Had an overnight stay here. This is our 3rd visit to this motel. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. Our room was large, well decorated and very clean and overlooked the golf course. So peaceful. We thought the traffic would worry us but didn't hear anything. We had the full breakfast in the restaurant the next morning which was... More

Just an overnight visit on the way through the area on holiday. The staff are pleasant and the rooms are clean, but if you get a room on the highway (are there others?) it's quite noisy. In addition the noise from the adjoining units is quite obvious. They charge $12 for 12 hours of WiFi which in my experience is... More

Today is the third day I have been sick due to food poisoning from a chicken Caesar salad I got at the restaurant here. I'm very disappointed as it ruined my weekend away. Now I didn't actually stay in the rooms there but this is the only site I could find to write a review, I just wanted to warn... More

Stayed here for two nights whilst in Berri on a work trip, rooms are very clean and comfortable, tavern across the Golf Course is excellent and staff and owner/managers are very pleasant and helpful. Great spot for overnight stop, work stop or holiday. Enjoyed it. Would recomend it to anyone travelling through Berri who needs somewhere to stay.

Had to head to Berri for a funeral so the mood wasn't great. have stayed at this facility many years ago, and it was nice to see that it is still a clean & comfortable place for both the businessman & for a holiday. Even though the decor is getting a bit dated, the rooms are very clean and comfortable,... More

Just spent the night. Short walk through the golf course to 'The Tavern'. Good price for the room with cooked breakfast included. Very nice spread. Great hospitality with friendly staff. Will be back and will recommend to friends and family.

Stayed here for 2 nights recently and had a most enjoyable time. The rooms were clean and tidy and had a nice view from the sliding doors overlooking the golf course with seating outside to relax. My daughter was most impressed with the pool and although it stated it was heated it was rather cold. The brochure in the room... More
