Not sure if you would call this a motel ???
I think the name says it all "Miners Rest" - it is set up for large numbers of people in a mulitutes of accommodation types from single mens quarters to caravan park cabins. It is also set up for shift workers with blackened out windows as well. There is a large amenties block with toilets and laundry facilities as well. Only limited cleaning of rooms is offered, but staff are really friendly and helpful. Smack in the middle of towm just behind the pub. Will stay again.
