I stayed here about 2 weeks ago on a ski trip. I had a comfy room. Generally the standards are low in this part of NSW and prices are high during the ski season. The room I had was good enough, was clean and had everything I needed. The heater was working well. It's a rather long distance to the... More

Hi Madmoarder, First of all describing us as Indian is incorrect. We are pleased you liked our fresh towels. All our laundry is done in house by the same staff who do housekeeping. They do an excellent job. We welcome the opportunity to rectify issues when brought to our attention. Some guests behave badly and it becomes necessary to chastise... More

Stayed just one night because we didn't want to impose on relatives. For the price, we should have imposed! The property is undertaking some sort of refurbishment and, for my money, when you expect patrons to stay in a quasi construction site, you do what you can to make them as comfortable as you can. You do not: A) not... More

Thank you for choosing to stay. A - The motel is undergoing refurbishment as stated on our website and several reviews on Trip Advisor.

As the owner is slowly renovating the rooms in this hotel I would suggest that you request to look at the room prior to accepting it, I was given a room which was of an older style, the bed was not as comfortable as it could have been. After talking to management the next morning however, he relocated me to... More

Friendly place to stay. We were there with a group of people and we enjoyed it. It was only a one night stay. The only thing I was disappointed in was that there was nowhere for me to walk early in the morning.

Hi Ageless Angel, Thank you for staying with us. We are extremely pleased that your group enjoyed our hospitality. It is a pity you did not ask us about early morning walks.

We stopped here for one night recently. The price is fair for what you get. The bed was very comfortable which is the main thing, and the showers were hot. To be honest, as others have said the rooms could benefit from some fresh paint and more thorough cleaning.

An older motel in need of some TLC. Too far to walk into town. Friendly manager, comfortable bed, hot showers but that's where it ends.

Hi SMW, Thank you for staying with us. You are correct, as we did advise that this Motel was built in 1965 by Sir Reg Ansett and like many motels in Australia, it is of the same vintage. Though the motel has undergone many soft refurbishments. It is undergoing hard refurbishment now. We have three driveways, 2 main one have... More
