Nice country motel with everything you need for a short stay. Everything was clean and the bed was comfy and the Wi Fi was free and strong. Biggish table and chair to sit a bonus. Bathroom was compact and the fittings were a very retro blue! Friendly greeting at check in too.

The decor especially in the bathroom was a little dated. Rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. The motel is in a quiet location. So we got a great night's sleep. The staff (owners?) were friendly and checking in was a breeze.

One night stay this was very comfortable and clean. Can't complain about anything. Nice view to mt warning from room 29. Quiet with all we needed for the night. Walked to RSL for a cheap feed and drinks. Reception friendly and helpful. Although it was showing almost full online it was in fact pretty empty.

I stayed here on business. Initially when I rang to book it took nearly 10 minutes to make the booking which really annoyed me. The staff need to be more efficient.

Older style motel but rooms well appointed. Very very clean room. Great location. Fantastic service. Our plans had us arriving late 10.30pm. Received phone call to advise room number & door open with key in room. Lovely touch when we arrived and heater had been put on in advance. (Cold time of the year). Recommend

This is a traditional Australian motel - not flash/trendy, but clean and comfortable and roomy, with friendly managers who were keen to please. It is 2-3 blocks from the eateries in the heart of town. Breakfast was good and delivered on time, including a special-diet item.
