We’ve stayed in a few motels but this is one of the best. Very clean, quiet and well appointed, our stay was very pleasant. Wifi is the norm these days, and here it was fine, as were the streaming channels available on the smart TV. A very comfortable stay.

We stayed here as a family in a single room with a queen and two singles. The room was clean and spacious. Kim was very, very friendly on check in and gave good local advice regarding food options. Nice and quiet motel and we all slept well. Note that their onsite restaurant is not open currently due to Covid. We booked over the phone, as we had a question we needed to ask prior to booking. I note that they charged us $10 more than the price we had seen online, but we were ok with this minor difference.

Second time we have stayed here , the staff at check in were so friendly & helpful. We asked to use the BBQ area at short notice for our family who were also staying here & not a problem, staff quickly went & cleaned up area around pool area , got BBQ organised & offered supplies if required. Rooms are clean , spacious & close to town. Will be staying here again

I received a phone call from the property at 4:34pm and missed the call as I was watching my child compete at a carnival. I answered the second call less than 5 minutes later to be told that my accommodation was being cancelled because of an issue with my card. I assured the man that I would fix this up and we were more than keen to stay at the property. He rambled on about people not turning up to the accommodation and this was his income. I assured him that I would be arriving at the accommodation very soon and we would not do that and that I would make sure the card was sorted... I was hung up on! I phoned him back once the card was sorted (3min later). He continued to ramble on about online trolling and this was his business and income and so many people don't turn up. I assured him that we were keen to stay there and this would not happen. He told me that we would not be friends (honestly who says that to a customer?) He hung up on me for the second time!! My husband and I arrived at the motel and he told us that he wasn't up for an argument and we were welcome to stay elsewhere, he hadn't charged the card and it's 24 hour check in so I don't know why he was so rude and why it was such a big problem? If you are looking for good customer service I would advise to go elsewhere! I have never come across anyone so rude before!
