I stay there quite frequently. Location is near enough to town centre to access shops etc, but just far enough out of town to be a quiet location. It is on the main road into Pt Pirie but the motel is set back off a service road and the rooms are at the back which is why it is so... More

Thank you for your review. So glad you enjoyed your stay. The room is one that backs onto well established westerly gardens which assists in keeping them cooler this time of year as well as naturally quiet. Hope to see you again. Regards, Andrew Spier. More

The room was large, with a king size bed, sofa and table. The bed was very comfortable, the room was dark and the location was very quiet.... More

Service was great and helpful. The room was spacious and the bathroom plenty of room to move with a two person spa. Well worth the money and will definitely stay again. Off the bathroom was a small a outdoor setting under a pergola and very private.

It was 44 degrees when I stayed and the air conditioner work perfectly. As is typical in country motels, the WiFi was crap and I gave up on it and... More
