Wonderful service in my time of need
I booked online at 10pm due to an unforseen change of plan. I should've called but didn't read the bit about calling ahead if check-in time is after 7pm and was just eager to get there and settle in. When I arrived I was told had stuffed up and there weren't any rooms available. Luckily a guest had checked out during the evening and they COULD offer me a room, albeit without it being cleaned - just fresh sheets and towels. As this was easier than trying to find somewhere else at 11pm, I agreed. Besides, I was unable to cancel the booking on I was so grateful for the night manager and owner helping me out. The bed was comfortable, the water hot, the fridge cold, the unit spacious enough for me. The Wi-Fi was very poor, the neighbours a bit noisy, and the TV was just free-to-air channels. I didn't drive anywhere as it's walking distance to everything I needed - Bowls Club, cafe's, restaurants, shopping centre->where I received a great massage and reflexology treatment at Qing Fu TCM. Great little place for my 3 night stay, however the room never did get cleaned... :-D
5 minute walk to Baked@Ancora for delicious food and coffee!

Comfortable economic overnight stay with friendly
I needed an overnight stay to continue my journey to Queensland. It was comfortable And the staff were friendly. It was across the road from the bowling club so it ticked the boxes for an economic stay.

2/10 Poor

Dirty and uncomfortable Need a holiday after staying there Rude staff telling us they would only service our motel room which only had 2 towels once during our four night stay. We had to call them after the third night to say we hadn’t had a service and no clean towels. Only good thing is it’s a great location for the Bowls Club
