We didn't expect much for quick one night stop on our way up the coast but were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived. Anne was extremely friendly and accommodating, the rooms for a family of 4 and 5 were excellent with the 2 adjoining rooms giving us plenty of space. The location is great with a pub serving the best... More

The walls were slightly thin - I could hear next door's TV, although not annoyingly so - but the good thing is that its not the... More

We arrived 7:00pm Friday, on our way to Brisbane. Our room was very clean and well decorated. Very comfortable bed and pillows. Bathrooms still a little outdated, however clean and our shower had great pressure and the temperature was fine. Nothing really could be faulted. The hosts were friendly and helpful. Will definitely return. Only thing I noticed was that... More

The positives: the friendly & accommodatiing hosts and the bed is definitely comfortable & pillows are excellent. The negatives: the rooms seem to have paper thin walls - I could hear the occupant in the next... More

A great place to "hang your hat". Has been recently renovated and looks great. Very comfortable (new) beds. Hot, freshly cooked breakfast. Manager was extremely helpful. Would definitely recommend (and stay again).

Stayed here again on a work trip and the rooms have been refurbished. I stay here 4 times a year and the rooms were great before but even better now(if that's possible). Ann's warm, friendly and always obliging service remains at a high as per usual. This place is seriously above its rating and with the new refurbishments, its definitely... More

I stayed in the disabled access room at this motel for 2 nights and it was very comfortable. The bed was comfortable and the pillows were good...not too old and flat! In fact, they were quite supportive. In the end, I had to leave early in the morning so I paid my account on the afternoon prior to leaving. I... More
