We unfortunately booked on line so didn't see the place until arrival during a severe downpour. No receptionist, just a non-working machine on the wall. We found a phone and told our key was under the mat. Big bus blocking access to unit. No jug in room, walked back to phone to request a jug. Five hours later it was... More

An interesting week, touring to different parts of northern NSW. Coach driver Joe made our week, very knowledgable, easygoing and a good driver. Staff at motel were very pleasant and our breakfast chef, Jamie was excellent, couldn't do enough for you. Motel was clean, comfortable and very roomy, a typical older style of motel. Our tour was made special by... More

We stayed in this motel for 1 night. The decor is a bit dated as stated in previous reviews, however, the bed is comfortable (we booked the room with a king size bed) and the room is clean. It is walking distance to several good restaurants, the river and shopping centre. I didn't use the pool due to the weather... More

Have just returned from the weekly tour. Found the owner very arrogant (almost to the point of rudeness) and most unhelpful. He certainly did not want to spend any time near the visitors. Rooms were very tired and could have used some service. None of the curtains fully covered the windows, one room actually had the curtains tied together with... More

Staying here involved also a day by day tour of the area. Very interesting and a great way to see the area when you don't have a car. We flew in. The food was great, an entertainer during the evening meal each night. More for the older visitor. Does have a pool but outdoors not good on cooler days. Staff... More

I have never had such unfriendly service. It was peak time and the motels were all booked out. The staff knew that customers did not have much choice so were rude and not helpful at all. The rooms are old and in need if service. The showers were bad. There were no microwaves in the room. The grounds were overgrown... More
