We stayed at the motel for two nights during the famous Childers Festival. The rooms were clean and very well presented and the beds were quite comfortable. The managers Sarah and Jamal were super friendly and efficient and quickly corrected a problem with the bookings left by the previous managers. Very well located in the heart of town , but... More

Was great to stay here and meet the new managers- Sarah and Jamal- who are transforming the former Palace Hotel into a welcoming, stylish mid range and traveller-friendly hotel/cafe aptly named the Oasis. I'll write another review under that name. The Palace / Oasis building is spacious and modern with off street parking at the rear, and foot access from... More

New owner and new name (oasis motel) since may 2015. It's a great place, rooms are clean and comfy, bathrooms are clean, there is a pool, kitchen, tv rooms and cool resting area. It's also quite cheap ($20 a night in a 3 beds room) and The owner is a really cool and helpful dude. Highly recommended.

A window that doesn't open, a bed that had us both aching the next morning, a security light directly outside the window that went on and off all night, and two hard flat pillows. For $120 per night? This place is awful...would never stay again. (room 24)

I Stayed here last week. The staff were very friendly and the room was clean and tidy. There is onsite parking available and a restaurant at the motel. Located centrally and an easy walk anywhere. Would stay here again. The locals are friendly and a good place to stop for a couple of days.

This place can be missed easily if I hadn't read the reviews and also seen the pic that it was next to subway. Room was basic but enough for an overnight stay. Location is near shops/restaurants etc which you only need to walk to. We ate at the Vietnamese shop just a few shops from accommodation. Food was delicious but... More

Good location off the Main Street . Room is basic but has everything needed and is clean. Bed was comfortable but pillows were the very firm kind. Reception staff have extras like hair dryers if you ask.

A mixture of hotch potch old and new, and so badly in need of a makeover, one way or the other. However, it is ideally located right in the centre of town. Park in the main street to check in then drive around to the rear entrance to park your vehicle for your stay. Friendly reception lady, clean rooms but... More
