We have been staying at this tranquil motel for years. Recently we have seen some great improvements of presentation, cleanliness and unobtrusive service. Its unique park-like setting next to the (my) favorite fishing river is hard to find in this busy world. And, as importantly, my wife loves the walks along the river she can explore without having to get into the car. You wake up to a concert of the resident native bird choir and for the rest of the day you enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. The place is well serviced but you hardly feel disturbed. We love the non-artificial environment that is at all times supported by a very genuinely friendly management. At times we stay for a little holiday. The units are geared up for more than a one night's stay. We are always happy to cater for ourselves with the generous kitchen and dining area available. As a bonus to us we can bring our dog who also likes the pleasant place away from home. We are not even looking at going anywhere else!
