This motel is very handy to Newcastle airport. It is on the outskirts of the township and therefore very quiet. You will need to drive a short distance for your evening meal. Everything at the motel was scrupulously clean. We stayed in the standard room, where heating was just adequate. I thought it a tad overpriced ($140) for mid winter... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review for our motel. It is always exciting to get one. The room attendants work above and beyond to maintain the 'just cleaned' feel to the rooms. We are sorry you didn't get to work the air conditioner to your satisfaction......Garry would have been more than happy to sort... More

We stayed over night on our way south. Our room was very spacious,clean and comfortable. The staff were outstanding, making us feel very welcome, with a great local knowledge. Breakfast was well laid out and user friendly. The pool area was lovely, even if it was too cold to try the water. (We were there in July). Would definitely stay... More

Thank you for such a wonderful review!!! I will print this out and put it in the girls folders this morning so they get the same buzz I got when I read it.

A surprisingly comfortable stop off on the long drive south from FNQ. Although this is an older hotel, it has been recently refreshed and is far enough back off the road to be refreshingly quiet, providing a good nights rest. The management was friendly and VERY obliging, even offering a choice of four milks including a lactose free alternative. Free... More

Thank you so much for your lovely review. The motel owners don't advertise their motels relying on word of mouth as the best form of advertisement, so your one will certainly help to get the 'word' out there. The 'funky' art is fantastic, brightening the rooms and giving the rooms a modern, fresh and new feel to them. The tourist... More

This motel had a really comfortable bed which for us is the most important feature of a motel. this one was very very good and comfortable.
