I had a good experience here, having stayed for four nights. My unit was quiet and very clean, with modern furnishings and a new shower. The doors on two of the kitchen cupboards didn't close properly—but otherwise everything, including the free Wi-Fi, was excellent. I was surprised to read of others' bad experiences here.

I have been staying in the abbey lodge motel for the past 9 nights. On first impressions the room was OK nothing really to complain about a bit out dated though. But...The radiator in the room doesn't work had to move the little fan heater around the unit to keep it warm. Had to ask for house keeping to change... More

If you are under budget, this place will do the job. We paid AUD130/night, stayed overnight. The room was spacious. However, our room was old and door seemed fragile... would not recommend unless you are on tight budget.

A family apartment clean and comfortable. The kitchen has stove, microwave, fridge and all you need for a quick breakfast. In the bathroom we don't find a hair dryer but the receptionist give us immediately one. The bedroom is warm and cozy.

We stayed for one night only, relatively cheap so expected it not to be 5 star. Front door would not lock when we were leaving to go out for dinner. Luckily lady from the office was walking past and when we explained the problem she advised to turn the door handle left at the same time as pushing the button... More

This motel is run down. The carpets are all disgustingly stained. The bathroom not only smells musty but all the skirtings are mouldy and black. The paint is flaking off the walls. One of the cleaning girls told us she was embarrassed for the guests. A chair at the table collapsed under me and whilst not hurt ended up on... More

The rooms are decent. No housekeeping. Stayed for 2 nights, came back after a day of sight seeing, the beds weren't made, only got new towels. No the usual bikkies you usually get from motels. Booked for 5 people, paid the 5th person, didn't get extra bed, like the other motels we stayed in during this trip. 5th person had... More

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights including a weekend. The room was comfortable and we were given an extra heater for the room which was great. Unfortunately the walls are thin and we could hear the blaring tv and music of the neighbours room and their door opening and shutting. This may not seem unreasonable but we... More
