Stopped one night and would not choose to stay here again. The room was very outdated & basic for the price charged. No hand soap & beds & settee need to be upgraded in the room we had, I don't know what the other rooms were like. The man at the front desk was helpful enough service wise but you... More

I will never stay at this place again. I will warn all people in my company to never stay here again. While the decor is very old and outdated, the bed hard, and the rooms are right next to train tracks so throughout the night all you hear are the trains. You also have transit people who leave early in... More

Although the staff were very helpful, lovely actually, we would not stay here again. One of the reasons we chose this particular motel is because they had a restaurant, but after we checked in we were told the restaurant is not open because they didn't have enough guests. We had to then drive into Bordertown to find somewhere for dinner.... More

Service: Very good, gentleman at the reception was very no mess no fuss, check in and out very easy! Room: Good size and clean! Out dated in style, but all very good, clean, everything working and really no reason to complain! Parking: No problems there, parking right outside your room. Noise: We had no problems, slept through the night, didn’t... More

Really nice People run this Motel. Although the rooms are a little dated they're clean, comfortable and far enough from the road for us not to suffer at all from Road Noise. I suspect the restaurant was contracted out to somebody other than the Owners of the Motel but the food was great, even though a little slow in arriving... More

The people that run this motel are very nice. Please stay there so they can earn a dollar and update. The 70's tile, bessar brick, strange swing doors and chipboard should all go. You are in the middle of beautiful Australia and they are employing local people. I had good nights sleep so I was happy.

The staff were very friendly and the room was simple in layout. The hand basin was in the bedroom area which was different with the toilet and shower separate. The shower water pressure was great but did have an slight chlorine like smell, perhaps it's needed? For a stopover between adelaide and melbourne the accomodation is good and clean. The... More

The motel was fine. The rooms at the back were well away from the road and weren't affected by the noise. The room was clean although a bit outdated. We tend to want to have fresh air in the room without using air condition but this was a little difficult as windows opened at the top of the door and... More

At first we thought the 60's style room was quite quaint and nostalgic. Until we found that there was no hand soap - only a liquid multipurpose dispenser on the shower wall. No wash cloths. No light above the sink in a dark alcove. The air conditioner roared all night and frankly, I wonder if the the pillows have been... More

Rooms are serviced each day, clean towels waiting on your bed.The rooms near the rear... More
