We stayed there for one night after arriving at the airport and not wanting far to travel. A slight mix up with our booking was soon resolved. We had booked a one bedroom unit and the main room contained another bed (single), table & chairs, and a kitchenette. However there was very little storage space.
The bathroom had a shower cubicle. Unusually the shower pressure and temperature is controlled by a single lever which is rotated clockwise. The pressure is preset, however it is necessary to rotate the lever through the cold water sequence when switching the shower on or off. One disadvantage of these showers is the lack of movement on the shower head which makes it difficult to lather up without turning off the water. These systems waste a lot of water.
The motel offers free WiFi and whilst our room was not the farthest away from the office, the signal was too weak to be useful.
We used both the restaurant and bakery in the local shopping parade (which is a short walk away). We were not impressed with the restaurant but breakfast in the bakery was OK.
The room was clean and the staff were friendly.
