Lovely modern clean and most comfortable two bedroom unit with everything you could possibly need. The outside may appear a bit dated but don't let that fool you. As I mentioned the rooms are modern clean and comfy. Ours had an electric fireplace. Outside , the owners Janice and her husband have lovely rose gardens and at night the reception...

They are helpful and caring give great service to clients, have easy access and are quiet at night. They are comfortable, clean, and provide good parking. Siuated within walking distance of the Stadium they are an excellant place to stay when going to an event there.

Got into town late and was given what we paid for, which was a studio unit. Janice, the bosslady, suggested we could upgrade to the one bed unit, which for only another tender, was a much better deal. Absurd......I'd have paid at least $30 extra, because it was a much more sensible room. So helpful people, well equipped, convenient. That's...

I have travelled quiet a lot, and this was the most comfortable bed I have ever had when travelling. While clean it is very dated. The wifi was great however the parking was very limited and the location wasn't very well advertised. A bit on the expensive side for what you got.

A dated motel which is still serviceable and central. A bit tired but clean. Good off street parking. Staff are very helpful. Close to a range of restaurants. A little noisy later in the evening but not from the motel guests or rooms. Would recommend if you are going to an event or function at Addington Paceway.

Friendly place. Rooms very comfortable and family friendly. They allowed us to leave a vehicle there for 3 days while we did a train trip. Rooms have full kitchens. Our unit even had 2 TVs. We would be very happy to stay there again.

Stumbled in about 10 pm, way after office hours. Janice met us with a smile and warmed up fireplace in our apartment. Loved everything about it. Heaps of space, soft, downy robes. Only place we stayed with shelves, etc. (including Hiltons, Marriotts) for toiletries. Easy walk to Addington Co-op and Mosaic by Simo (great value, great food) and bus stop...

Staff were super friendly and we got shuttled to and from our train station - shops, restaurants and bars just a few metres up the road and the unit was very comfortable. I would highly recommend this motel and will book again for my winter trip.

We stayed in a one bedroom unit with a king size bed in the lounge and two single beds in the bedroom. The beds were very comfortable and the unit was very clean and had lots of room. The hosts were excellent and very friendly. They provided a free drop off service to the train station and even helped us...

We stayed in the one bedroom unit and it had heaps of space with all the comforts you could want. Its just a stone throw away from bars and restaurants also has free Wifi. Also close to railway station for Tranzalpine train trip and they give you a free shuttle to station. Would recommend staying here and would stay again....
