Our room was super clean and spacious with well equipped facilities. Easy front door parking. The Manager was helpful and accommodating with a booking mix up. We didn't want to go elsewhere to eat after a long drive and in a rainy and we were rewarded in the restaurant. The restaurant was fantastic, the food was fresh, local and delicious... More

I did an over night stopover with my 2 young daughters. The rooms were very comfortable and we'll equipped. We had dinner in the restaurant, the meals were large and the food was lovely, I could have easily shared my meal. My girls shared a children's meal and had more than enough to eat. I would have no hesitation about... More

This well located motel is good value for a budget motel, very clean, I found it quiet, a little tired but it does look popular. Didn't have time to try the restaurant. Recommended for that stay on the highway between Sydney & Melbourne. Plenty of parking

Thank you for your review. We take price in our rooms, service and restaurant and sorry you felt our menu was Lah-de-dah. We are an upmarket restaurant which is reflected in our menu selection and the prices but we do provide table service, nice table linens, a cosy atmosphere and an extensive menu selection. Our meals are very generous 'country'... More

I Stayed overnight on my way through from Melbourne to Sydney. Rooms clean and comfortable. Great location as everything was walking distance to town. Also very quiet. I would recommend anyone thinking of staying here, I couldn't fault for the price.

Pleasant lady host. Well priced basic unrenovated room. Good heating - put a towel under the door to stop cold winter draft. Nice poet themes - notices telling stories around the building. Good looking small bar works nicely with the poet's theme. No breakfast in winter

Very clean and large room, comfortable bed and a good sized bathroom. I couldn't get the wifi to work and was disappointed that the breakfast room was advertised as opening at 7 but it still hadn't opened at 7.15 when I left. It was far better value for money than where I had stayed in Goulburn the previous week and... More

Comfortable room, but the free WiFi didn't work and when I asked why I got a slightly nonsensical explanation. I don't think the lady at the front desk cared very much. The room was quiet and the motel is well situated. Although our room contained a kitchenette there was a sign saying that cooking was not allowed. Strange.
