Reviewed 2 August 2016

Room was clean and quiet and comfortable, the rooms are set well back from any traffic noise. The Tavern attached to the Motel has a great restaurant , very good value and options, very hard to fault. Would definitely stay again.

My highlight was walking out to my car to find a staff member cleaning my windscreen after travelling all day - It was covered in bugs and bird poo and the cleaned it for no charge. It is the little things like this that make my day! Room always clean and tidy and well presented - With a comfy bed.

Stayed 1 one night while visiting someone in hospital. All ground-level rooms, parking at the door, very clean rooms, all quiet (no road noise). They have an adjacent tavern for bistro-style food and their own fancier restaurant. We chose the restaurant and the crispy-skin atlantic salmon was superb. I know this will sound trivial, but I noted that the quality...

Very friendly and helpful staff. Good size rooms with very comfortable bed. Have stayed here several times. Can definitely recommend the Capricornia Restaurant right next door for dinner but breakfast was overrated and expensive.

A warm welcome greeted us on our arrival after a long road trip to stop here overnight. Very friendly and informative. Rooms clean & spacious with plenty of refreshments. Pretty quiet but with easy access to a variety of different food choices. Would recommend & probably stay again if in the area

Basic room, some items in the rooms could do with updating. Eg Room 41 dvd player. Room 33 aircon and dvd player. Good beds/pillows. Free internet but very slow at times. Excellent food from restaurant. Good service from the front desk people. Would stay there again.

This was the second night of a bike ride on a long weekend. I booked this place because of the reviews on trip advisor. I should have done more research as it wasn't really what I wanted. I wanted a cheap room centrally located. Although I new the price when I booked it, I should have looked at the location...

Great place very clean, great young ladies at office. Hard to choose between the tavern and restaurant so we had drinks at tavern and dinner at the restaurant both were great. Restaurant food and service was exceptional and all of this in the same complex. Would definitely recommend very well managed.

Spacious clean rooms. We had a family room right near the pool. Lots of driveway for kids to scooter and a nice pool. Great food at the adjoining tavern. 5 minute walk to a small shopping centre and a few take away places for convenience.
