We have just spent 3 nights at this motel. We were not very happy to say the least. Firstly, it was the most expensive of the motels that we have stayed in during our travels round Australia. We had paid $99 for the Ramada 4 star resort in Port Douglas and at this motel we paid $112 per night for a very tiny room. No carpet, no toiletries, poorly fitted with ancient chipboard wardrobe, etc. The fridge was rusty - see photos. The air con unit was noisy and could not be left on at night. It was really no more than a backpackers place. On our third night we got about 3 hours sleep due to a party of 'minors' being booked in and having a party until almost 3 am. We had a 650 km drive the following day and needed our sleep. I did complain the following day and was given a small refund. The people who run the motel are lovely but if they want to charge those prices they need to up their game. They were very helpful in booking tours, giving directions, etc. However, I would not recommend this place if you want some comfort and a quiet night.
