We stayed in a family room which was clean,spacious and great value for money. Friendly staff and great meals at the in house restaurant. Would definitely stay there again. Good central location and close to major shopping centre.

Really enjoyed our stay here, the staff are all so lovely and pleasant. The service was great; they really looked after our needs. We booked directly and got a $75 deal per night for a Queen room. Breakfast is $12 and I enjoyed the fluffy omelette. It was delicious. The place is close to the Stockland Earlville shopping centre which...

Arriving in pouring rain and very humid weather, our room smelt musty and damp. To top it off the air conditioner didn't work and the fan wasn't much better. There was no phone in the room. The young girl at reception was very nice, she tried her best with what can be called a poorly maintained hotel. The second room...

We upgraded and spent double the money on a spa suite only to be put next to the entrance where everyone enters and slams the door constantly 24/7. We informed reception 4 or 5 times they were polite and said maintenance would try and fix the door but that never happened in the 4 days. No change of room. No...

Rooms are clean, phone doesn't work, they stated they have been working on it. Internet is decent, this might have been 4 star in the early 80's but needs a facelift and a remodel. Staff are friendly and helpful. If you are on a budget and want a clean room for 89 aus then it is a go!

We stayed in a motel room and is was adequate for our needs. It was a little dated but very clean and the bed was comfortable. The shower had good pressure compared to other accommodation we have stayed at. Good location, in walking distance to a shopping centre and a bus stop at the front door.
