“Best surprise of our vacation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

My wife and I loved staying here! The owners (Roz & Barry) were exceptionally kind and accommodating. The room had nice personal touches that made it feel more like we were staying in a very welcoming home then a motel. Very comfortable and clean.
Definitely a huge recommendation from us!

We stayed for 1 week over Christmas 2013. Initially could not get full 7 nights but Roz arranged things to allow a full week. Roz & Barry are most obliging. Rooms are very comfortable - 2 lounge chairs as well as a table & chairs comfy bed big screen TV renovated shower room. Microwave toaster crockery & plunger coffee maker as well. A clothes airer magically appeared one morning for our washing. Spacious well kept grounds with pool & BBQ areas. Easy parking. Excellent value. We will certainly stay again.

Stayed December 2013, traveled with family

Thank you JayDeeBee, Xmas is such a busy time and it was fortunate we were able to make a few changes and fulfill your request for accommodation and very happy to do so. Thank you for your review it will be helpful for any prospective guests to get an insight into what amenities we offer in our rooms. We may not be in the centre of town but only 1klm away and it is a good quiet location but central to the surrounding areas. We will look forward to a return visit from you some day.

Wow! Where does one start their review?? I recently booked three separate rooms to accommodate a family get together. Each room was spotlessly clean on arrival - that is always a great way to kick things off :) My sister and four young children were accommodated in a beautiful two bedroom family room. The children took great delight in the beautiful basket of toys in their room - it was lovely to see them indulge in games of old (as opposed to today's electronic world); playing cards, charades, ball games etc. They also made plenty of use of the outdoor pool (which was sparkling clean at all times). My elderly parents were accommodated in a twin room - everything they could want at hand - no stairs leading to ground floor room; air-conditioning for those extremely hot nights over the Christmas period; small kitchenette whereby they could self prepare their own toast/tea each morning. My husband & I were in a Queen room - everything to hand that we needed to make a four night stay enjoyable. As a combined family we took advantage of the lovely bbq area with its own cabana where we could gather and eat together in the evening. The spotlessly clean theme extends no matter where you look - bbq area included. But what made our stay truly memorable?? By far it was our hosts Barry & Roz. They are truly suited to the hospitality industry - so welcoming and friendly - they made us feel so at home. Our family was varying in its age and gender - and we all come away talking about what a lovely time we had - and its occasions like this that are memory making. So to Barry & Roz - thank you for the memories. As we were leaving on the last day and I was paying the account, Barry walked out with two red apples for our trip home!! Made for a beautiful morning tea in the car on our 9 hour trip back home. Thoughtfulness from beginning to end. Robyn & Mark

Where does one start to write a response, such a review is a little over whelming, all I can say is we are so delighted to hear back that your whole family enjoyed their stay with us, it gives us a great deal of pride and pleasure to have our guests recognize and appreciate the hard yards we all put in to make our motel what it is. Thank you so very much Robyn for your wonderful words of praise and for taking the time and effort in writing such a glowing review.

Booked at the last minute and very glad we did. Very clean rooms, comfortable bedding, large flat screen TV, quiet air conditioning and a spacious bathroom with an excellent shower.

Hosts are very friendly and happy to help wherever they can.

Grounds are also immaculately kept (woke up to the smell of freshly cut grass this morning).

Definitely the best motel we've stayed in and very highly recommended.

I found the motel rooms adequate in size but absolutely spotlessly clean. Roz and Barrie are very welcoming hosts and nothing was too much trouble. A lovely quiet place to stay, with pretty gardens and fresh herbs etc from the vegie patch. Great breakfast. I would recommend this motel to anyone. Robyn

Meet Roz and Barry the most charming of hosts, helpful and always friendly. I stayed in three different motel rooms due to three separate visits in the area, every room was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. I think the beds and pillows were the best ever experienced. The sparkling clean bathroom was a dream which surpassed many found in city hotels. The motel rooms are certainly a labour of love, a home away from home for all travellers.

Room Tip: I tried three separate rooms, all were excellent
