Karl and Sam were just lovely. They put themselves out when we arrived early and the staff were so friendly. The meals in the restaurant were huge and delicious. Our room was well appointed and clean with a wide array of snacks to choose from. A very central location close to everything yet quiet. Love to stay again.

The new Managers, Karl and Sam, have taken Karinga Motel from an unwelcoming place according to earlier reviews that I had read to a place that will attract many return visits. Nothing was to much trouble and anything else that was required was only a request away. Although our room had not yet been re-furbished it was spotlessly clean and... More

Stayed 4 nights at this hotel 19/5/14-23/5/14, I booked directly with Sam the manager who assured me that the room was of high standard. Stayed in room 108 which was a 4 Star Room with a Comfortable Queen size bed, sofa, flat screen, the usual mini bar (stocked with drinks at 'Coles prices') and modern décor. The bathroom was clean...

We booked an overnight bed and breakfast stay through Wotif, and were most impressed. Having read earlier reviews, I can say without hesitation that this place must have changed enormously. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, the room spotless (and very tastefully furnished, with 2 comfortable armchairs, a proper table and table decoration ) . We had a continental...
