Arrived here for 9 days for work, and was greeted by the very friendly owners. Explained my working situation as I was doing night work and they were happy to service my room during the afternoon while I was working. I was lucky enough to have a loft room which had a small kitchenette/lounge room & a bedroom up stares.... More

Enjoyed the comfort of this motel very much. We stayed in a spilt level room with spa bath. The weather had us washed out for 2 days but this was more than made up for by the entertainment of the lovely hosts feeding the wild rainbow lorikeets. The motel room was clean, fresh and spacious and close to all the... More

This is our third return visit to this Motel!! Great place to stay, handy to shops and beautiful gardens, and just loving the wild birds it attracts. Clean, bright, comfy beds, wifi. Managers just such lovely welcoming people!! Great place to stay and explore the district and surrounds, and quiet.

Hello Patricia, Wow! Thank you for such nice remarks. The Rainbow Lorikeets can be a bit rowdy in wet weather, even so they are such a delight to watch, always squabbling and bossing each other around. Have you watched them bathing? Water everywhere! Australians are lucky to have so much wild life that we can interact with. I am pleased... More

Travelled to the area for business. Lady at the front counter was awesome and very informative. The rooms although a little dated were great and roomy enough for up to two people. As mentioned the decor probably needs a spruce up but all good.

We arrived on Australia Day which meant we were the only guests and had the best room! The accommodation - on 2 floors - was amazing with full facilities and a lovely outside BBQ. The owners were very friendly and helpful and gave us a display of beautiful birds which they were feeding. Definitely recommended.
