's quite basic but has everything needed for a night's accommodation, including free wifi, heating, comfortable bed and good shower. The decor was quite old-fashioned but clean and well... More

Only here one night, $75, for 2 people, basic but very clean and tidy. Quiet at night. Tv didn't work so owner tried 2 more then moved us next door, he was keen to fix the problem straight away. Good value for money for overnight stay

Thank you very much for your positive report of our motel. It is sometimes difficult to please all of the people all of the time so it is very pleasing to see where someone is happy with our efforts. Thank you. More

This motel was the most comfortable and best value for money we stayed in on the final leg of a 3.5 week road trip. Our twin room turned out to be a suite with a separate room for my adult daughter. In fact it was so comfortable after all that time on the road we extended our stay. Wifi was... More

It was a nice stay, good value for money. Very kind personal. Spacious room with all amenities, large fridge and microwave oven, large bathroom. Free parking, but there wasn't any WiFi. Breakfast was also included in the very low room price. I highly recommend.

Stayed here for a couple of nights, right on the highway facing the water . The price was great just $60 including a continental breakfast . The rooms were dated but some work done to moderise them up. The only downside was the lady in reception (I presume the owner) who was very terse and lacked any PR skills, she... More

Cheap room rates and had the basic facilities of a motor inn - tv, fridge, comfortable bed, parking, thermal flask.. Strangely, the continental bfast (toast + cereal + juice) was served to us via a small door, making us feel like we were prisoners of some sort! But it was a creative idea...
