Had ZERO hot water. The next morning my partner and I told the receptionist. I wasn't expecting a discount for the inconvenience, but I was excepting something like maybe a "sorry about that" didn't even get that. It's a no from me.

The staff at this hotel were so helpful and friendly. Full of information and polite service. Restaurant meal was fresh amd well cooked. Cockroaches are part of life in the warmth. When we found one in our room the owner generously deducted other charges. A great tesponse to a seasonal issue outside of their control

On check in, receptionist was great and couldn't be more helpful. Parking is free for residents and I was able to park right outside the room. The room it self was spacious and tidy. However, cleanliness could have been better. I think this motel does try its best, but seems to cut corners possibly due to time management I guess.... More

If you like a dark room to sleep at night, you have to find ways to cover all the power point switches. As they glow a purple/blue colour at night even when the switches are off. You also have this glowing light next to your head at night as you have lights on the wall above your head. Pillows were... More

Remote to tv should work I spoke with a young girl cleaning the room next to ours and she said she would get new batteries. Great but bring the remote back to the room When you stay for two nights...

My partner and I recently stayed here for 2 nights whilst in town for a wedding. The room was reasonably clean and had sufficient amenities. The shower worked well and the bathroom was clean. The main issue we had with our stay was the bed. It was probably the worst bed we had ever slept on! Not only was it... More

Only 1 night passing through but this place is perfectly adequate. The room had a courtyard outside which was much better than the usual traditional Aussie motel. It also has a restaurant which looks quite good but we were a bit late in arriving for the kitchen. Rooms are large and very comfy. Water in the shower was a bit... More

We spent one night here on a weekend trip and wished we could have stayed longer. Lovely view from our room but if you don't have a view there are lounges on each level that take advantage of the view so you won't miss it. There is off street parking and you close enough to walk into town or there... More

This was a beautiful room. The bed was comfy and the room very clean and tidy. The food in the restaurant was a little pricy but very yum. The service was amazing. The lady at reception helped with calling a taxi and they happily held our bags after check out so we could go into town. It is a $9.00... More
