A little out of town but great value for money. Shower over bath. Lighting great for reading etc. Bed very comfortable. Would stay again.

The Bagtown Motel isn't the newest kid on the block but it certainly is one of the best.

Located slightly out of town towards the industrial estate, don't let the railway lines put you off. we heard two trains on around 10am and the other about 5pm so you can be assured of a good nights sleep

They have a great variety of rooms from basic, disabled and right through to Spa and Honeymoon suites. As we were on a "couple" weekend we opted to pay the extra and go for the Honeymoon Suite.

Staying in the Honeymoon Suite is a little like going through the looking glass. There is one door right at the end of the complex but when you open it it's HUGE

The loungeroom combines two full size lounges which can open to sofabeds, there is also a dining room suite with seating for 4. The kitchen in this open plan room has a double sink and includes a microwave, toaster and kettle.

The bathroom is HUGE. There is a corner spa which has great bubbles and a separate shower.

The bedroom has a king size bed and is also large with little touches like bedside lamps on both sides of the bed and a ceiling fan.

But the BEST thing is the little private courtyard...It has it's own garden with an outdoor table and chairs and is wonderful to sit and eat breakfast in the robes provided by the motel.

There are a few things that need upgrading. For instance the TV's (one in the lounge and one in the bedroom) are older and small screened so they should consider flat screens and the bedroom has a video player rather than a DVD player.

The Aircon is also an older style so it would be great to have that upgrade to a more modern unit. We stayed during a particularly hot weekend so it struggled to keep us cool but we did have the advantage of having the courtyard doors open.

There is a smallish pool with a toddlers section separated from the main pool. The main pool depth is about chest height all the way through. They do need to fix the ladders to get in and out....they make a horrendous (scary) noise when you are climbing in and out and it...bends.

The grounds are very well maintained and whilst we didn't take advantage of the restaurant within the complex there were many who did including lots of locals on a night out.

I would recommend this motel for a romantic getaway and also for those passing through who just want to relax. If you have a pet they also have pet accommodation within the complex (it's on 4 acres!) so whilst your pet can't stay in your room they can stay closeby.

A very run down room, could certainly do with a reno. We had been travelling for 18days and this is the worst Motel we encountered. Looked fine from outside, but that's where it ended
