Our whole experience of the Retro Motel was positive. Pom and Tina were friendly and efficient. The room was immaculate. It definitely had the 'retro' theme. The hand towel rails took me back to my childhood - we had the same one. There was a flat-screen tv which was easy to operate. We had a meeting the evening we were... More

We were greeted by the friendly new owners of this motel which was lovely. The rooms were spotless and definitely retro. The shower was beautiful which is a big plus. Everything about this motel was clean and fresh.

Very easy to drive past. not really close to town centre The room was quite small and badly in need of brightening up Don't bother with the shower. It took... More

Amazing value and great old fashioned service from the wonderful host. She recommended the Gordon hotel for a meal which was also fantastic. This place is tucked away in a very quiet spot in a residential area which appealed to me and you could hear a pin drop it was so quiet. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms... More

Perfectly suitable for overnight travellers. The manager is lovely and helpful, and her dogs really add character and talking points. Not very central, but only a two minute drive to cafes and shops. The motel is dated but clean.

We had no trouble locating this sweet, albeit somewhat older motel. Our room is good sized for the price, well appointed, very clean and the owner is a dear lady who would do anything for you. The neighborhood is quiet, just a few blocks from downtown - and a great place to be to see the area. We would recommend... More
