This was a very spacious double room, everything was in excellent condition. The rear outlook across a lake was was picturesque morning and night. The room was very clean and modern,the only negative was the car parking space in front of the unit which was a bit tight,but other areas were available.

This motel is well located on a canal off the Murray River and in spacious grounds well cared for. Our room was quite reasonable in size but the facilities, particularly the bathroom, were a bit tired and in need of a refurbishment. The air conditioner was noisy and struggled with the summer conditions. Access to the boat ramp - suitable... More

Stayed here a couple of nights in March. The motel is 3km out of town and the front edges a quiet residential area. At the rear is a small inlet surrounded by grass and trees and beyond that is open land. The rooms have doors both front and rear, and it was good to be able to go directly out... More

This rating has been given because although the room was adequate, but rather tired, the main reason we had selected this property was because the web site advertises that it has a restaurant - open seven nights. This was important to us for convenience - I had spent many hours planning our three week car trip booking all accommodation online.... More

Fresh clean sheets and towels and clean room. Noises wall Airconditioning but it worked. Didn't eat at the restaurant so can't comment on that. Beautiful setting on the river. Would... More

We had a spacious room with great verandah views of a waterway and birds. The only drawback was that the bedhead light did not work which made reading very difficult. The ensuite was roomy and easy to move about in.

3km from the town centre but a great quiet location. Rooms have a rear door facing a small inlet and coastal grass land. Room was a bit aged and tired but clean and functional with a good sized fridge. AC is a basic window mounted unit. TV is a good sized flat screen. Kettle and toaster available but no microwave....

An older style motel that we were very happy with. Loved having a kitchen sink! And a back & a front door! Room service breakfast was available at a very good price. I loved being able to sit outside and relax watching the pelicans and other birdlife. Very very peaceful. The room had two queen beds & one single with... More
