I had a double bed to myself at this place and for a place to just crash overnight, it was very good, clean and comfortable. It's not somewhere I would stay for a week, unless you are on a budget. The small bathroom was off the bedroom that had a separate wash basin in the bedroom. In the living area... More

The motel is really cheap and clean and in a central location so that was great. But watch out for the really tacky extras. Never in all my adventures around Aus and the world have I been charged to use the second bed in the room. I deliberately booked a Queen Family room, so as to use the second bed,... More

As great men have said 'Context is everything '. We are disappointed that you had this reaction to a really cheap good value offer. The booking conditions are quite clear and are reflected on your booking confirmation which states no extra bed in addition to a queen bed . We do provide Twin rooms and scented liquid soap in modern... More

We've been driving nearly 9 hours and was with great joy to arrive at the Bamboo motel. Room was spacious. Bed was very comfortable and I struggled getting our of it without falling asleep. Only one suggestion though I do prefer having soap - not a big fan of this soap dispenser thingy - I would've used less than the... More

I dont normally stay here as I try and stay were I can earn Quantas points. However, I was only here overnight on sales calls to the local area and the local that you earn points from was fully booked. It was smack in the middle of town, water directly over the road and convenient to every where I was... More

We stayed here for two nights and enjoyed a comfortable stay. Great location, clean and cosy room. Our host was welcoming and helpful. Everything worked in our room. I have no hesitation in recommending Bamboo Motor Inn :)

Cheap room $89, was fairly central to everything. Bed not the most comfortable and heating was very old wall unit. If looking for somewhere cheap for the night would be suitable but not the most comfortable place given there are a few similarly priced competitors nearby.

Mid-week stay at Lakes. Unfortunately it was raining. The owner put us up in a back room. Very quiet. For the price, it was value for money. Across the road from the jetty, with boats, bird life, still water and floating restaurants. Sort stroll up the road to more places to eat. Not far from place to book boat trips.... More
