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.

We enjoyed a two night stay at this motel. It is well located with the shopping centre and other sites being only a short walk away. The motel had recently undergone management changes and the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was basic and the sleep quality was good. The room offered basic features of a bar fridge, tv and chairs. It shows it’s age and no doubt will need a refresh in a couple of years.

Clean and comfortable rooms. Stayed in a room facing the main road but traffic noise was not an issue. Heated pool and BBQ facilities. Will be back when next holidaying in the area. Within walking distance to shops, restaurants, fishing spots and beach.

Came down on a spontaneous trip. The lady in reception was extremely friendly and helpful, the list of different clubs and what not was very helpful! The room itself was fine, simple but I wasn’t expecting something out of a magazine. Everything clean, good stock of coffee, tea and sugar. Shower was the only downfall - I just prefer high pressure so no biggie. Great location - even some little kangaroos come up at night. Nice little getaway for my husband and I.

A great place to stay, clean, great location to town and a very comfortable bed. The check in process was easy and very quick. No complaints from me and I would happily stay there again. A very unassuming motel but very well laid and and great value for money. It was cold and windy so we didn’t explore outside but what we did see looked fantastic.

Great for the price, there were some things that need updating like no air conditioning, old small TV but for the amount of time spent in the room it was more than adequate. Parking was a distance from the room which meant getting wet a couple of times and it make unpacking and packing a longer task than normal. The bed was very comfortable and cooking facilities were adequate. Good value for the price.

We had a deluxe room, glad we didn't pick a standard room. Basic but functional, in a lovely position near Fishpen but I wouldn't stay more than one night. Room was musty smelling, the lighting was dreadful and the light fittings dusty, cobwebs on the ceiling and just generally run down. The net curtains needed a good wash and the door didn't fit properly so it was banging in the wind all the time. There was no information on where to eat in the room and no free Wifi to look anything up - you had to pay $10 a day. No phone in the room either. TV remote didn't work. Very very basic small area for tea and coffee making. Probably wouldn't go back.

Good value, but you could get cheaper for the same style. The bathroom was lovely and clean and modern The bed was comfortable and we had a little sitting area outside. The tiny kitchenette had most things you need, but the cupboards are really difficult to open & close Some staff were helpful, others not so.

Basic motel rooms, nice and clean. Cannot complain for the price. Small tennis court is fun for a hit, could do with a resurface, can hire racquets from reception at no cost. 10 minute walk into town across the bridge. We had a great stay, would stay again.

Stayed here as an overnight stay after covid restrictions lifted for work. Great location walking distance across the bridge to township or river. However I was really disappointed in the room. Heating wouldn't turn on, tv remote didn't work only 1 volume and couldn't change it or channel. Room value for money.
