The motel is situated in a pretty locality. The room we had was very small and there was no window so no natural light. The bathroom was very tight for space and the exhaust fan switch was hidden behind a sliding door= steamy bathroom. Smokers on the verandah meant that the non smoking rooms smelled of cigarette smoke

We stayed for one night - thankfully. I asked the manager about noise from outside and was assured noise was not a problem. Well we heard most of the passing traffic until we stuffed a spare blanket at the foot of the door to block out noise. But that didn't stop the drunks from the local pub finding the bench... More

Stayed for a week on a work trip. From the outside the place looks a little run down, the rooms are pretty much the same. However the rooms have everything you'd expect for the price; flat screen TV, aircon, fridge and microwave. The staff are very good, the food from the restaurant is good old fashioned home cooking and very... More

Dont waste your money. This is a old motel, in need of maintenance and serious updating. You cannot open the single window and room is dark. The shower needed a thorough clean with bleach. Bed sagged which resulted in little sleep over two nights. Might suit a couple on a budget or a group looking for cheap digs but at... More
