“Little slice of Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

We booked into the Federation Motor Inn for a two night romantic getaway. What an unexpected and lovely surprise we had when we saw this large and beautifully appointed room! And clean – it was faultless in every detail. Hosts Sue and Steve have done an amazing job in giving this stately property a recent makeover, including comfortable beds, tastefully appointed furniture/décor, seriously good flat screen TVs, and state-of-the-art bathroom areas. We particularly liked the hi-tech shower fixture and two-person spa bath (BTW it actually fits two people comfortably with plenty of room for champagne bottle and candles!). The U-shaped courtyard has tall swaying palm trees and a beautiful central island boasting native plants. I found myself sitting outside our room for hours, just relaxing and taking in this tropical vista. The family area is built around one of the cleanest and prettiest in-ground pools I have ever seen, and is faced by the glass-walled restaurant/bistro. My only concern was the creeping vine growth along the walkway roof on our side of the facility – it doesn't seem to fit with the otherwise immaculate grounds. Altogether an amazing experience, and at a surprisingly affordable price point. Thanks to our experience, and Sue and Steve’s wonderful hospitality, we have extended our stay for another three nights!

Room Tip: If you don't mind the creeping vine canopy, then ask for the Executive Spa room, it is incredibl...

Really enjoyed great big room, shower that 'twinkled' and adequate facilities.
Very clean with friendly hosts, also car parked right at the door. Old railtrack across the
road was nice walk into town.

Room Tip: Was nice to see the sheep behind motel rooms, very countrified.

So many country motels are quite run down, so it was a real surprise to find that this place has kept up with modern expectations but didn't charge a premium for it. The facilities will suit all types from families, couples to the business traveller Sue and Steve were so helpful and knowledgeable of the local area which ensured we didn't miss any of the local attractions.

I stayed here for 5 nights in a newly renovated spa suite. Great location, close to town but still far enough out not to be too noisy.

Friendly and helpful staff.

The room had a hard bed, although I don't mind a firm mattress but it may not suit some. Two single seats, coffee table, tv, wardrobe, mini bar fridge and coffee tea making facilities. What more could you ask for really.

We stayed for four days in a beautifully renovated room which was extremeley clean with large TV, microvave(or oven?),etc,etc.(have'nt seen a shower like it) Could easily have stayed longer if possible. the pool and BBQ area were heaven and Sue and Steve introduced themselves from the start and were very friendly and helpful (with BBQ accessories etc). Honestly cannot recomend enough to anyone who wants a NICE place to stay

Room Tip: Both sides of the motel look great. We loved the palm tree side, looking at the honey suckle on the...

As usual I booked this motel based on tripadvisor reviews. It was a basic motel but the room was very spacious and clean. The recent renovations definitely gave the accommodation a lift the shower in particular is state of the art. It was just a bit noisy on the second night as a group of guys were still drinking around the pool area until the early hours.

Room Tip: I had requested a quiet room on booking but should have mentioned this again on checking in. So ask...

Whilst travelling with our toddler we have found that not all family rooms are created equal. A separate bedroom allows us to put him to sleep at a reasonable hour while we can stay up and relax.

The two bedroom family suite at the Federation Motor Inn was very nicely fitted out with new kitchen and bathroom. I was especially pleased to see the spacious walk-in shower with NO glass shower door that our door-obsessed little one could bang open and closed continuously. The second bedroom had two single beds but was still very spacious with heaps of room for a portacot (unlike our 'family room' the previous night where we had to erect the cot in the doorway). The bedroom had its own TV and a ceiling fan, though no AC.

The main room was HUGE with enough room for a lounge and a dining table and chairs as well as our comfortable Queen Bed. Great value for money and a very comforable room.
