This is an original,a motel that doesnt smell of curry with a really friendly owner who wants to help even though you only want one night.We booked the wrong date ,realising at ten pm we called the owner who was so helpful and only charged us for one night when he was within his rights to charge two.
An Australian original.

After a looong drive (they're all long in Oz I guess) down from Airlie Beach and struggling to find somewhere other the car to sleep, my son and I really got lucky when the local police suggested I tried this place. Unprepossessing from the outside, it is clean, roomy and quiet but the great thing was the friendliness of the proprietor who, even though I got him out of bed at half past midnight was smiling, accomodating and just effiicent enough. The fact the room was great also was just a bonus.
