Only good thing about this hotel was the wifi! Rooms were old and very outdated. Beds were uncomfortable and felt like they were as old as the rooms. Felt like I was going to get bed bugs sleeping on it! Shower pressure was awful! But the worst was the air-con, nice window box unit about 4 decades old as well... More

Perhaps you should make sure you are posting a review on the correct property! You have not stayed with us before and going by your review you stayed at the small motel located next to us. Incorrect property reviews can be very damaging to businesses. More

Have stayed here a few times and would always stay when travelling through. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room has always been very clean and comfortable, and pet friendly which has been so helpful for us. Free wifi and plenty of parking space available for trailers etc. I would absolutely recommend this motel.

Stayed here with the partner and baby on way to QLD. The service was excellent and good pricing. Rooms were very clean and tidy. Comfortable bed after long day driving. Would stay here again no problems. Quiet location easily accessible for large four wheel drive.

Had stayed here in 06 and today I was just as impressed. Travelling from NSW, tired AMD wanting a rest it was a quiet room and a comfy bed. Staff were helpful and reception open till 9:30pm was convenient. Will definitely stay here again in the future.

A convenient stop over on the way to Adelaide. Staff were pleasant, room was clean and restaurant food was good. This is not a 5 star motel but it is comfortable and priced accordingly. It is an excellent place to stop overnight.

Sorry to hear you had a bad experience. We have never had a problem with the Eye Fillets before to our knowledge.
