    The bathroom was clean .the sheets were dirty stained and were replaced with threadbare old discoloured sheets the sofa was filthy , the room smelt very strongly of airfreshener. We would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

    This is an amazing old building. Rooms are huge and well kept. Location is convenient for travellers but not much around hotel in walking distance so they conveniently operate a restaurant and bar onsite 5-9pm every day. Menu is great with wide selection, food quality is excellent.

    Very large room in reasonable condition. Just one problem with very slippery tiles in bathroom and entrance.

    Haven’t travelled this route to Sydney since the COVID pandemic struck. Before that used to alternate between SFD and Moto Cross just up the road It was a good choice to come back to SFD ... it maintains a good standard. Will stop here again on our September trip (unless we fly to Sydney).

    Lovely motel. Would recommend.

    Really nice older style motel. Very roomy. Furnishings could do with an update but are still very comfortable and offer a surprisingly good night's sleep. Restaurant is fabulous. Wait staff are very knowledgeable of the menu and their advice is spot on.
