For 3 years this has been our January home for 3-6 days & has always met expectations. This year we opted for the queen bed & spa situated on the ground floor. This room is like a private apartment, being situated behind the office, with access from the managers carport, via a lattice gate. It has a small outside sitting...

Perth, Australia
Reviewed 9 January 2015

Very impressed with many aspects of our stay. Invaluable advice from the owner about some tourist attractions we were planning to visit. We had the family room with bunks and the accommodation was perfect for sharing a room with kids as the room set up allowed us to watch TV after kids were asleep. Perfect, quiet location.

My family and I stayed for 2 nights at the 3 Explorers Motel. The experience was very pleasant. The room was exactly what we saw from the website. The accommodation was basic but clean and pleasant. It is less than 10mins walk to Echo points The Three Sisters and unknown to us, the chocolate gallery is just opposite the motel....

Very quiet town, quiet street. But near the three sisters and the science world. Small but comfort room. Clean, warm and suffcient for family vacation. A little far from town centre, where a Chinese restaurant located.

Like they said on the introduction, its 5 min. walk to the 3 Sisters, a plus point to plan the trip. But better visit here with car, since its quite far from any supermarket or restaurant on foot. The room is clean and quite, just as we expect for tired travelers. We had a lovely stay.
