My partner and I came here in December which was amazing as there were so many Christmas lights around the motel!!!

We got to visit Lake Hamilton and get a few photos!

Also, the bed was comfy, can’t wait to come back again!

We do Christmas lights every year and the hole motel is lit up like a Christmas tree. We enjoy doing this and spreading the Christmas spirit. We are very happy that you enjoyed the stay and the light show and would be happy to see you again

Had an awful time staying in this hotel that's called a budget, for starters went to the reception to check in and they weren't even available had to wait 20 mins for someone to open up and they were non apologetic. Motel is in a dangerous spot being on a blind corner so have to be cautious of oncoming cars or cyclists. Had a family emergency and then couldn't stay so motel decides not to give me back my money and said they have no refund policy. I would not recommend to stay here

We are a family owned and operated small business. We welcome early check-ins, when they have been pre-arranged , so that we can make sure we are on-site to welcome the guest. There is a free phone outside reception that is automatically transferred to management when we are off-site to try and limit any waiting time for any guest that has arrived early.

We greet every guest with a warm smile upon check-in and also have a friendly "hello" to share when seeing our guests around the motel. Our Motel is located on a nice quiet street overlooking Lake Hamilton. There are two entrances/exits available for use, one of which has a clear line of sight along the road, enabling easy access.

Our motel rooms need to be cleaned from top to bottom after every check out, this is to ensure future guests are afforded the same clean standards every time. We are very proud of our Budget brand heritage and strive to make every guests' stay the best it can be.

Fairly old and basic, but all the important things were right. Comfy bed, effective heating and shower. Room had plenty of bench space and more power points than most old motels. Owner/manager was pleasant and obliging. Reasonably central location too. Aircon and ceiling fan could do with a bit of a clean.

In the vicinity of the lake. Some lake views. Stayed one night but managed to walk around that lake! Room comfortable. Spa bath a decent size and the shower separate. Stand alone room, so quiet over night but to be fair the whole complex was quiet anyway. Basics like a microwave, toaster, kettle, tea, coffee, etc supplied. TV reception was good. Bed was comfortable and most important: the room was clean. Main shops were easily within walking distance for me. Off street parking was convenient. Staff friendly. Value for money.

Room Tip: Spa bath: room 12 .Light and airy. Quiet. Patio with good views of lake.

We stayed here one night to escape the wet weather and to dry some wet clothing out after a couple of wet days on the road in a small camper. It suited this purpose and we liked that the room had a microwave and lots of tea & coffee & milks. The room itself is a good size and had a table and chairs. Bathroom was small but clean. Wifi was great - fast and reliable. My partner found the room to feel a bit dusty but it didn't feel that way to me - in the end he moved to the camper to sleep & I got the bed to myself so I made the most of being able to stretch out! In the scheme of things the place is a bit dated, a little out of town but at a good price point for an unplanned overnighter.
