Comfortable

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 7 Sept 2019
Spacious room, with queen bed, 2 seater lounge & table & chairs. Located 5 mins out of Portland on highway but was not noisy. Fantastic shower pressure. Great wifi. The manager was friendly. Bed was really comfortable. Lounge needs updating. Breakfast is basic but satisfactory.

The owner is friendly and helpful. The room was spacious with 2 queen beds which we had a great sleep on. Good internet and tv with foxtel. The shower was hot instantly. Being near highway it was not noisy. The reverse cycle aircon abit noisy but once warm turned off when going to bed and was warm. Beds had electric blankets but we didn't need them. Great value for a lovely clean room. Also got free continental breakfast for 2.

Room tip: The room we had was up the back. But l think even near front the highway not a problem. I cant sleep with noise and l slept like a baby

Went to stay here for 2 nights for our anniversary. Was the only motel available left for the Easter holidays.

Got there about 3.45pm, partners car had radiator problems so the owners of the motel let us use their garden hose which was nice of them but told us to move the car because it was apparently blocking the walkway which is wasn't. Anyway after all that we got into our room and I liked it, it was quite big then I expected. The Wi-Fi was good, the tv had Foxtel but the tv's weren't clear and the sound was a bit off. The kitchenette had 4 mugs, 2 cups (no wine glasses), 1 fork (how weird), 2 large spoons, 1 teaspoon, 2 medium bowls and 2 small plates. The bathroom was good.

With room service, they did change our bed and gave us new towels but didn't give us new cutlery or kitchenware which was disappointing.

Overall it was nice to get away and for $260 for two nights I would do it again.

Stayed here earlier in the new year. 5 minutes outta Portland on the hwy but not nosiey but that's the only plus. Spiders webs in the corners a noisy old aircon and staff who don't care if your upset but substanted accommodation. Shower scodered me as it flutcherated between. Cold hot burning and on telling staff wasn't even offered an apology. Unfortunately we won't return.

We reached after 4.5 hours from Melbourne. Check in was brisk. Room clean with every handy appliance you would want on a short stay . Microwave, Internet, ironing . Comfy Beds and soothing AirCon. Ample carpark. Good toiletries with neat spacious restroom. Housekeeping daily was perfect.
