On my latest stay at Academy the service was exceptional as it always is, the room was comfortable and quiet and the overall experience was very good. The motel is clean and tidy and centrally located on the main road heading into the CBD. Rooms have kitchens which gives them a more homely feel particularly when you travel a lot.

Looks like an ordinary Motel! Great size room, spotless bath room etc. Lovely bed, sheets and pillows. Excellent breakfast served in room, piping hot and great value for money with proper coffee!! Highways very close, so leave the windows closed and you cannot hear a thing!

Nice clean and modern units. The 2 bedroom unit we stayed in had a very nice bathroom that looked like it was recently modernised. The unit was presented very well with nice towels and accessories. Competitively priced. Would recommend it highly.

The owners Glenys and Kevin are lovely hosts and very helpful. The motel is very clean and tidy, and my room was easy to heat up in the cold weather. There are lots of shops and places to eat nearby, including a large supermarket. I got 10GB of free wifi, which was plenty for me, and the signal was really... More

Swimming pool and BBQ facilities are available. A range of room layouts offer good facilities for my business travel alone and for return visits for leisure. Staff are fantastic and really... More

This is a great Motor Inn quite close to the main highways and CBD. Rooms are spacious with all amenities you need for short to medium stays. (includes microwave, stove top and utensils). The hosts are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Probably the only draw-back is that it is right on a very busy intersection and even... More
