A great motel with THE most comfy bed and cosy room. Great shower, so noise proof we only heard the rain when we opened the bathroom door and could hear it through the skylight. The owners are very very friendly and accommodating even letting my hubby park our precious rare car under the carport where the owners car normally parks.... More

I don't have anything bad to say about this motel. I just don't have anything GOOD to say. It was adequate, but tired. And the towels were so, SO tired. Once upon a time they would have been brown and fluffy with tight selvedges. Today they are faded, thin, and tatty, and were the first things I saw arranged as... More

We booked this motel after reading all the reviews on this site. It is a grade above the typical 1970's country motel you see in most towns. The owners are most helpful. You should note that the air conditioner is inadequate and took ages to heat the room beyond 18 degrees. Also there is no heating in the bathroom which... More

What wonderful friendly service. Next time I'm travelling to the area I will definitely be staying here again. Very comfortable rooms with air con and electric blankets for the cooler months. Very clean. Breakfast was delicious too. Easy access and off street parking.

Air conditioner is quiet and works very well and TV was simple to use and good reception. It wasn't until I got into bed to sleep that I... More

We stayed for 3 nights on a short trip from Sydney . Best shower I have had in any motel ever, rooms clean and tidy, very comfortable beds, staff very friendly & helpful,good location. Will stay again without hesitation . Strongly recommend dinner at the Australian Hotel , it doesn't look like much but it was sensational .

We had a family emergency & had 4 adults & 3 kids all stay in one room, plenty of room, clean & comfortable. Will definitely stay again. If i had to say something negative, then the pillows were a bit hard.

Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The large family rooms even though they are one room they are very large and roomy which is what you need when a few people are staying together. Sorry you did not like the pillows, we have just replaced them all and were told that for the first little while they may be... More

We have stayed at this motel for last couple of years at Easter and have found it a great place to stay as it is close to all amenities, clean and good old fashioned service. The rooms are clean and tidy with plenty of room in the bathroom. The owners are more than happy to assist with your requirements as... More

Our Sealy Pillow Top Beds win us many a compliment, Malcolm chose well when we put those in. To try to always give good service as this means everything in the hospitality trade.
