The food was fairly basic but tasty and there was plenty of it. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. Our transfers to and from the airport were... More

We unfortunately booked on line so didn't see the place until arrival during a severe downpour. No receptionist, just a non-working machine on the wall. We found a phone and told our key was under the mat. Big bus blocking access to unit. No jug in room, walked back to phone to request a jug. Five hours later it was... More

Staff at motel were very pleasant and our breakfast chef, Jamie was excellent, couldn't do enough for you. Motel was clean, comfortable and very roomy, a typical older style of motel. Our tour was made special by... More

We stayed in this motel for 1 night. The decor is a bit dated as stated in previous reviews, however, the bed is comfortable (we booked the room with a king size bed) and the room is clean. It is walking distance to several good restaurants, the river and shopping centre. I didn't use the pool due to the weather... More

Have just returned from the weekly tour. Found the owner very arrogant (almost to the point of rudeness) and most unhelpful. He certainly did not want to spend any time near the visitors. Rooms were very tired and could have used some service. None of the curtains fully covered the windows, one room actually had the curtains tied together with... More

Staying here involved also a day by day tour of the area. Very interesting and a great way to see the area when you don't have a car. We flew in. The food was great, an entertainer during the evening meal each night. More for the older visitor. Does have a pool but outdoors not good on cooler days. Staff... More
