We stayed here just prior to Easter on our way to Canberra. We arrived around 7.30pm and although late were offered dinner at the in house restaurant - a lovely treat after a long slow drive from Brisbane. The menu selection was very pleasant and the wines very reasonablly priced. Our room was located on the first floor with its on verandah which overlooked the garden terrace. The room was very comfortable - furnished with period furniture from last century. Good sized bathroom stacked with lots of "goodies". Originally a boarding school in the early 1900's the history is very apparent and adds to the atmosphere.
My only complaint was that a couple of people were sitting down in the garden area ( a pretty spot) having eaten earlier and continued to talk for sometime afterward and their voices carried into our room. Once they had the retired the motel was very quiet and the bed comfortable. We were able to have an early morning checkout which enabled us to be on the road in good time. Overall a very pleasant experience - staff were pleasant and off street parking was available. Would recommend this venue to anyone who wants a taste of the old world charm at a very affordable price.
