Stayed here using our Accor Free Night, what a waste! My first bad experience at an Accor property. Room was very ordinary, the airconditioner smelt like the worst smelly feet ever, so we had to leave it off. Hot night so very little sleep because we were given the room closest to the highway and we had to leave the door open. When I informed Reception the next morning they said they would let housekeeping know, and still accepted my $3.50 mini bar payment! No points for customer service from me.

We found the motel good. Easy to find and the hotel nearby met our needs for dinner.
They also cater for those with disabilities. 5 or 6 disabled spots outside room and all rooms were on ground level.

Although we didn't use the dining facilities of the hotel, all other aspects of our stay were pleasing - definitely the experience we had justifies the excellent ratings given above. Would definitely recommend the hotel to family and friends.

We only stayed one night on our way home to Brisbane. The room was clean and spacious and had a large bathroom. The property did not serve dinner so we went next door to the pub. Breakfast was served on the property and was what i would describe as a normal Mercure breakfast. The reception staff were quite efficient and our check in and check out went smoothly. Overall the property was just another good country motel.

Overnight business traveller.
Paid $150 with buffet breaky included. Great choices & tasty too.
Room was clean & comfy, they provided me with a cable for the internet as that was part of my rate also. A proper table & chair is needed though.

stayed one night on trip to Canberra. near new so was nice & fresh. room was of good size with with good bedding. plenty of space in bathroom. small back area that was open to all units so no private outside sitting area. could be a bit of a worry if you were next a family with nosey children. breakfast was OK but no restaurant. pub at the end of parking handy for a meal & a refreshing ale.
