Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The room was clean. But in need of refurbishment. Was not worth the price. Website said rooms were upgraded but not the room we were in. Since last stay it has new management. Not very friendly. We chose this motel based on the last manager and room. The fridge was not turned on when we arrived and there is need of a new fridge as the seals were cracked.

The entrance and exterior to this venue was uninspiring. However, the Superior Queen Room was superb! It was in excellent condition, clean and well equipped. The kitchenette had a sink and all washing up gear was provided. There was a good stock of tea and coffee. The complimentary biscuits were a nice touch. The shower was great. There were lounge chairs as well as a counter area with bar stools for dining. There were shelves for 2 suitcases. The free Wifi connection was good. Paper and plastic recycling was encouraged. There was a covered BBQ and outdoor eating area. Parking was easy to access. Although situated on a busy road, we heard no traffic noise. A superior room, for sure!

When I asked for extra pillows, I was told where they would be found. However, there was only one, but there was no-one in attendance at Reception, and I got no reply from the after-hours phone. There were no drawers or shelves for smaller clothing items. There was only one bedside table. The sofa was like sitting on marshmallow, my partner's bottom almost reached the floor. We had a 10-day booking, so a small set of drawers could have been put in the hanging space. Also, as a longer stay, it would have been good to get more than one set of towels at any time. The airconditioner was unreliable. The cleaners were helpful, though.

The lady on reception was fabulous and so helpful. Room was clean and tidy, had facilities to cook breakfast and we chose a cooked one which was delicious. Even though on main road we could not hear road noise. Would recommend this motel and we will stay here again.

Very old, tight and noisy. Curtains had moth holes in them, the bed was uncomfortable and did not have powerpoints conveniently located to charge phones. Receptionist was very friendly, but can‘t make up for overpriced low quality accommodation. Website photos are misleading.

Didn't expect much given price and a "motor inn" but pleasantly surprised with a renovated room with a massive shower. Rooms are clean and have a toaster, fridge, microwave and a large TV you would normally expect from a hotel. Nice staff and there is an outdoor undercover kitchen if you need to cook or a pub 2 doors down. Each room has a carpark in front which is convenient. Not as central as some other accommodation and can be a little noisy being on the main road.

I stayed in the newly renovated deluxe Queen room for 9 nights. Room was lovely with a comfy queen bed, big smart tv and a nice bathroom. Lady at reception was lovely and very helpful, its on a busy corner but i slept like a log. Also free use of the washing machine was great, i really enjoyed my stay here as did my work mates. Thankyou for a lovely stay, would definately stay again

We stayed here for 2 nights and found the staff friendly. The room was old fashioned but clean and comfortable. It was great to have a blanket on the bed instead of a doona which I find too hot for me. The shower head was really good too. Located on a very road but the noise seemed to die down in time for bed.

We stayed in one of the un renovated rooms which didn't worry us BUT the room was extremely small with no room to move around. The bathroom was also extremely small. When we checked out at around 9.30am I wanted to get directions to our next destination but was unable to raise anyone which I thought was very unprofessional. I could hear the TV on in the next room & although I called out many times I was still unable to raise anyone. There was a dodgy cardboard box on Reception telling people to drop off their keys when checking out. I would NOT recommend this motel !
