The staff who met us was warm and lovely and the room was what you'd expect a 3-star rated hotel to be and most importantly was clean. It's worth the visit if you are looking for a place to sleep as you passing through. It's a sweet and quaint country town motel.

What an absolute disgrace. Upon arrival we waited 10 to 15 minutes for any one to attend the reception desk even though we had rung the bell (As directed) 3 times. The first thing that hit us when entering the room was the potent smell of pine o clean trying to mask the smell of filthy carpets, curtains & bedding.... More

As soon as i walked in the smell of stale urine hit me. Filthy room. Filthy everything i might add this was the " deluxe room " air con didn't work. Fire alarm was in bits on the floor. Asked for another room only to be shown a worse one.

This hotel is in a condition that can simply be stated as old and dirty. The furnishings are old and worn. The beds are useless, if the carpet was not so dirty the floor would be a better option for sleeping. They offer free WiFi although it is not accessible in many rooms. At most they should be charging pub... More

Friendly staff, good food in the restaurant and a good night sleep what more could you want. I stayed in a really nice standard room, after reading these reviews I was surprised as my room was very modern with nice bedding and all the works (bed was very comfy) slept well and left in the morning with a full belly...

Were running a bit late as we wanted to travel across Putty Road but was getting dark so came across this Motel on the main road and decide to give it a go. No complaints. Clean room and restaurant was fine.

Located on a main road, the traffic is never ending. The rooms are very 1980's and musty. The bed was comfortable, but the pillow has seen better days. The zircon was old and noisy. The staff at reception were friendly. If you are desperate this motel is ok, but its poor value for money given the other hotels in the... More

Yes the motel is run down but its clean and tidy. Had a lovely meal in the restaurant. Family run and they and their staff were all nice and helpful. Close to shopping centre. Richmond is a very historical town.
