My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights, for the same price as 1 at the more fancy hotel. Russell and his wife" sorry did not catch your name", were most accomodating host. Only motel where I have had my room serviced each day, could have had fresh towels if we had so required. Room was a motel room,... More

I stayed in this motel whilst staging a proposal for my now fiancé. It was great to have a brilliant young family willing to go the extra mile for us on our special weekend to make sure the surprise was kept and the moment was celebrated. I can’t speak highly enough of the quality of the staff, this is a... More

It served a purpose. I was satisfied with the value for what was given. Room was fine, all was rather dated, but it was good enough. For food I went through the town to a fast food place as I was too late for the decent restaurants.

Very friendly and helpful service desk. The rooms are not the biggest but for the price and location quite acceptable. Bathroom was clean and the shower was fantastic - hot and loads of pressure. Fridge, toaster, kettle, hair dryer, iron & board, TV, and reverse cycle aircon which all worked well. Bed was very warm and comfortable. Car parking in... More

I stayed here recently as others were booked out, and considering past reviews was unsure what to expect. Given I rate apples for apples, this is a comfortable clean and quiet 3 star motel. And it's cheaper than the tourist park cabins too. The staff were lovely and welcoming, and the room was better than similar rated motels. Yes it... More

We were hesitant when driving up to the motel as it looks tired and if I had read the reviews posted here, I would not have even bothered looking. Fortunately the lady at the Tanunda information centre told us to have a look, even though they are not listed on their main info guide. We asked to see the rooms... More

We needed accommodation for the week-end and this hotel was convenient for location. My husband stayed for two nights, I stayed for the last night. The room was small, there wasn't a lot of room for two people and we booked the standard room. The pillows were flat, bed creaked, I tripped over the cot stand shoved in the corner.... More

We stayed here for 1 night. It was adequate but old and tired. O k for just a 1 night sleep but rooms are small and dated. Was clean enough and quiet. Lady at reception was friendly and helpful. We would recommend it as it says it is a budget motel and one cannot expect 4 stars for the price.
