Overall a bit disappointed. Booked this hotel as it had an indoor pool. Too bad it's a bit on the cool side! Also packed exercise gear as hotel has a gym and features pictures of it. Yes, it's true there is a gym on site, but a casual visit is $10- even for guests. And honestly it wa s a... More

Room absolutely huge with ours having a window that opened out to street. The bar here has 5 dollar beers and cocktails from 5pm to 6:30 and that has to be a great deal. Whilst on main road which makes getting everywhere easy it is extremely quiet. Partner stated the darkest room at night which makes sleeping easy. Able to... More

A very good standard of accomodation, but a bit dated in places. If you can see past the dated areas it's great. It appears that some areas have been refurbished while others haven't. One thing they could do straight away to make the place feel more modern would be modern lighting- simple downlights rather than old fluro and other older... More

My stay at this motel is always good - cleanliness was lacking this trip with a bag of food from the people before me, left in the corner of the room. Staff were very apologetic when I mentioned it to them

The hotel is not located near anything so you will need a car to get to the shops etc. It is a spacious hotel with a nice bar and restaurant but the restaurant is very pricey. A lot of the lunch items were around $24 to $28 plus. Our room was fine. No complaints there. I was really impressed by... More
