Only a one night stay but would have stayed longer. Beautifully refurbished with all mod cons, very clean and in a quiet location. Very comfortable beds and a quality modern ensuite. A generous breakfast to start the next day. Thoroughly recommended

We stayed overnight here. The staff were helpful especially as we were arriving late. Room was small but clean and well presented. The only issue we had was we were traveling in a 4wd that was raised a little and had our recovery equipment on the roof racks. Unfortunately the entrance to the motel parking was through a LOW awning... More

This is a single storey motel on a quiet location which has undergone a refurb to take on a Bali theme. The rooms are clean and the layout of the rooms plus additions like window shutters make it a place I'd be very happy to take my wife. Well done on such good value and aesthetics.

Upon arrival you are greeted by a refreshing outdoor Balinese setting, which is undercover near the lovely tropical pool. The rooms were clean and tidy, and the beds were comfortable. The kids loved searching for the white cat; Bianca. The rooms had a choice of fresh air or air conditioning. With some of the occasional road noise, late arrivals or... More

My husband and I stayed at this beautifully refurbished motel for one night during a road trip from Brisbane. I think the owner has utilized the services of an interior decorator when doing the refurbishment as our room looked like something out of the pages of Home Beautiful or similar! However, the room didn't just look great but was very... More

Lovely atmosphere, greeted with room lights on & a lovely smelling room, very modern, clean, comfortable & inviting. Cot was made up with linen very well done. Nice themed sitting area & pool. Only wish our stay was longer then a stop over. Was very shocked at the quality & size for the price.

We recently stayed in a family room for 1 night (2 adults, 3 kids). I was surprised how modern & tastefully the room was decorated and also impressed with the large bathroom and well equipped kitchenette (great to have your own plates and cutlery for eating take away late on arrival!). We ordered a hot breaky which didn't disappoint. We... More

We were passing through so booked this hotel as a stopover. Check in was brisk, but no friendly chat or information given, the key was handed over and that was it. The rooms are clean and have everything you need for a stopover whilst on your travels. The breakfast was extra and delivered to your room. You have to order... More
