Stayed for 4 weeks and i cant speak highly enough about everything. I have stayed here for many years and the new managers are one of a kind.They will go out of their way to make your stay as pleasant as possible. No complaints at all and i hope to come back again 2017.

This motel was clean and well equipped with anything you need
great over night stay
Thankfully for us it was handy to our wedding venue that we had to attend and were even nice to let us check in early even though booked very late the previous night
Thank you

It was a nice surprise when we arrived the pet friendly room was very clean & it was good that the pets are allowed inside. The bed was very comfortable and you have everything you need in the room for your stay. Very handy to shops,fuel,food etc. The new owners are very friendly and helpful. As we are in the same business we will recommend you to guest traveling this way especially being pet friendly & we would stay again. We wish you all the best in your new adventure.

We stayed for one night. Its not the type of place we would usually stay in but accommodation was scarce on the Coast this weekend and we only wanted to a place to sleep.
Check-in was quick even though there were about 4 guests checking in at the same time. The room is quite compact but covered the 3 most important things - Clean, Comfortable and Quiet.
Although small and dated, the room was impeccably clean. The beds were comfortable and we had a great sleep. The motel was fully booked this weekend but with the door closed we didn't hear a thing from another room, or even the main road outside. The shower itself was spacious, the water pressure was great and the water hot.
The only things I would note, and they're very minor, is that it would be great to have a thicker bathmat because the bathroom floor can get quite wet (but then again my husband is like a cyclone in the shower and water goes everywhere) and the carpark can be a bit tricky with a big car when the carpark is filled with a lot of other big cars. It didn't help that there was a boat and 2 other 4WD parked in front (non-designated parking areas) but that's the fault of other inconsiderate guests, not the motel management.
Overall, for my tastes its a bit small to stay more than one night but we were really happy with it. So very clean and quiet. The managers have supplied a lot of equipment in the rooms for those that may like to self-cater and while the rooms aren't serviced daily (unless requested) its understandable when the rates are at the budget end of the scale. Very nice little establishment and handy to all necessary services (service station, eating places, chemist).

p.s. the compendium says there is free Wi-Fi. It didn't work for me but really not an issue I was concerned with.
