Room was extremely clean and tidy and well equipped, cutlery & crockery a real bonus. Bed was very comfortable. Nothing was ever too much for trouble for Michael or Kylie, excellent hosts. Will stay here again. Dan Murphy & Westtower Tavern right next door and the best hot & cold seafood 2 doors away

What a lovely couple to deal with from booking this room 6 months ago to staying in December they were very customer focused and inviting. First impression was lovely hotel, the room was plenty big enough for what we needed. Could not hear traffic or neighbouring rooms.. easy walk to the ravern for a lovely meal and the pool looked...

Rooms are very clean with all the basics amenities to make a one night stay very comfortable. If I was to stay more than one night I am sure that it would be the same. Well maintained rooms and very affordable. Everything thing is close so the location is fine.

I have stayed at this hotel twice, and both times were comfortable and cozy. I mixed up my booking last time, and rather than the hotel profiting off my error (which i would have never found out about), they spoke to me and informed me of it, which saved my money. Definitely recomend, and will be back.

Good clean budget motel. Nice owners provide good service. Rooms are satisfactory but nothing special. Rates are reasonable and nice pool out front. Close to road so can get a bit noisy, but I would stay here again.

I can certainly recommend this motel. It's clean and comfortable and the proprietor Michael and his wife are very attentive. My car had broken down and I spent 2 nights there before the auto electrician opened on Monday. Michael who is also a mechanic loaned me a battery charger and assisted me with my problem, my thanks to you both.

Travelling as 2 couples, we took a family room at Chaparral for an overnight stay on our way home to Queensland. It's not flash but it was clean, the 2 double beds (a difficult combination to find) comfy, management was friendly and very helpful with information about places to eat at nearby and it had all we needed for the...

Stayed here for 5 nights - wish I could have stayed longer! I booked a standard queen room and it was excellent. Good size, plenty of hanging and drawer space in the wardrobe, generous sized television, microwave, toaster, tea & coffee, and enough cutlery and crockery to cook and eat your own meals. Good sized bathroom, nice hot shower with... More

I've stayed her a few times, the owners Kylie and Michael are always friendly and can't do enough to make you feel comfortable. The rooms are high speck, fully renovated and always clean. Very reasonably priced and would recommend anyone to stay here.

You can't go wrong with value for money at this place. It is an older building but has modern features including pay TV, aircon etc. It's clean, comfortable and the staff are extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming. You do get some morning traffic noise an if you're staying upstairs practice your parking as the parking spots are very tight. It's... More
