This was a great motel in which to stay. Friendly, helpful staff and initial impressions about the cleanliness of the room were very pleasing. Everything required for a one night stay was well provided. As it had been a hot day and a long drive up I was glad of the opportunity to use the swimming pool. The motel itself... More

Great little location! Close to major shops, food places, petrol & freeway. Room was a big enough space for 2 of us, good little kitchenette and hot plates. Lovely hosts and helped with everything we needed. Nice pool area even though it was too cold to swim. Could do with a better couch, but was comfortable enough.

As a frequent traveler, I don't like to have a lot of "issues" arising at places I stay. And there were a number here. First off, there's no aircon at this hotel, so I turned on the ceiling fan. It was noisy, so I asked for another fan, and one was brought in immediately. Fair enough. Next, some guests and... More
