Booked through Qantas hotels but manager did not have booking in computer. Our room was very clean, comfortable for one night. Taps and shower not working properly, broken tiles on bathroom floor, door to untidy yard jammed and would not open or shut. Breakfast included in booking charge, and we ordered on arrival but it never arrived before we had...

Stayed 2 nights visiting relatives in town. Outdated Motel. Room was clean and very basic. Receptionist friendly. Quite a long walk into town for meals. Previous review about car parking areacorrect. Excess gravel could be used to fill in the huge holes in the driveway to the rooms.

Staff were friendly but the hotel is in need of a major overhaul. Some distance from the Centre of town a very good long walk to main area. Room was clean but very very basic. Car park under cover but all driveways are dirt and gravel

The Trip Adviser notice at reception gave me confidence to stay here, but it was a big mistake because I DON"T believe that the very good rating on the notice at the front desk is accurate, or deserved. My room had a curtain that was falling away from the rail and had been "repaired" by using a large safety pin...

We booked this motel on Wotif. After a nine hour drive we arrived at 6pm to find that this motel claims to not use Wotif at all. For the previous six weeks on the road we had used Wotif regularly. We could not find other accommodation in Holbrook and had to drive an extra hour. The owner claimed he has...

This was the first motel as you drive into town from the North. Keep going is my advice. The reception guy was very friendly and the rate was reasonable, it has new reverse-cycle air conditioning, but that's the best of it. Looks like it's about 50 years old or more, has had a few low-cost attempts at refurbishment, the bathroom...

Its actually 53 years old, and yes it does need attention in areas. I have owned it for two years and I am doing repairs as I go, maybe you think it is low cost repairs but I didnt think we were talking about The Ritz at a few thousand a night. At worst its clean comfy and affordable with...

Friendly greeting on arrival. Car park undercover. Room suited the purpose of a rest break after a long drive with my elderly mother. Room was small but clean.
