The man who checked us in was not really friendly. Not rude either, but you're working in hospitality so friendliness is important. We checked in early and had room nr 1. Its just next to reception. The room was clean, but dated. Bed was firm but good. No views. Bathroom dated but clean and spacious. I loved the shaving cream!...

Comfortable, clean and safe! The room had generous sized beds with a lovely bathroom. The availability of free WiFi was an added bonus! Perfect for a stopover whilst travelling! Only issue was the stair but we had loads of luggage and it was a last minute booking! Overall good accommodation!

Thank you for your kind words. Those rooms are very nice and we are very proud of them. The previous owners who planned them put a lot of thought into their design. We hope that you come back again and stay with us. It is always nice to have guests who appreciate what we do for them. The Owners

We stayed overnight in this motel on our way from the NSW Central Coast to Brisbane. Whilst the rooms were clean and provided all we required for an overnight stay, it is not a motel that I would consider staying in for more than one night. The motel itself has, apparently, recently been renovated; however, it maintains much of its...

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. However, we cannot agree with your comments. Most of our guests love our Motel and tell us how good our rooms are compared to other Motels. They like the patios and find them useful. We have many guests who have extended stays and a large percentage of company reps and other guests...

Stayed 2 nights one week apart. Rooms were small, not very well equipped (eg. 1 plate 1 knife 1 fork no dessertspoon or bowl) and they were in a draw in a plastic bin at floor level right next to door. Carpet stained. Bathroom outdated and you need a neck like a giraffe to brush your teeth over the hand...

We were in room10 at far end of the building so free wifi did not reach us. But the room is nice. There are hooks for keys, rail for tea towel, kitchen sink plates,bowls etc for one to enjoy microwave/ take away meals. Refrigerator is good size.

We found this lovely motel after battling heaps of roadworks heading south from Gold Coast to Canberra. Thus made me very tired at such a slow pace of driving at 80km p/h, so decided to pull up at Port Macquarie where we stumbled across this lovely motel. It ticked all the boxes for our needs. Very clean inside and out,...

Great value motel with comfortable bedding. My room was clean and well equipped. Cute private courtyard off the room. Even though the motel is on a busy road the rooms are configured to ensure minimal traffic noise. I will certainly stay again.

Paid $125 on lastminute.com We stayed here to break up the journey from Gold Coast back to Sydney. Clean, comfortable and close to amenities. We had a double bed and single bed for my son. It would not be my preference for a holiday stay but would definitely use again for overnight stop.
