The rooms were dingy & dark, could have been alot cleaner, Breakfast was terrible, sausages over cooked, & hard eggs, with bloody spaghetti, since when do you serve up spaghetti! What happened to tomatoes! Anyway otherwise a place to rest up, & get going in the morning. Management was a lovely lady, with a warm demeaner.

Lovely front of office staff, friendly and helpful. My room was cute and had everything I needed. Got woken up at about 5am to something in my bed; BIGGEST moth in there I have ever seen, must have been there for a while. Couldn't get back to sleep. Maybe pull back covers before you hop into bed.

Our family booked this as a mid-way stop for the drive from Melbourne to Sydney. We didn't checked in until very late, and had to check out very early, so both times had troubled the manager from their sleep. They were very polite to us despite such (though really I should have notify them earlier on both issues, sorry). I...

WE stayed one night and found the motel to be clean, comfortable and quiet. It has the usual facilities. It's close to town and you can walk everywhere. The club is nearby if you want a meal or some entertainment.

I stayed at the Poets Recall on Thursday 24th November. Reason for my stay was I was driving back from a business trip in Melbourne and wanted to break up the drive. I picked the Poets Recall because the reviews of the restaurant seemed quite good and they offered room service - just what I needed during a busy business...

We arrived at the Poets Recall at 8:30pm after a long drive from the NSW Central Coast. We turned in at about 11:30, then were disturbed at about midnight by a screeching alarm. We found that it came from the room next door - we knocked, there was no answer, then opened the breakfast hatch and confirmed that it was...

We arrived around 6pm over a long weekend to check in and reception was closed with a note on the door, telling us that we had to go over to the restaurant, to checkin. So I went over to the restaurant, there was no one there. Apparently I was in the function area...But to me, it looked like a restaurant...

We stayed in an upstairs room which was small but well appointed. The motel rooms are arranged in groups of three with a shared balcony. Fortunately our neighbours were very quiet. Parking was good and it's only a short walk into town. Next time I would take a downstairs room which is more expensive but much bigger.

Arrive to find reception locked. Rang contact number multiple times while waiting In 34 degrees for 20 minutes. when the owners arrived they went on the attack that we had not rung them. Demonstrated that the number was in my phone and surprise the office phone rang. They then became abusive and cancelled our pre- booked room

Yes, we did cancel your booking here at the counter as we DO NOT accept abusive behaviour from anyone. The reception door is kept locked at frequent times as we may be working in the restaurant /function room or in the laundry, pool area etc. We always have a cordless phone with us and as you insisted pushing your mobile...

Usually a motel is something that I don't really like to short stay because of previous disapointing experiences but the Poet's Recall changed all that fear -it was certainly different. Clean warm staff - pretty modern - nice presentation on arrival and very comfortable bed. Close to all amenities and the town
