    This is a great little motel. The manager Robin was probably the most welcoming and accommodating host we've EVER experienced in all our years of travel. He really went out of his way to help us out on several occasions during our recent 3-night stay....More

    Stayed here prior to walking the Kepler track. The place is in a bit of a time warp with seventies decor which would be fine if it was actually attempting to be kitsch (see photo) - Not good value for money.
