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.

Not impressed with the management here, a really rude Wayne likes to intimidate women, stay away ladies!! Its at the end of town, small and cheap looking. Maybe he needs some educating from his wife on how not to be a bully to women

Our family has stayed here on a few occasions and its always the same .... Everything at this hotel is immaculate... rooms are great very clean and beds are comfortable. The owners are lovely and welcoming and go above & beyond to help with any requests made. Room is always cheaper than any others in town and we will definitely be back to stay.

My partner and I stayed overnight. The room was very clean and comfortable. The owner was lovely - he even offered to turn on the aircon so the room would be cool before we arrived. The room was cheaper than other similar places in the area. Will definitely be back. :)

This motel is a little different in that it has polished concrete floors. It is very clean. Only has a small round table so would love to see a desk or bench in the room to study maps or read the newspaper. Staff were Lovely. A nice touch was to provide bread, butter and spreads so you could cook some toast for your breakfast. The bathroom is also one flat floor with a circular shower curtain. Good for people with disabilities anda lovely rain shower shower head. Bit of traffic noise but you expect that on the highway. Beds were great.

My 20 year old daughter traveling with her dog was refused a room at 9:30 pm because she had her dog with her even though the web site says pet friendly. My daughter told the lady her dog sleeps in the car but was still turned away not very good hospitality for a country town.

Hello Bobbie, Please accept our sincere apologies that your daughter was refused a room due to her having a dog with her. We have recently had to change our policy on accepting dogs on the premises, due to a couple of unfortunate situations with dogs on the Motel grounds. Regards Carolyn

We hadn't prebooked accommodation for the night we stayed so it was a bit of an impulse (swayed by the lime green paint). We were a little apprehensive as all the other guests seemed to be gangs of workmen and we're two middle-aged women. But we were delighted with the place - clean, tidy, comfortable and well-equipped. Friendly, chatty staff who were very helpful and the workmen were all lovely and friendly as well. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay at a reasonable price

Wayne and Pam were very welcoming when we arrived and couldn't have been more helpful throughout our stay. Wayne recommended a restaurant for dinner and even booked it for us! The room was meticulously clean and the bed very comfortable. We slept soundly and were refreshed for our busy day ahead.We will stay here again if we revisit the region.

Have stayed here a few times and it is consistently good. Great central location, a few minutes walk to Coles shopping centre and restaurants, shops and pubs etc in the centre of town. Parking available right at your door. The rooms are very clean and spacious. Comfortable bed and great shower. Coffee and tea in room. Bread is provided for breakfast with butter and your choice of vegemite or jams. Outdoor cooking area, plus a laundry available (washing machine, dryer, ironing) for use at reasonable cost (washing machine and dryer). Excellent hosts, friendly and helpful. Always been a good stay, and will stay again.
