We booked online based on Trip Advisor reviews and stayed two nights. I highly recommend this hotel. Rob was very friendly and helpful with suggestions and directions as we were spending two days touring the amazing Atherton Tableland.

Stayed for 2 nights - twin room. Despite being on highway, room was quiet. The motel is about 50 years old, but the rooms were clean and comfortable. The owners were very welcoming and cooked a great breakfast each morning. The motel is in a convenient position and I'd happily stay here again.

We stayed one night for a sporting event being held in Atherton. We had a family room. The owners were super friendly and accommodating, the bed was comfy and all the amenities were great. The Motel also has a pool which made it great for recovery after a day competing.

We were both very tired and due to school holidays were lucky to get a room with a queen bed and two singles at a fair price for the night. The owners were very welcoming & we chatted about the improvements they have made & are making to the hotel. Undercover parking was available directly outside the room. The room...

When we arrived we got a great friendly greeting it was nice and quick to get a room (as we didn't have a reservation) and for an awesome price. The room was very clean with a good sized bathroom and a patio area for smoker's. Would definitely recommend and will stay there anytime

Our host did his best to make our stay comfortable. The rooms are big with either a queen size and a single bed or the newly renovated one has a king size bed. Our room was very dated and not very clean. But it served the purpose. When we mentioned our concerns to the owner he did his best to...
