“nosey owners!!!!”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights in a large group and were not happy with the service at all. The lady owner was very nosey, and if you were outside your room, she was either watching through the window, or walking out to talk to you. The toilet paper was not stocked up in the rooms, and when asked for more, she was not happy to give out! 1 of the rooms smelt a little funny, and another had an ant infestation. The bed was comfy, but the pillow had mould marks and was disgusting. Absolute rip off for the amount we paid, I would stay at the Royal hotel again next time, a lot cheaper, and better service even tho its a pub!!!!!

Room Tip: Don't stay here!

We stayed for two nights after Christmas (two night minimum booking allowed at that time) but knew what to expect as we had been here three years before. We were pleasantly surprised to discover that the room appeared to have been re-decorated since our last stay and were clean and tidy, if a little basic, although there was a fridge, microwave and TV with DVD player. There are also free Laundry facilities. Upon chatting to the Relief Manager, he told us that there were new people in charge since our previous visit as the previous Manager wasn't the best and they seem to be trying to raise the standards of the Motel. The Air Conditioning was very good and the bed comfortable. Our only quibble was the amount of noise from the busy Highway that it is situated on and that the TV reception was very sensitive to the atmospheric conditions. One night when having watched most of a long film we missed the last ten minutes as the digital picture froze!

Room Tip: Difficult to avoid the traffic noise I'm afraid!

We stayed at this motel as we wanted a quick Sydney get away. I was not happy at all. The last minute special cost us $100 for the night which bought us a tiny room uncomfortable bed literally by the side of the road. The noise all night was incredible , the motel is right by the great western highway which has constant large truck traffic. The hotel staff were rude on the way in and on the way out. Save your money don't stay here or spend a bit more and stay elsewhere.

We booked this motel for an overnight stop as a last resort as accommodations were heavily booked. BUT, what a pleasant surprise. The ground floor room was split into 2 rooms (without a door) so was fairly large with a queen bed in one room and a single in the other. It was easy to find, spotless. & quiet (in spite of being on a main road) Easy walking distance to 2 good restaurants and a wonderfully stocked bottle shop. A well priced service station was across the road. A very convenient, comfortable overnighter. Would stay there again.

I had a room on the lower floor, whilst I could hear the traffic it was not an issue and did not keep me awake. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was spotlessly clean. I would not hesitate to stay another time. The fill-in managers were a delight and extremely helpful.

Room Tip: Possibly the ground floor is quieter than the 1st floor.

Outside lights need to be turned of sooner, the room was just too bright from the external light, blinds but no curtains. The taps in the bathroom did not have hot/cold on them, this I understand is a safety issue. All in all a nice place and would consider using it again some time,
