This is more a 3 star than a 4. It is located a the north end of town and everything is in walking distance. The rooms are large and spacious. The furnishings are modern and there is a small fridge. The bathroom is roomy with a large walk in shower. The room was clean and fresh smelling with windows that... More

Stayed overnight. The room was good with modern furniture, good fixtures and overall cleanliness was good. The bed was comfy enough but the pillows were super thin so needed to double up with the spare to get to sleep. On the negative side there was no foxtel in the room, the bathroom shower edges were a bit mouldy, the room... More

Good and clean with room to move. NOT noisy although just around the corner from the main road. Great to be able to walk across to the renovated pub with two different food areas available to choose from. Pizza or Bistro - we tried the bistro and food was excellent. Good atmosphere - good drinks - good staff.

I would call this a budget motel that charges at the high end of mid range. By revamp I mean that the towels, washers & floor mat in the bathroom need chucking. Same with the bed linen, the wafer thin pillows & most certainly the bed.

Good quality room and helpful staff. Very obliging in changing booked room to a family room when hubby and daughter ended up joining me on the trip. Hubby and daughter had meal in the dining room - meal was "okay", kids meal was a bit bland and salad unappetising.

We stayed in room 20, a comfortable clean and very functional family room. Beware the staff! We were a complete inconvenience. My husband and I arrived separately on a cold winter night. He was not allowed to check in or given a key because the booking was in my name...so he was left to wait outside in the dark!!!! Really???... More

Good stay overall and very friendly staff. Enjoyed the bistro and pub very much. The only problem is that it was quite hard to sleep at night. The bed was quite hard and the room (number 10) lit up by the bright car park lights, as blinds are semi-translucent. Blockout blinds or a good curtain would solve the problem. There... More

This motel was a cosy, comfortable and relaxing room. We were in room 20 which had a working a-c, a mimi fridge, a large bathroom, a family room and a separate bedroom for the kids. This motel was quiet considering being next to a pub and i would definitely recommend tag you stay at this motel
