The chairs were badly stained and worn through. There was no shampoo and conditioner supplied and the taps dripped. Overwhelming smell of public toilet disinfect upon entry! When brought to the attention of the manager he didn't appear interested.

We booked one night at this hotel on Booking.com for the 4th January 2015. On arrival we expected to pay $120.00 (including breakfast) but the 'relief' receptionist told us it would be $105.00. This was because all the staff were on holiday and the restaurant was closed. Therefore there was no included breakfast, fair enough we thought ! The next... More

We had already booked before I read other travellers reviews on trip advisor, so I wasn't looking forward to staying. However, the proprietor was friendly enough when we arrived and we found the rooms to be fine. I guess it's all about expectations. Far from the worst motel I've stayed at. Location is good with the motel stretching between the... More

This was once a swank motel. You can tell from the design and architecture. The fact it is not any more is almost certainly down to management. This place is tired and has been allowed to become that way. In my room, the curtains were full of moth holes, the chair fabric was stained and the shower recess was old... More

Our first nights accommodation on our four week trip and we found the bed uncomfortable and guests will be charged $25.00 extra if they leave a light on or TV on departure. Dated décor is still in the 1970's

The Motel was closed when we arrived around 2 pm on Sunday 19th October 2014. The proprietor was annoyed that we disturbed his afternoon TV, asking us if we had a booking, he then proceeded to tell us that the Motel was closed after 10am on Sundays. I thought why book us knowing our arrival date & time. The lodgings... More

I would never stay at this place. The owner is rude, unprofessional, arrognant and has no concept of human compassion. Lucky for my partner and myself when we went up the road a little the man at the motel was very welcoming and friendly.

En route from SYD to BNE we simply needed a bed for the night. Normally we stay in Guyra but most motels there are pretty primitive. This place offered a quiet location away from the highway, a restaurant if required, quite a large room with dining table & importantly electric blankets with "Swiss water", ie., instantly hot for showers but...

It is sad when so many people who stay here and take the time in writing about there stay, the owner or management dont take note. Sadly I didn't checkout trip adviser before booking and used booking.com. I was sucked in by the nice websites pictures. All I needed was a place to stay for work. Like all the reviews... More
