“Nothing special, but it's clean with a decent restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2006

This is your classic drive-up-to-your-room style motel, nothing more, nothing less.

The rooms are pretty big (almost too big), with all the usual tea making facilities, TV, sink and mini bar stuff. The bathroom is alarmingly basic and white, but does the job well enough. It's clean, and the bed is comfortable.

The restaurant isn't half bad for an evening meal, and the staff are all very friendly. There's also complementary laundry facilities.

On the downsides, there's nothing to do here expect watch TV, so don't arrive too early, the sound proofing is not great (but then it never is in these motels)...it seems that the next door neighbours movements and sounds are amplified through the plug socket near the headboard of your bed, so you can hear everything that's said. Finally, as I've already eluded to, it's a pretty glum, spartan room to spend time in.

Overall though, it does a half decent job of giving you a clean room for the night, and service with a smile for a pretty good price, so you can't really complain. Just don't expect too much.

Personally, I wouldn't rush back, but equally I would stay here again if I ever needed to spend another night in Yass.

  • Liked — Relatively close location to the main Melbourne - Sydney highway + friendly staff
  • Disliked — Glum rooms, poor sound-proofing
  • Stayed October 2006, travelled as a couple
