Electronic check-in, get own key by pressing password given by owner through phone call. It was good, no hassle. Lo and behold when we opened the door, it was unimaginable, so clean and immaculate. No complaint - we have found a near perfect place for the night. The bed linen and pillows were properly sheathed; there were also throw pillows... More

Booked at the very last minute for Easter and had low expectations but was very pleasantly surprised. Spacious room and an extra bed set up as requested. Good kitchen. Nice spot close to lovely walks.

We found it impersonal having to ring from a phone at a back door and didn't feel we should have to be telling what they should be looking after. During stay notified mgrs potato masher was useless, no dessertspoons, then clothes drier wouldn't work and we had 2 washer loads waiting to be dried. Service was fast and courteous. Other... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your accommodation. I'm sorry that your spoons were the wrong shape and neither of potato mashers were suitable for you. After taking your washing home to dry, fold and return to you that night, we discovered the problem with the dryer was a incorrect coin forced into the coin mechanism. This has... More

Easy to find,and just a few km outside Albany, the motel is clean and spacious. We found waking up to birds chattering really comfortable. It would have been a "plus" if the owner had made an appearance instead of conducting everything by phone. It all worked fine..but customer service? Anyway, we had a really good time in Albany and the... More

We had an oil filled radiator and once that had warmed up things improved. Bit of an odd arrangement in that a kitchen sink & crockery etc were kept... More
