A family owned and operated motel with a twin room for $120 in high season. The motel is in a quiet location away from main roads but with a shopping centre nearby. Very clean with the largest shower area I've ever seen! Food was available with the evening special being a large bowl of slow-cooked beef with vegetables for just... More

My partner and I had to stay the night here due to unforeseen circumstances and this was the only place that allowed our dog at such short notice. This motel is a dive, it was dark and dirty. The bathroom especially was filthy, hair all over the shower including pubic hair on the bath mat. Very unhygienic place! Never would... More

When we checked out, we all overslept until half past 10, proceeded to run to the office and apologize. The woman was... More

If you are looking for a little bit of help outside of office hrs good luck. We had booked by an online business only to be told that we couldn't get in as no one was there. Then our keys wouldn't work and still no one around to help. Room is in need of a reno as very tired

Where do i start..... As part of our regular travelling job, my partner and I were sent on a 6 week stint to the NT. We needed to stay 2 and a half weeks and at last notice at the end of dry season, accommodation was rare, and even rarer in our travel allowance range! Whilst there were other places... More

This place is a gem. I stayed two nights. The 2nd night my son arrived and management offered to move me from a double to twin room (with queen bed). No fuss. Large rooms for the price, great showers. Great restaurant across the road at the sailing club...yes you can wear a singlet.
