I stayed here for 1 night and I must say that in all my stays at motels and even hotels around Aus (I travel regularly for work, working for a SME, my company can only put me up at motels and mid-priced hotels), the hospitality that the motel owners provide is wonderful. I was greeted by the friendliest voice over... More

Left booking accommodation to the last minute so prices of all accom was a little inflated due to demand. Value aside; nice place just off the highway. Rooms clean & beds comfy, slept really well. Room was a disabled unit so bathroom set up was not ideal however if you are in a wheelie or a walker it would be... More

The place was ok, it was pretty much what you would expect from a motel. The hotel staff were absolutely lovely, very kind and helpful. The room was not to bad for a quick stop over however the quilt covers just made the room look a little cheap. The room size was good and great for two friends who don't... More

Very clean and well maintained. Can't speak highly enough of the owner's attitude and helpfulness. Waited up for me as I was going to be late even though he'd left the room unlocked. Very friendly place.

This recently-renovated motel was great value for money for a nights stop-over. Situation only one street back from the highway with new tiles in the bathroom, fresh paint, and new carpet, along with Foxtel movies and sports channels. The only down-side was the air conditioner unit appeared to have missed out on the update - it was an old 'window... More

Good large room for 3 blokes on a road trip with convenient access to the main road but pretty basic. Expect no bells or whistles and a really basic construction with poor finishes. The shower was the highlight.
