We found this accommodation on the web. $120 per night, no brekky. As we were travelling to Port Douglas, we needed a stopover. Very clean, roomy motel. We had a queen bed with a single, which is handy as you have a little more room. This motel has a restaurant, but we chose to eat out as we were on... More

Breaking the long journey between Townsville and Rockhampton we were thrilled to find the "Coffe Shop" open mid afternoon. Glenys's very friendly greeting was lovely. Great coffee and hot chocolate and also very kind made us the best HAM, cheese and tomato sandwich I have ever had. The ham was made from pigs produced on their property outside Sarina. The... More

After a very trying journey in a rain storm we arrived in the small sugar town of Sarina, Queensland. We were given early access to our room in this small very friendly motel. Rooms are well appointed and have all that is needed for a good night's sleep and very welcome hot shower. We decided to eat in and had... More

Well our room was as expected, well appointed, plenty big enough and clean. We made our way down to the restaurant where we were greeted by our gracious hostess. The menu covered the grill, chicken and seafood with a list of lite and tasty favourites. Julie had seafood medley wrapped in Dili with salad (we are supposed to be on... More

On first arriving the reception was very friendly and helpful. Walking into the room was a pleasure. It smelt lovely and looked welcoming. Being close to the highway we expected noise but it was very quiet.

On arrival we were quoted a price of $158 for a "family" room (1 QB/1 SB).After saying Its too expensive we were told we could have it at the "weekend" rate of $120? This motel was rundown, dirty drawers, rusty shower basin ,ragged towels ,etc. We stayed at a clean, comfortable motel in Hervey Bay for less! Not recommended.

The room was very dark and drab. It was rather depressing. The shower had a filthy floor and the sheets and towels were very old! This motor inn badly needs a freshen up! There was also a long black hair in the bed. The night cost $100 and the only real positive was working air-con!

Stayed overnight during Christmas road trip heading north. The bathroom fittings were a little worn but everything was very clean and beds were very comfortable. Check in staff was welcoming and helpful with information about dining possibilities. We do this drive very Christmas and would definitely stay here again.

We were pleasantly surprised about the fit-out and quality of this tucked-away Motor Inn. But as others have already mentioned, the welcome was not as friendly as at most other country Motels and yes, it's a bit overpriced for what it is. The parking instructions were delivered rather severely. We did not eat at the Motel, so I cannot comment... More

Had to stay here on our way north as we had been driving all day and needed to stop. Not a friendly welcome and at A$120 for a twin room it was too expensive. During our tour of Queensland we had far superior accommodation for less money. The pool was was small and uninviting. However the water was hot, the... More
