Does what it says on the tin!
Clean, comfortable but basic. The only bonus was the charming Receptionist, Bernadette. She was welcoming and informative.
WiFi very expensive - $25 for 5 hours was the best offer! Bed comfortable; lots of hot water and toilet paper in shower room but only one little bar of soap and a shower cup. Fridge was good and cold in our room and we were given fresh milk when we arrived. This was a nice touch. Tea bags don't make nice tea although coffee was good. Just before we left we discovered a box of tissues and a can of fly spray in the bottom of the wardrobe which we appreciated.
We booked a river view and there it was, across the road, over the roofs of all the chalets - beautiful, as far as we could see. Because the Motel is not exactly on the river, this might have influenced our choice if we had known in advance. Lots of stations on the TV but just like in Ireland, many repeats and lots of rubbish.
Menu for restaurant was surprisingly comprehensive although we didn't partake as we walked up the town for a drink and a better river view and ended up eating at the Pretoria Hotel, right beside the river.
If you are looking for a quiet stay, do as we did, come off-season. Price won't be cheap, but you'll get lots of quiet - we walked along the Main Street at 20.00 and you could count the no of people in all the bars and restaurants on your fingers. Mannum isn't a late night hotspot in April apparently!
It was a pleasant overnight stop. But I couldn't imagine coming back again.
