Good location. Clean and quiet. Good value and a great owner happy to help with anything you need or want to know. Best place in town for sure. Comfy beds and nixe towels. Tea and coffee with biscuits a nice touch.

Possibly the best motel/motor inn I've ever been to for the price range. The owner/manager was very friendly and accommodating. We stayed 1 night and paid $98. There was a pool, camp kitchen and in the room was a queen bed, air con, cable TV, ensuite (great shower), fridge and all the small kitchen appliances you would expect. The external...

Great motel. Kitchen with microwave and all facilities by pool. Kitchen area covered and also the table and chairs. Rooms clean and plenty of room. Only a few units and quiet. Tea and coffee and fridge in room. Pleasant owner. We dined at Fish Café, good portions and we enjoyed. Good free wifi.

Wasn't sure what to expect but greeted by friendly manager. Rooms were a real surprise. Excellent facilties, nice and clean and close to pubs, shops and touristy things. Aldo has an outside camp kitchen if you want to cook own meals.

Staying here tonight and very happy to settle into a very clean spacious motel room after a long drive from Nullabor (nearly 900kms), small group of units, lovely hot shower, tea coffee milk biscuits. Right in the heart of town for a good walk after dinner before heading off tomorrow. Very good value for money. Thanks Rick for your help...

Motel is right behind Peterborough Hotel, beware Google Maps which has mislocated it. Very central location, small basic rooms, but a small basic price too. Quiet, off the main street. Pleasant helpful staff. There are a few hotel and other eateries all within walking distance. My little room had a two seater couch - nice - but on a cold...

It was really nice. The owner was friendly and welcoming. Great for an overnight stay. We had a twin room with double bed and single bed. The room was comfortable clean and spacious. The only thing that would have improved the room would be to have a microwave. However, You could access a small kitchenette in the camp kitchen across...

Was passing through, too early to stop at Broken Hill and I would not make Port Augusta , so Peterborough it was. I was a bit surprised at the size of the motel but what is the difference one room is one room. Nice and clean and tidy. Only two complaints, as four wheel drives get bigger these days the...

More reasonable than the usual motel & a heck of a lot more charm. Finally, someone abandoned the usual grim brown colour scheme! Thank you for a little imagination & a lighter touch! Adequate size, clean, tidy and quite sweet. Rick is a gentleman.

When we arrived at the motel later in the day on a Sunday, we were welcomed by a very nice lady, who thought the mafia were coming when she saw our 3 guys all getting out the van that we were travelling in. The ladies who were care taking the motel were very friendly. The rooms were very comfortable. We...
