Lovely staff and motel is tidy however this place needs a major make over. We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment and you could hear footsteps above you at night and people talking outside, the bed was so soft and horrible, the net curtains are moldy and the wood below the shower is rotting and moldy. For the money we paid it wasn't worth it.

A previous guest complained that her bed was too hard. I like a hard bed. The manager was most helpful, found the complaint, found her room (with the too hard bed) and I had a wonderful nights sleep on a good firm bed. Much thanks to the previous complainant!

The only positive thing here is that it was clean BUT dreadfully disappointing in all other aspects. There was mould on the ceiling in the bathroom. The bathroom door didn't shut because it had swollen from moisture. The bathroom itself was in a state of disrepair and looked like it had been patched by a child. The noise from other guests during the night was loud and disruptive. My allocated carpark had been taken by another guest. The iron was filthy and left a mark on a blouse. To add insult to injury a one bedroom 'apartment' with two single beds and a double, was a whopping $200. Given that a 4-5 star hotel charges only a little more than this, I fail to see how the price can be justified. I will NEVER go back.

Booked a room with Lake views as a surprise for my dads birthday. The staff were very accommodating with my requests and very friendly. Great location, walk to town and many restaurants. Awesome view , comfortable bed and very clean. Would definitely book again.
