Michael & Kylie are your hosts, along with their two beautiful girls. They take pride in making you feel welcome from the first contact right through to your check-out. The bathroom was in immaculate condition with NO mould anywhere. Nearby there is a family friendly Tavern and within easy walk the local fish Co-op for nice fish'n'chips. We will definitely... More

My daughter and I enjoyed our stay at the Chaparral Motel. The room was fresh, extremely clean, quiet and safe. The shower was awesome and the bed really comfortable. The free wi-fi was a great bonus. Kylie and Michael are friendly and helpful managers. Will definitely stay again. Thank you!

Check in was great. The owners are lovely people, very friendly and helpful. Having under cover parking at your door is a real bonus that... More
