I arrived very late due to rental car issues and felt ashamed for being so late, but Imre welcomed me and made me feel right at ease. He also provided me useful info about Maryborough which I happily made use of the next day. Cleanest motel I EVER stayed at! And friendliest owners/staff I have ever seen at any accomodation.

Just stayed here one night while driving up the coast. Stayed here once before and had great service and nice refurbished rooms. Very clean - bathrooms are nice and new. Have only dealt with Aimee and he is always helpful and pleasant to deal with. Definitely recommend as the best place to stay in the area!

Lovely older style Motel with personalised service. Modern bathroom, exceptional presentation, very clean, lots of little extras. Walk to anywhere in town in 15-20 mins. Directly across from Maryborough Base Hospital.

This motel we can highly recommend. We have never been at such a clean place in Australia before. The room is spacious and nicely decorated with flowers and there are also many hanging flower baskets in front of the motel doors which look so lovely and give you the feeling of being at home. Rita is a very friendly person!

A very nice motel with room and bathroom large and exceptionally clean one of the nicest I have stayed in in 30 years of travel. I arrived to late for diner but if the breakfast is anything to go by it would have been good, the menu for diner was extensive and reasonably priced. Breakfast was great for presentation, quality...

I was surprised to see the suite, Very clean and modern. For the price, I wasn't expecting something so modern and refreshing. Although the location is A slight bit distant, Very easy to find when coming off the highway. Great place, Owners are friendly. Will be staying there again next visit.

This motel is always exceptionally clean and presented very well. Hosts are very helpful and obliging. It is quiet and close to most amenities. The tiny flat screen TVs can be a problem to view. Otherwise fine - would recommend. Far better value than a couple of the overpriced, overrated motels down the road.

This motel is quiet and very friendly, Imre even offered to help with our bags at 9pm and we are both strong and healthy! The rooms are big with a neat little kithchenette which is awesome for making you own coffee etc. Very nice modern bathroom, good firm bed and clean linen. Would definitely stay again and would recommend this... More
