One of the best country motels anywhere in Australia. Fabulous service and attention to detail from the Manager who seemed generally interested in his customers. The motel is spotlessly clean, very well appointed, televisions in each bedroom as well as the lounge room. Free wifi without any ridiculous passwords, plenty of under cover parking for our three motorbikes and more... More

Comfortable, clean and quiet. The 1BR apartment was well designed, with the ensuite containing a large shower and a deep bath. Security screens on the entrance doors, undercover parking and tinted windows show the attention to detail the owners have dedicated to this motel. A guest laundry was also available.

As I lie in my very comfortable bed inside my warm room having slept soundly last night I know that it is below 0°C outside at present so this place gets a big tick. Hubby and I are in room 10 which hasn't yet been refurbished but it is still clean and well presented. Yesterday afternoon while hubby was busy... More

A queen sized bed, a kitchenette complete with everything you need to cook if you want to save a bit of $$ by bringing your own food...lovely and clean...we stayed two nights and they serviced my room! Which I didn't expect as I'd left the bed unmade in my rush to get... More

This hotel isn't new but in generally good condition. A bit away from the main street but only a minute's drive. There is a BBQ available if you want to cook and there are meals available from the reception. Plenty of parking with carport covers for all cars. The bathroom is small and a bit tired.

Thanks, John, for staying with us. We have an ongoing maintenance program but our Motels Units are 3 1/2 star and the price reflects this. We have 18 - 4 star Apartments, which are newer and more luxurious and perhaps you might like to try one of these on your next stay. More

We have stayed in many Motels throughout Australia & this rates amongst the very best of them all.
