This was a last minute booking for us and we needed somewhere cheap and clean. We had one extra adult when we arrived and reception quickly and virtually no extra cost gave us a bigger room. Beds had electric blankets (thankfully as it was Winter) and were comfortable with good pillows. My only fault was that the bathroom could have... More

Handson Y, General Manager at Peppinella Motel, responded to this review

Sorry to hear this bad experience in our motel. I was on leave when you were here and this was true according to what the relief manager told me. We would be very careful with the issue in the future. For the refund I am sure that money had been returned to your account as we promised over the phone... More

Stayed one night. The room was okay without being anything special. WiFi internet was intermittent, going on and off a few times during the evening. When first turning the hot water on in the shower it sounded like a brass band was hiding in the wall, glad it wasn't late at night :) Overall I would rate the motel as... More

Stayed overnight on the way to Tasmania. The room was very clean and tidy. Bed was comfortable. Only issue was that we were given sugar sachets that had what appeared to be coffee stains on them so they were not used.

We only stayed for one night but I was really pleased with this place, booking was easy, the guy on reception was super helpful and room was modern, with well equipped kitchenette and the bed was really comfy. Only downside was the pool that could have done with a clean out (lots of leaves) but overall would really recommend this... More

Stayed here for one night, not much from outside but the room 8 was very clean and modern. Reception was very friendly and helpful. And still have the milky way bars on the bed side tables. I'm very impressed and it's not easy to impress me. Will stay again.

There is no doubt the owner is working hard to lift the client satisfaction at this Motel. He was constantly on the go doing "stuff" and if energy leads to success he will do well. The only real problem we had was a noisy air conditioner fan, which he indicated he would address immediately. Would I stay there again, yes
