Tough day met by a very cheery and friendly receptionist. Nice clean comfortable room with great facilities as part of the complex. Top value for money, but please consider including cooked breakfasts, I didn't get a chance to eat until I got home to Brisbane around 8pm. I will be back.

The Motel was recommended by another frequent traveler so I took their advice and gave it a go. The rooms are large and spacious and clean - perhaps a little dated but absolutely fine. The restaurant and pub is easily accessible and the staff and food were fantastic.
