    We stayed two nights last week during a very cold week and our room was very warm and the bed comfortable, with an electric blanket. Megan was very helpful and we received a warm welcome. This motel stands out in that, while it is an older motel, our room, including bathroom, was scrupulously clean and well maintained. Would definitely stay... More

    Had a pleasant evening at this hotel, considering the management had just moved in all worked well and they made us feel very welcome. No restaurant at this location but loads to choose from around the town within walking distance including a great Aussie pub

    You're not really treated as a customer, you're treated like family. Wonderfully warm reception after a long day on the road. Suggestions for dinner, shown personally to our room. The room was very clean and comfortable with everything you need. Extremely quiet location made for an excellent sleep.

    Very well located, easy walk to shops, restaurant and points of interest - though, still a nice quiet location. Friendly and helpful staff. Large, clean, bright, well appointed rooms. Large, very comfortable bed. Good Air Con. Free, fast, Wifi. Room even had a toaster! Parking was allocated, by room number, and undercover.
