This motel is an older style but has been tastefully refurbished. Being low cost we were expecting the worst. What a pleasant surprise. Nice firm bed and tasteful decor. The studio unit we stayed in had a long bench which accommodated the TV. Kettle, jug with a well appointed shelf unit overhead which provided good quality tableware and cutlery plus... More

We stayed one night in a pleasant unit down the back, the windows are double glazed so there was no highway noise - Jim was very helpful and made our stay very pleasant. The unit was very clean and comfortable.

Stayed one night. The unit was alright although when I booked, the website said 1 queen bed and 3 singles but it had 2 double beds and 2 singles. A bit disappointing as double beds are too short. Booked for 4 adults but there was only 3 chairs at the dining table and one was not very sturdy. Also rubbish... More

We were directed to the Central Court Motel by the i-Site just around the corner. The motel looked mature but was kept in good decorative order, clean and tidy and newly fitted out. Our double room with en suite had everything we needed at $100 for the night.

Stayed over the long weekend with my husband and children. Was $135 a night which was great for a two bedroom motel. Cute modest units very clean and tidy. Not a flash place but that was not our expectation or need. Best thing is the management was fantastic, really made us feel at home and never hesitated to help us... More

Recently stayed for a week with a large group and although the hotel is a little dated, basic and on the main road (can be noisy) it is great value for money and the manager is first class. Nothing was a hassle and he went out of his way to make us all feel comfortable. You get what you pay... More

Hi, We appreciate reviews that are constructive and informative. In this case we are sorry this guest / s didn't enjoy there stay. I guess if the room was so so bad why had they not told us, and we could have moved them or refunded there money. If the room was musty then we could have moved the guests... More

Our daughter, partner and infant were in the... More

Excellent value for money, decor is fairly neutral and up to date but you can see the motel itself is not very modern. Nice big tv screen. Well equipped and free wifi. The owner Kevin was very friendly and helpful.
