Our room was clean and as advertised and our welcome was good. Unfortunately there were rooms above ours and the stairs were in front of our room so there was a lack of privacy and quite a lot of noise.

What a nice surprise to find our room had two separate areas. The living/kitchen room were nice with two reclining chairs and ottomans in front of the TV as well as a glass table with two chairs. The bedroom, although not very big, had a very comfortable bed. The shower was quite small and the sink was in the bedroom...

Inexpensive basic hotel. The room was dated with small private shower room and toilet. Separate seating area with tea/coffee making facilities and TV. Parking outside unit. As our room was located next to the stairs we did experience a slight lack of privacy from fellow guests going up and down. Fair accommodation for price paid.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write your review. We glad you found your room inexpensive.

Very inexpensive compared to others. I had read reviews about spacious rooms and a spa bath, but ours was certainly not like that. Certainly we had a sitting room with kitchenette and separate bedroom but the bathroom was tiny comprising a shower and toilet - the hand basin was in the bedroom. I didn't mind it but my husband found...

We got a two bedroom apartment style room with a jetted tub. Super cool. Great value and we were surprised by how nice the room was. We were on the second floor so had to carry luggage up the stairs but it wasn't far.

This is a great place to stay - rooms are big - seperate lounge room and bedroom - which is rare to find. Our bathroom had a spa which was a pleasant surprise. Nice and clean. On the main road - so easy to find. Only a short drive into town. Very well equiped kitchenette.

This motel is well situated on main route and easily accessible.Rooms are clean and spacious being well appointed and stocked. I had no problems dealing with motel when booking from overseas and found the management pleasant and welcoming. Although on what appeared to be a main road traffic noise at night was minimal. Recommended.

We rented the 3 bedroom suite for 3 couples and a toddler. The owners helpfully emailed us before our arrival to ask about our preferred bed configuration, and everything was perfect when we arrived.
