We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom units. The units are very well designed, and self-contained, with very good sized bedrooms, bathroom and living area. The beds are very comfortable. The motel is located just on the highway but our room was very quiet. We have stayed here before and we will always choose to stay here again.

My family booked two nights at the House to celebrate the occasion of my Dad's birthday- but unfortunately the property had been double booked for the Saturday night. In service business you often face “moments of truth” and I believe it’s how you manage and deal with a difficult situation that either makes or breaks a business. In this case,...

I have now stayed multiple times at the Heathcote Retreat Motel and each/every time I have stayed the friendliness/professional approach/fabulous attitude towards me as a guest is nothing less than outstanding. From the time of making a booking/the luxury suites (without the high price tag you could expect) and those delicate/personal touches not often seen serve to provide you the...

We stayed in the front 'cottage'' style accommodation. There is plenty of room, and the kitchen is well stocked with utensils, cutlery and plates. The floors are polished concrete and there is pretty interesting art on the walls. There is a bit of road noise, and the walls/floors echo a bit if the kids are inside. There is a lovely...

My wife and I stayed at this 1950's style roadside motel accommodation. A 1990's wall mounted air-conditioner that was so loud you couldn't hear yourself let alone go to sleep plus an obvious lick of paint did not impress. It is also located on the outskirts of town so a short walk to ammenities is not an option. It was...

A group of 4 families stayed two nights while visiting the local area. The 3 bedroom house was extremely spacious and well appointed. The motel unit was large. The beds were very comfortable, the showers were fantastic and the amenities were generous. We loved the accessibility to the town centre making it easy to explore the region. We loved our...
