The Spa Bath did not work properly, the shower came out of the ark and all taps needed new washers. The TV was not programed into the channels it showed in the room brochure, for the price it was over rated, very tired.

The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was very nice. We had a wheelchair accessible shower in our bathroom. So the whole bathroom was like our shower. There was even a warming towel rack. We had a parking spot just outside our room. The room was spacious enough for the two of us to spread our luggage everywhere. It felt clean...

Man at reception was the rudest person I've ever come across. Blankets had mold stains + other unknown stains. Cushions had snot on them which I told him about, and he said "oh it must be from the people the night before" Had to ask for another iron because the one in our room had been dropped on the carpet...

This was once a fine motel. I had a one night stay on a business trip. Outside gardens are poorly maintained. Check in was not particularly welcoming. Cleaner trolley was left outside my room all night. Decor tired. Filthy dishes in the cupboard. No air con which amazes me for a 4star in such warm location. Wifi is not free....

3 of us spent the night here. None of us had a good night sleep - largely due to traffic and passerby noise. The rooms were relatively clean but carpets were stained. The net curtain had a large tear in it and looked grubby. Beds were ok. TV unit very small. Bath was nice. However at $155 for the night...

Tidy motel units available with basic requirements. Easier to go out for meals. Has a swimming pool but very exposed and tends not to be used by guests. Staff are very helpful. Limited parking - friends need to park on the street.

If this is what you call '4-star' accommodation I would be loathed to find out what '5-star' accommodation is! The studio room that we stayed in was shabby, dirty and uninviting. The hand basin was dirty and the shower had a bunch of hair floating in the drain...eek!! The bed was very uncomfortable. The carpark is very congested and it...

Booked this motel online for one night paid $185 for the room. Parking awful, pool very small, carpet in room stained, double bed sinks and uncomfortable. Definitely NOT 4 star. Not impressed, wont be back. Pictures online taken well as they do not reflect the reality of this motel.
