I stayed here as I was attending TAFE nearby and for a Motel on the highway I had a wonderful time staying here! Customer service was impeccable and housekeeping was definitely up to standards! 11 out of 10 would definitely come back again!

I must say since our last visit only a few months ago the place has been refurbished and painted. The Managers (Kim and Gary) are probably some of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They were always so friendly and willing to help.
