“Nice motel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

We stayed at Edelweiss motel during the big storm in the far North. The room was clean, with 1 bedroom the unit was plenty of room for 2. Basic kitchen facilities and a good location on the edge of town, staff were very friendly, and helpful.

Centrally located, easy and pleasant walk into town. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the beds very comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful and I thought it was charming that they had a little 'swap a book' library where my son was thrilled to find a copy of a book he had recently lost before finishing. We chose this place for location and the pool and it certainly ticks the boxes in that regard. My only real gripe, which is in no way the fault of the property owners / managers was the noise both nights of our stay from the nearby backpackers place which went on until very late at night. We stayed on the weekend though so this is probably not an issue during the week. This would probably be an issue for any motel in this central area, though the Edelweiss rooms are right opposite the backpackers. There was a group of us staying all who made the same comment about the noise. If you are into late night entertainment, this probably will not bother you, but if you need an early night (as we did) it could be an issue.

I was lucky to come across Edelweiss Motel on Wotif. The rooms at Edelweiss Motel were basic but clean and spacious. The rooms have a small kitchenette with basic facilities. The motel has a swimming pool and access to tennis courts. They even offer free wifi to all guests. The staff is very friendly and I would highly recommend Edelweiss Motel to all.

We stayed there only for one night but it was a gud relaxing stay! The ladies at the reception were very friendly:) Our standard double bed room had all basic facilities and was very clean and neat! Bathrooms were spacious and absolutely clean. Surely recommendable:)

Staff were great, very helpful and friendly.
the unit itself was clean, well stocked and super convenient to get into town.
can't think of anything bad to say the pool was a touch cold...but we had a spa pool in our room and ended up there most nights anyway.
we'll happily stay there again next time we get a chance to see that part of the country.

Room Tip: get the Spa Studio

Great place and location, with fantastic hosts. A great time. Had a week there with three kids. Facilities were great, and a short stroll to the shops. Already planning to go back again with the family. Would definitely recommend. Thanks
