Enjoyed our stay at the Ridge in this small motel. Great location and it was very quiet. Kay has a great personality and is very helpful. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and we particularly enjoyed being able to have more than one cup of tea each from the complimentary tea and coffee included. Will definitely be staying there... More

Centrally located country Motel. Rooms are a bit old fashioned in décor but very clean and our double had more than the basics because it had a kichenette with microwave & toaster. Kay made us feel very welcome. We went around the corner to the IGA for nibbles and ate at the local RSL. Great value for money.

The room was clean, it included everything you would need and expect. The owner, Kay, was very nice. BBQ facilities and extra towels for the bore baths were a great bonus. Great location. Can't complain.

The rooms are small but clean and well appointed, with comfortable beds. The decor is light which helps make the rooms feel larger than they really are. The price is modest and represents excellent value for money. Highly recommended.

Absolutely loved staying here! we stayed to see my mums grave who was buried at the ridge many moons ago. Kay was so warm and welcoming and filled me in on local history since i had been away for soooo long. This is the only place I would stay again!

Kaye who runs the Motel is a genuinely pleasant lady. Rooms are a reasonable size with a small kitchen annexe. Bedding is comfortable and aircon. quite. Wifi works well and no extra charge. Room was exceptionally clean. Fantastic hot shower.

An older style motel with a good value for money comfort. The lady running the motel just makes you feel happier than when you walked in. A good room to stay in for a stop over which is what we were hoping for. Give it a go.

We were very pleasantly surprised when we opened our door to this little motel. Couldn't ask for anything better. Very clean, well equipped kitchen & good bathroom facilities. Host & staff were great. Re-serviced & topped up daily if need be. Would recommend to anyone.

An immaculate room, run by a lovely lady, Kay. It is an older style motel but had a small kitchen, a table and chairs and everything we needed for a comfortable stay. So often in budget motels, you find there is only one chair and you have to take turns, but we also had a small table and chairs outside... More
