What a find. Thank you trip advisor reviews. We stayed here for two nights in room 1. We needed central and comfortable and we like a little old school with a touch of refurbishing if we can for quick trips. The motel ticked all the boxes. The service was great, we asked for a haor dryer and toaster (i thought... More

We stayed for two nights at this motel in June. The location and ease to fine was great, the motel owners are very friendly and obliging, the motel was quiet, extremely clean and comfortable with free parking. Highly recommend this motel as good value for money

Three of us stayed at this Motel for 2 days. It ticked all the boxes for a short stay - price,cleanliness,sleep quality and closeness to facilities. Just off the Highway so there was some traffic noise but not serious enough to prevent a good night sleep. Bed was comfortable and the shower cubicle was large. Wifi and Foxtel reception was...

A large motel room with an ensuite. A very comfortable bed, good shower, working air-con, ceiling fan, bar fridge, extremely clean and well maintained with free Foxtel on a flat screen TV. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. Though the motel is on the main road, the office and main residence help block the noise from the passing traffic.... More

We enjoyed our stay! Able to park easily at front of unit and room was clean and comfortable. Would have appreciated a reading lamp on both sides of the bed, but a limitation to expectations considering price and location. Would return again! Staff pleasant and helpful.

This is a no frills motel that meets your needs. The rooms are a good size for short stays. The bedding is comfortable. The room could do with extra power points, it is hard to charge all those IT aids we carry these days with only a single point. The shower is a bit low and water pressure only just... More

The staff was very friendly and accomodating to our needs. We needed some extra bowls and microwave and it was provided to us. The beds were made and rooms were cleaned everyday and so was always a delightful experience returning from our activities everyday. Something should be said about how great this was located for us. At walking distances, there... More

This motel is over 50 years old and really shows it. One power point, old 'vanity' / sink in bathroom, separate hot & cold tap outlets, plus a lot of mildew in the shower etc. Overall the room was dirty. Value for money was poor and the rating has been exaggerated. Two star would be generous. Definitely a classic motel... More
