Let's face it, you're not staying at the Grand Hyatt. If you're after luxury, this place isn't that. But what it is is certainly clean, pet friendly, central. It also had great water pressure in the shower, lots of hot water, tea and coffee in the room. The linen looked clean as did the mattress. This was a short weekend... More

The Red Carpet is under new management and all rooms are being renovated. We were lucky to obtain one of the completed rooms. There was plenty of room for the two of us with ample storage. The bathroom was lovely with a walk- in shower which is much better in my opinion than having to climb into a bath in... More

We found this place on lastminute.com and got a room because it was cheap for just an overnight stay. Bed was comfortable and room was nice enough. Didn't really speak to the staff but was greeting wasn't very warm. A place id stay again if I had to.

A plain motel, but clean and comfortable, everything we needed and free wifi . Only a kettle and cups , no plates or cutlery, breakfast in a mug! We did sleep well, but neighbours up early woke us, roads either side but no noisy traffic, handy as didn't have to exit on to main road,

It was kind of outdated but still pleasant and clean. Renovations were happening so I am assuming it is being updated one room at a time. No problems. Free wi-fi worked well and plenty of parking. Rear access to the hotel saved going on the main road.

This hotel is an old hotel that has been taken over by new Management that is upgrading the exterior and interior. We inspected the newly renovated units which are great with small kitchenettes and brand new bathrooms. The older hotel rooms are very clean and also on the way to getting repainted and refurbished. The bathrooms are older but for... More

I came in looking for a room off the street at about 8pm after a long drive and the guy on reception was really helpful and got me one of the 3-star rooms. It was just me so this was ideal for my basic needs. The bed was comfy and the aircon was cold! At only $85 for the night... More

Frankly, if you are booked to stay here - change it!!!!! This hotel has recently changed hands and is now called The Red Carpet Motel. The carpet is a little frayed. The mattress we tried to sleep on last night had springs hanging out the side, the room is a bit tired to say the least. The licenced restaurant does... More

The motel was in need of a face lift but was good value and close to everything we needed. The room was clean and tidy. The mattress was uncomfortable as it was very soft and sank in the middle. I would stay here again if the mattress was replaced.
