Whilst it was clean and quite comfortable, it did have very tired appeal to it, could use a major facelift not worth the money for what you get, considering the competition around the district, tiny bathroom and smallest flat screen tv imaginable.2hrs of free wifi when others are offering free internet. We stayed two nights 208.00

We stayed in room 12 which was a renovated room with good size bad, clean, good shower and lounge, new carpet and paint. Some rooms are not renovated so ring and make sure you have a good room. Road noise minimal, but we could hear the tv and shower from two rooms away so may be weary when crowded. The... More

The only saving grace for the family room was the cleanliness....everything needed to be upgraded (except the tvs) or fixed....decided to have a look at the pool area...it is unusable....would not stay there again unless fully refurbished....well done to the cleaners!!!....

We only stayed one night & it was perfect for us. Rooms are big, very clean & well maintained. The motel is dated but you can tell time has been put in to maintain a high level of cleanliness. The bathroom was slightly small & the heater took awhile to heat up but they were minor things. For the price... More

I booked this motel for two reasons - price and the fact that I was able to secure a room with two double beds, which was a real treat for my disabled son, who is quite large. I thought it was good value for money, as it was very clean and comfortable and a very short drive from all amenities.... More

Holy heck this is without doubt the worst place I've ever stayed at. To call the room dated is an understatement, it's a wreck! Perhaps I got a very bad room, room 26, I don't know. I can't believe they rent this place out, if it wasn't so late I would've just left then & there! It should be rented... More

Hello Bernie 678 I am sorry to hear that you were not satisfied but the aspects that you detail do not sound like my rooms. The floors are straight and flat here (standard concrete floor carpeted wall to wall, and in many cases including that room in a 100% pure wool carpet - durable long lasting to suit heavy foot...

Close to shopping centre, town centre, petrol, and takeaway. 70's and 80's decor comfortable beds and whilst dated bathroom had a good shower.

This motel is basic and a bit dated, but one of the cleanest motel rooms I have ever stayed in. Although it's basic, everything worked and the room was big, even with our extra bed. The service was friendly and it was perfect for our stop over, great for a short stay. Easy to find and nice and close to... More

3 nights spent here with family were comfortable, convenient and very well priced. Room was spacious and well maintained daily. Management was helpful, friendly and flexible. There was ample scope to accommodate large vehicles and trailers if required.

Hello agjm2016 Thank you for your feedback. I guess our tag line which includes the word 'Spacious' in it, is all encompassing as the whole property sits on over two acres of land. This means not only the rooms but everything else that goes with that, offers freedom of movement. I also note that you were comfortable and that is... More

Budget priced hotel room that was very nice. Queen sized bed, bar fridge and TV were all that we needed for the night. Bed was very comfy. Staff at check in were very friendly and provided plenty of information for things to check out in the area as well as on the rest of our journey.
