A very warm welcome from the management on arrival and the 2 night stay was comfortable in the 2 room unit. Very clean - no traffic noise - and readily accessible to the National Parks we were interested in visiting.

Room was a bit small and dated but very clean and very good value for money. James at reception was polite and helpful. Good location in centre of town. Some undercover parking. Room was quiet, but so was the whole town!!!

Excellent motel and very well priced. It isn't flash but is clean, quite & comfy. The staff are very helpful and welcoming. WC accessible room is well set up and works well if you turn the single bed around sideways as suggested by the management. They are happy to do this for you. Bathroom is very good, shower rose was... More

Great Motel, terrific owners, very helpful. We were touring on the bikes and as usual we stopped to stay the night with James. Even though we haven't been back for 8 month's he remembered us and looked after us very well even though we were drenched from a storm that passed through, recommended a good Thai restaurant as well.

Our stay was for only one night in June 2014. Easy check-in - just drove thru past the "reception" office - no fuss. Once car was parked under cover - right in front of our hotel room door - we got settled in and helped ourselves to cups of tea and coffee. Glasses and towels were provided for and teabags... More

We couldn't resist staying in a motel named after Peter Allen. James, the owner, was friendly and helpful. The room was roomy and spotlessly clean. Very comfortable bed, crispy good quality sheets. Best of all it had a real hair dryer, not those silly things that puff warm air. Although in the middle of town it was exceptionally quiet. Its... More

We received a friendly welcome and being able to park right outside one's room was a big plus. The room we had was dated, with bare brickwork, and not very large. However it was adequately fitted out and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was small but quite enough for our needs.

Rooms are clean and comfortable.Breakfast was good and served on time. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Motel is located on the main Road, but it was quiet at night. Location is good, few Restaurants are within walking distance.

Older style motel room but very clean and comfortable. Great location, short walk to Coles and some nice restaurants. Very quiet considering it is in the Main Street and no noise from people in other rooms. Linen and towels all smell lovely and clean. Couch could do with updating but no big deal. Great motel and owners very helpful and... More
