Our room was nicely sized and neatly laid out. Combined...

Some places we stay at when you first walk in have an odour, musty or mouldy. Here was so clean and fresh with no perfumes to mask any odours. The room was comfortable and the bed was to my partners liking. The bathroom was small but that's how it was done when the motel was built. The fridge couldn't keep...

We stayed here last night for a business trip and were extremely impressed by the fantastic service given by the owner Trish. She made sure our room bookings were agreeable for our group, and went above and beyond to sort the logistics. The rooms were clean and comfortable, with some nice modern touches. Thanks Trish - so nice to experience...

My car had a major Breakdown close to Maryborough, so with the facilities and repair places I chose this town to be towed to..lol. I chose this place as with at least 3 nights to stay without a car it was very convenient within walking distance of complete town amenities. The room was clean and well set out pleasant furnishings,...

We booked a hotel down the road but they over booked and last second we were accommodated here. The staff were helpful, had good suggestions, the rooms were clean and fair sized for price. They provided complimentary beverages and made you feel at home. Would stay again

Nice rooms, helpful staff and quiet location. I stayed for business and the room had everything that I needed. They also gave me a breakfast pack so that I could do an early departure. An older style restaurant, but presented nice and clean and well located.
