This motel was chosen from Trip Advisor reviews for an overnight stay whilst travelling. We were made very welcome and the room was clean and quite well equipped. It is well located in easy walking distance of the town facilities. My only disappointment was the failure of the wi-fi to connect as is common in many motels.

This is a very well run motel in what I would call the older style which is lovely. A very helpful and friendly check in along with the town map with good dinner recommendations. Very clean, with kitchenette and a great shower. Excellent for an overnight stop with shops and restaurants within easy walking distance.

Dear Guest, Thank you for writing us such a positive and detail review. After all, apart from clean, good service and location, nothing is more important get the hot water in "3 seconds" for a great shower in this very cold winter. You don't get this even in many 4/5 stars hotel. Regards, Allan More

We stayed just one night while heading up the coast. Great location, easy walk to everything. Room was clean, relatively quiet too and had everything required and the stay was hassle free. Beds were somewhat more comfortable than other places I have stayed, but this is one area ALL motels need to lift their game in. Overall happy with our... More

Really helpful reception staff, gave us loads of information about the town with suggestions of where to eat. Best time to see the kangaroos at the golf course. Helped us with our bags and was equally helpful at check-in and checkout. Our room was on the middle floor and had communal space to sit outside. Good firm bed, clean and... More

Andy is a friendly bloke and a good host. We stay there as a matter of choice now about once a month this year, whilst our home is being built nearby. Good clean place. We will continue to stay there from time to time until we get our own house keys.

We chose this hotel due to its Tripadvisor rating. It was not great. Certainly clean and easy checkin, but very noisy. We could hear everything going on in other rooms, not a great experience and we are unlikely to book here again.

Hi Dennis, We feel sorry to learn that you were disturbed by other guests in the motel during your stay. While we have very little control to other guests' personal behaviour (making noise), the motel was built with double-bricks-wall in between each guest rooms. Considering most guests' feedback actually ranked cleanliness and quiet on the top to our motel, we... More
