There were laminated pieces of paper everywhere throughout the room, If you want to know anything - read all the little notes - found out I could get a hairdryer -... More

We stayed here last night as we traveled from Muswellbrook to Townsville with our 2 dogs. It is so nice to have good quality pet friendly accommodation available to weary travelers with pets. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the customer service upon arrival was great. The hot water took some time to come through but it... More

This was our second visit to this lovely motel. We arrived late afternoon to be met with a great friendly greeting from Greg. I had made the booking online so the check-in was a doddle.

Spent two nights at this motel, so quiet. The room was spacious, very clean and the bed so comfortable. Managers are lovely and so helpfull. Motel close to town but can order a meal in if you want. Breakfasts are also available at reasonable prices. A pool for the warmer months. We have booked again for next year.

Despite the out of date decor, this motel is very clean, quiet and had very comfy beds. There's even a pool! Will definitely stay here again, and recommend to anyone in Childers. Entry was a little hard to find at first in the dark is my only negative.
