This was the most expensive and worst hotel on our journey up and down the East coast. I can see why they took the over priced fee immediately on booking online, as I suspect many people cancel one they see the standard. The woman at check in was friendly enough but the room was well below standard. The parking system is shambolic, with our spot on opposite side of car park to our room, in front of someone else's ground floor room. The stairs and landing up to our 2nd floor unit were tired and unstable. The building and room is very dated and in need of major restoration work.

The family room itself was musty and had one noisy old AC in the back bedroom to cool the whole unit. The fridge was leaking water and the connection for it and the TV set up was via a power board that sat on the floor right behind the leaking fluid. It was an obvious safety hazard. The bathroom etc was also of poor quality and cleanliness.

The whole place was a big disappointment and I would never consider staying here again nor recommending it to anyone.

Not happy.

Room Tip: Stay elsewhere.

We stayed here for one night when travelling north and found the staff to be very pleasant and helpful. The room was very clean with a separate sink. The bed was comfortable. There was adequate off street parking with no road noise issues. It was just a short walk to the town centre and the R.S.L. club. We had a very pleasant night's stay and as a result we returned for two more nights stay on our way back south. Overall a very nice stay at a very reasonable rate of $85.00 per night. Renovations are underway at this motel so I would expect it to be even better in the future.

Room Tip: The downstairs room we had was fine and I would expect them all to be very similar.

Has everything you would expect for a 3 star motel for an overnight stopover. Good comfortable bed, clean rooms, good bathroom, friendly host, everything worked. All these things you expect, but don't often get.

We stayed here last minute as I was too tired to drive through to Brisbane. I was on my own with my 2 year old son and 13 year old daughter. Upon arrival, the staff were extremely friendly and we paid $90 for the night. I wanted breakfast the next morning in the room, but was told the chef was away and no one else to replace him. I found that a little annoying, and wondered why there wasn't someone to replace him or her.
The room was tidy, the bed comfortable, but the bathroom was dated, the shower was poor in terms of the water pressure, and the room most definitely needed a rug or something other than tiles. It needed something to feel a little more cosy.
Construction was going on the next morning and it was incredibly loud and took up a good portion of the carpark.I was glad we were leaving because some of the rooms appeared as thought they would've been affected by the scaffolding and noise.
Lovely staff at a good price and in a great location, but we wouldn't stay here again.

Room Tip: Ground floor easier with a family
