A good place to take a break when travelling from Sydney to Brisbane as its just off the highway and approximately 6 hours from Sydney. Just across the road a very short walk takes you to the RSL club which is small and friendly plus it serves good meals etc or just down the road there are a few shops... More

Located directly across from the Services Club (where you can get a good meal), this is a reasonably priced motel. If you show your room key at the Services Club, you are entitled to a temporary members' card, which gives you a discount on drinks and meals. The rooms are clean and spacious, with tea/coffee provided and breakfast available for... More

The room has a sliding door that opens onto a lovely grassed area and you have your own table and chairs just outside your door. The Motel also has a pool. Easy walk to the town centre, across the road... More

I stayed here for one night when driving from the Gold Coast to Melbourne. After a late start leaving the Gold Coast, this was as far as we felt like driving. Good choice, the room was a decent size, with very good heating, and a generous sized bathroom. There was a comfortable couch (converts to a bed) in the room... More

We stayed here for six nights in a wheelchair accessible room and whilst it's definitely time for an overall facelift, the room was spacious and thoughtfully equipped; spotlessly clean and the service was exceptionally friendly, efficient & helpful. The bathroom was equipped with appropriate grab rails and a very large shower recess as well as a shower chair. I felt... More

What a great little motel, so central located between Sydney & Brisbane. Very reasonable pricing, staff are lovely, beds very comfortable, very clean, so convenient as RSL Club is just across the carpark. Is in need of a make over but apparently it is in the pipeline.

Was here on an overnighter for work. Is clean, simple accommodation at a reasonable price. Fixtures are showing their age, however the positives outweigh this minor negative.Staff very friendly, and happy to look after your requests.
