Friendly manager. The family room was spacious and overlooked the small swimming pool. The room is in need of an update. Beds comfortable. Wifi is accessible for one device only and you get the password from reception. Location is on the main road into town but we had to get in the car to go into town.

As we were driving from Cairns and were arriving after reception closed the staff made arrangements for us to get the key for us to put our head down for the night....room was very clean and they even put a small milk in the minibar for us to have tea/coffee on our arrival...highly recommended

We arrived Friday nite around 8.45pm, key was left under door mat. First thing we encountered was toilet roll with around 6 sheets left on roll with a new roll sitting on top! Next morning noticed a hole had been "punched" on bathroom door & was covered with a bit of particle board. Grout in shower cubicle was cracking. We... More

What a shame you had a negative experience. We had new relief managers on for the weekend you stayed and they may of been a little overwhelmed with it all. The majority of our reviews are good to great and there will always be someone who has a negative experience. The old saying is, "you can't please everyone." We sincerely... More

We were in the area on business for 5 nights. We had an executive room providing a bedroom, bathroom, small Lounge & kitchenette. We had a medium fridge, two TVs with Foxtel. Very comfortable bed, hot full pressure shower & very quiet. Situated a little out of town but with our hire car only a few minutes from anywhere. Traditional... More

Hi Caz B Thankyou for your review. The excutive room is extremely quiet and a great size for a motel room when you are staying a few nights. Cleanliness is the top of our priorities when we have those rare spare few hours. Thanks Again Trudy Miller More

Whilst the rooms in this motel are very basic and in most instances - small, they are comfortable, adequate and most importantly - clean! The shower is HOT and you cannot fault the water pressure and the beds were extremely comfortable, which is great after a long days travelling. For an over-nighter it's more than fine.

My wife and I stayed here for the first time on Saturday night 11 May 13. We were greeted pleasantly by the very friendly manager, and offered an upgrade to a queen suite with separate lounge. A nice touch, which was appreciated. Given the outside highway, our room was very quiet and comfortable. The only complaints were the very tight... More

I stayed here recently while visiting friends in Maryborough. It is entirely what you would expect from a country town motel. The room is adequate, but not generous. The decor is clean and tidy, but not glamorous. I found the bed a little too soft, but that may just be preference. On arrival, I was checked in quickly, and the... More

Hi Chris B I am glad your experience was pleasant. Your room was the standard room and is an older style room however extremely clean and comfortable.

Thankyou for leaving feedback for our motel. It was a challenging time with our 3rd flood in 3 years. I am so pleased you enjoyed your "forced" stay. Rain, hail or shine we give the best experience to our guests we can. All the best. Trudy Miller More

We stopped there for 1 night on our way to Brisbane. Very spacious room with more than adequate amenities. A Queen size bed and a single. We both had an excellent sleep on very comfortable mattresses. Rooms spotlessly clean. Ample free parking directly outside made moving luggage easy. We would stay here again.
