Nice large and comfortable room. Slightly dated but wasn't an issue at all. Have read some low scoring reviews about this place and the people running it, I can't say that I agree with most of what they say. Although the man running it did seem like he might come across as rude to some people but I believe that's...

Last minute accommodation - checked in late in afternoon (no booking). Manager seemed to be having a very stressful day. Very brash! The rooms are large and moderately clean! Strange smell! Handy to RSL. Left early in the morning - we will mark this one as an experience.

This place is run by elderly couple who spies on every move if you are single. The time I booked in at 3:30pm, the time I came in at 7:30pm, I was policed if I came in or not or brought someone else in the room. This old man stood on his balcony and watched when I came back. I...

totally untrue, except for quoted times: 3.30 & 7.30! We do not "spy" on anyone. She claimed to be a repeat guest. I do not forget faces or names. Check of records confirm never been here in our 7+ years. She claimed to be a "rep" and going to Alstonville for some business. Left room unlocked, so I locked it....

We stay at the Centrepoint Motel each year and travel to the Blues Festival. It is always clean and value for money. If you treat people they way you like to be treated you wont have a problem. We find the hosts quite pleasant and helpful.

Good things: big room, hard and soft pillows, undercover parking, passably clean. Nott so good things - only two downstairs rooms at the front close to a busy road - the quiet rooms are upstairs at the back (cost extra), the place is old and rundown, the person who checked us in was having a very bad day - he...

"Passably clean" is a gratuitous insult, when Star Ratings inspectors, including a very senior one, rate us 4 1/2 stars for cleanliness. Obviously like undercover parking, made possible by upstairs rooms. There are in fact 4 downstairs rooms, 2 with patios where smoking allowed. The 2 front rooms are the highest priced, so the upstairs rooms do not cost extra....

Great price great service, very convenient spot. Room very clean, bed nice and soft. Had no issues at all during our stay. I would recommend it and stay there again. Thanks Marlon and Anne enjoyed our stay.

Lovely to have a pleasant friendly review, not one from a determined complainer. Thank you very much, giving the lie to the negative ones.

Cheap but definitely not cheerful! Terrible nights sleep on a mattress which is obviously well past its replacement date. Mouldy shower walls, leaky shower head and poor water pressure. Linen was clean and place was quiet but unless you like to roll into the middle of the rock hard QS mattress which goes 'SPROING!' in the night I'd take an...

Motel is old but extremely clean, having run a motel myself I know what I'm looking at. They are obviously trying to save some money on electricity with signs for water and aircon usage but I can't see that as a problem, people are always leaving aircons on when not needed. Had everything we needed and a short walk to...

Manger will cut power to your air-conditioning if he feels you have used it to much. Bad luck if you have had a (very) late night out & you want to sleep in or just want a midday snooze. Initially I thought it was a technical issue, but when I spoke to him rudely he told me that I shouldn't...

We took a nice room at the front with a balcony even though we had to drag our suitcases up the stairs. Balcony was lovely although there was a lot of noise from vehicles on the highway. The price was not the $79 promised on the sign outside. Unfortunately the air conditioner did not work, the bathroom tap ran constantly,...
