Friendly and affordable
Comfortable overnight stay in a clean, spacious room. The new queensize bed provided a good nights sleep. Basic bathroom amenities worked well. Needed the wall airconditioner on and kept the window closed to block some cigarette smoke from nearby smokers outside their rooms. Owners are considering split system units which will be quieter and more efficient. Generous addition of cereal, milk, bread for the toaster, butter and spreads to make your own breakfast. There was also a microwave plus complimentary tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits provided in the room. There is a small pool at the front of the motel.

The manager, couldn't have been nicer but unfortunately there was a crazy woman screaming and carrying on during the night that went on far too long.

There were pubic hairs in the shower, the bed was so old and worn out that you could feel the springs and it felt like I was going to fall off the bed, the carpet is dirty and stained. I wouldn’t stay there again.

Stayed here a couple times, but probably my last time.. a lot due to noisy neighbours (so not hotels fault there).. but the thin windows don’t help.. also cleanliness down a lot on previous stays

Was nothing to dislike. Surprisingly I could not hear the traffic even though on a main road.
John, au1 night trip
Fair 4.0
On arrival, there wasn’t anyone in the reception after ringing the bell for ten minutes, I called out and a person came in from the next room (loud TV blaring). They were apologetic and handed me the key to the room. When I asked about the restaurant, I was told it wasn’t in operation due to council requirements. I was then told there were more vehicles then there were car spaces and was told if we went out someone would take our space. So no restaurant and the risk of losing your car space meant we had to order in from the limited number of takeaways that would deliver to it. Now, I had specifically booked a room with two queen beds; paying the price for said room. (There were three of us travelling together) Instead was given a room with a queen and two singles, which I believe was at a cheaper rate. Regardless it wasn’t what I had booked. The room was clean but it had an unpleasant odour. The air conditioner was really noisy and you couldn’t adjust the fan speed. It was full speed or full speed; hence the noise level. It got worse - the handle for hot water tap in the shower was broken. It literally spun around. The cold water one wasn’t much good either - it was extremely hard to turn. Over, this motel was extremely disappointing and we will never stay there again.
