Our room was downstairs which was easily accessible for my husband who is disabled. Good parking and there was little or no noise from trucks and cars The pool setting is pleasant and again easily accessible but secure for children. Bed was comfortable and everything clean and tidy.

We stayed here for 3 nights. We were looking for excellent value, somewhere to lay our heads after a busy day and the room certainly provided that. Most important to us was clean, fresh bedding and an easy on the eye decor. We had a well presented room with a queen and 2 single beds which was ideal for our...

The recent renovations have greatly freshened and modernised the rooms. Free WiFi was fast even though the motel was fully booked. Foxtel offered plenty of movie choices during the evenings.

I guess you can't argue with $40. Clean, tidy, efficient. But charmless. Wifi is such a given these days that it's considerable shortcomings was very frustrating. How hard can it be to sort it out. The whole experience was one of wishing we'd gone somewhere else.
