the room smelled terrible. staff tried to mask with sprays, but only lasted few minutes. Staff were initially friendly but quickly turned agressive. Dont think they are interested in anyone having a nice time, just wanted the money. The only positive was location. will never be back!!

I chose Coachman Motel at the last moment on a busy January Saturday. They found me a quiet room with spa and comfortable bed and good facilities. Their swimming pool was a respite in the heat. Checkin was quick and courteous - and the sound of kookaburras at dusk was sheer delight.

Walking distance to the main street for restaurants and bars. Amenities such as Coles are nearby too. Rooms are a little old but clean and comfortable for a night rest. Comes with a kitchen too which came in handy.

Spa Studio. Very small room. The sofa in the room was old and faded and had an odour to it we didn't even want to sit on it and the bedspread had stains on it. Dirt behind the toilet and bathroom doors. I think the rooms need to be aired out more often as they just smelled stale. Could do...
