Stayed at John Bright Motor Inn for two nights from Wednesday - Friday in late August/early May. Motel close to city centre, the room was very clean, and had everything you needed to make your stay both comfortable and enjoyable. Two problems, it advertises free Wi-Fi but after 7.30pm there appeared to be problems with Wi-Fi. After advising management of... More

With a planned visit for 5 adults midweek last week we booked 2 rooms, one that had been renovated and an unrenovated family room. Yes the unrenovated room is dated, but CLEAN. The TV in the second bedroom was appreciated, and the beds comfortable. Located very close to the centre of town, the proprietors have plans to renovate the whole... More

The location is good, but the price is above what you get. In the afternoon there was a group of guys drinking at the parking lot making a lot of noise, it was not late but anyway the managers should asked them to quiet a bit. Also when asking for a place to have dinner the guy at the front... More

Motel is in a perfect position, able to walk to all restaurants in town. The owner told us, when we checked in, that we paid $44 too much by booking on Wotif rather than direct with him. The peanuts and the orange juice in the bar fridge were past their use by date. The decor is dated, the velvet curtains... More

Spent one night here on our camping/road trip. Very comfortable, recently refurbished room. Major bonus since we had been camping with no facilities, was the laundry next to our room, with a free washing machine. It enabled us to leave next morning with totally clean clothing.

We had a balcony room that overlooked the festival we were attending. Walking distance from all shops and restaurants, free wi-fi and DVD hire. Staff were very kind and helpful. Very quiet which surprised us as the Inn was booked out that night.

My room had recently been refurbished, I think the whole motel may have been. It was very comfortable and well set out with plenty of storage if staying a few days. The air-conditioning (in my case, the cooler) worked well, the bed was comfy as were the reading/relaxing chairs. There are various breakfast options and very usefully for someone leaving... More

Really enjoyed our stay here in January. We had the family room which was nice but could do with refurbishment. We felt comfortable and enjoyed the pool area, which had some shade over the pool late in the afternoon. Great location, close to woolworths and IGA and even closer was the pub. Will come back next year.
