We stay at the Centrepoint Motel each year and travel to the Blues Festival. It is always clean and value for money. If you treat people they way you like to be treated you wont have a problem. We find the hosts quite pleasant and helpful.

Good things: big room, hard and soft pillows, undercover parking, passably clean. Nott so good things - only two downstairs rooms at the front close to a busy road - the quiet rooms are upstairs at the back (cost extra), the place is old and rundown, the person who checked us in was having a very bad day - he...

Cheap but definitely not cheerful! Terrible nights sleep on a mattress which is obviously well past its replacement date. Mouldy shower walls, leaky shower head and poor water pressure. Linen was clean and place was quiet but unless you like to roll into the middle of the rock hard QS mattress which goes 'SPROING!' in the night I'd take an... More

Motel is old but extremely clean, having run a motel myself I know what I'm looking at. They are obviously trying to save some money on electricity with signs for water and aircon usage but I can't see that as a problem, people are always leaving aircons on when not needed. Had everything we needed and a short walk to... More

Manger will cut power to your air-conditioning if he feels you have used it to much. Bad luck if you have had a (very) late night out & you want to sleep in or just want a midday snooze. Initially I thought it was a technical issue, but when I spoke to him rudely he told me that I shouldn't... More

We took a nice room at the front with a balcony even though we had to drag our suitcases up the stairs. Balcony was lovely although there was a lot of noise from vehicles on the highway. The price was not the $79 promised on the sign outside. Unfortunately the air conditioner did not work, the bathroom tap ran constantly,... More

The motel itself is not too bad although needs an upgrade. The motel's position is central and close to the main street, club and shops. The owner/operator is constantly monitoring your use of facilities such as the air conditioner, water etc. I did not feel as though I was in a motel more like a visitor in someone's house. Whilst...

We had a fantastic cleanroom with great facilities, no cobwebs o bugs, nice smell. Beds were fabulous. Great selection on TV, excellent shower. Tariff excellent value. Cannot believe previous reviews we saw could possibly give a true picture of this motel! We highly recommend it to all we know or meet. Would stay there again whenever in the area.

We came here on the Easter long weekend on the spur of the moment thing, travelling up north. We found this hotel easy and central to everything. Our room was clean and tidy with all the facilities that we needed. Our hosts were friendly and to the point with their answers!
