There were 5 other motels on the same street plus about 5 more very close. Check in was very easy and made much easier by Alan who was very friendly and...

Gary could not have been more courteous and helpful. Our room was sparkling clean and the shower was the best.... We found the bed very comfortable and everything was good including the fresh milk on arrival. Having a microwave was handy. Although on the main road - the noise levels were acceptable.

Stayed overnight on our trip from Queensland back to Sydney. Very clean and comfortable. Host was friendly and the room was adequately equipped, although a bit more cutlery and some plates would have been useful.

This is now on our shortlist of stops when we go driving from Brisbane to Sydney. We stayed at Easter in the Executive room. Spacious and clean, with complimentary bottled water and milk in the fridge.
