As far as motels are concerned this establishment would be near the top. Spacious, clean, quiet and well-appointed. All rooms are reasonably priced and parking is undercover. A swimming pool and laundry are available for guests. A restaurant is available for guests. Owner and staff very welcoming. Would stay again and highly recommended.

My wife and I stayed 2 nights and were delighted with the experience. The restaurant was as good as any I've experienced and the staff were very good. I hope they never lose the chef as I mean it when I say it was GOOD. I do think the wine list is in need of an urgent upgrade though. The... More

After staying at Explorers in Roma Q. we expected a similar accommodation experience, not to be. Pool area and surrounds were pleasant. Rooms spacious. The menu was limited and prices acceptable. Service could have been more professional

The room opened onto the pool area courtyard, with lovely grassed areas and gardens. Beds were super comfy, especially the pillows! Free Wi-Fi was a bonus. It was great to get such a nice property for a... More

Staff are friendly and helpful. Restaurant is delicious, the rooms are clean, executive room is very spacious and slept like a baby because I was up the back and it was so quiet. Parking is easy and only a short walking distance to enjoy the botanical gardens. I will definitely be coming back!

Big room, clean and tidy. Kids even got their own room and TV! Good value compared to other motel rooms. Comfy beds. Close to shopping centre. Would recommend if you need a motel room for a relaxing stay.

Thank you for your review of our property. The family rooms are unique having that interconnecting room. Gives families a little more space and it means the adults can have the TV going at night without keeping the children awake. They are very popular rooms - shame we don't have more!! More
