The manager was particularly polite and helpful. I could not fault anything about the unit. It was clean and comfortable. It is close to shops, restaurants and the RSL Club. A most enjoyable stopover on our trip!

Please get new beds!!!
Lovely friendly checkin but the bed is like sleeping on a board. Sadly there was also a couple fighting into the evening with a lady continuing to yell 'shuuuutuppp' to her companion. I know that this is not the fault of the motel but the thin walls meant you could hear this arguing and every tap turned on or toilet flushed. Not worth over $120 a night Im afraid. Very, very dated.

Great location
Excellent location, right across the road from the RSL and within walking distance of just about everything. It was really clean and even had a toaster and microwave. Unfortunately we were in a ground floor room and we could hear the people above us running around. We could also hear the TV from the room next door.
