I must say since our last visit only a few months ago the place has been refurbished and painted. The Managers (Kim and Gary) are probably some of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They were always so friendly and willing to help. My husband and I had dinner there and the steak was cooked... More

Kim and Gary were excellent hosts, spending endless time and patience on solving any problems we had. The Inn is very convenient - on the Bruce Highway called Nebo Road at that spot - but despite the traffic, the rooms were very quiet. Walking by the lagoon in the gardens watching the water birds was a particular joy, but the... More

I stayed here one night on business and this was my seconc time here. I stayed in one of the refurbished rooms which was just lovely.

I am normally a bit wary about Trip Advisor reviews, but in this case they were spot on. Although the Motor Inn is right by the Bruce Highway where trucks power along all day and night, and although the layout and finishes of the rooms is kind of old fashioned, the Motor Inn is scrupulously CLEAN. Its comfortable with most... More
