This is our 5th time staying at this motel in the past two years, it's a half way point for us travelling home from Brisbane. The motel grounds are always well kept, it has a great pool, friendly managers and the room accommodation is clean and well stocked with plates, cutlery and cooking facilities. Will be staying again in the... More

Great studio apartments! I don't normally bother writing reviews but the couple running this motel deserve a rave. The rooms, grounds, food and amenities are all great but it's the couple taking care of you that make this exceptional, they really go above and beyond. Thanks heaps - we will be back.

We stayed for the roma races. The rooms were nice and the pool was just what was needed after a day in the sun. Tracey was an amazing host going above and beyond to make our stay more enjoyable and to accommodate our needs. Thank you so much guys for everthing, easily the best stay in a motel ever!!!

Decent room and facilities. Undercover parking right outside room. Beware if the owners recommend the Bistro at the Bowls club as they appear to do. The food was truly awful! My wife's Barramundi was over cooked and resembled a piece of shoe leather. My Seafood basket was only a little better.

I must say we was pleasantly surprised at the standard of this Motel. We booked 2 rooms next to each other through Wotif When we checked-in they were quick and efficient and the rooms come with the standard items you would expect to have. The most important thing to us is the cleanliness of the rooms and they were excellent.... More

We ended a very long days travel here and the staff were extremely helpful with our late check-in. This is a clean and comfortable hotel on the highway. Yes, right on the highway but I couldn't hear any trucks or road noise at all. Great night sleep. Highly recommended.

Stayed overnight on 25/09/15 on the way to Longreach . This was the perfect place to break the trip as it is about halfway. We got delayed and had to ring ahead but it was no problems for Tracey who greeted us just before 9pm with a cheerful friendly smile and really made us feel welcome. The room we had... More

I was greeted at reception by a very efficient charming lady who graciously offered me a studio room instead of a standard motel one due to reasons that didn't affect me at the same price . Studio room was well appointed and quiet with attractive furnishings , good coffee sachets and complimentary toiletries . Good size undercover park. A far... More

"juliewho89" says it all: good clean rooms undercover car parking right at door. Walking distance to Bowling Club (with bistro). We stayed for two nights separated by a week, and both rooms were similar. Wifi was free with a limited download. When we stayed, the motel was in the process of changeover to new management. Very friendly service.
