We were kindly referred here by another motel who couldn't accomodate us. From arrival to departure we were made extremely welcome by Fong. We are a family & stayed in an interconnecting room. The rooms were cosy & very clean with all the required ammenities. Parking also great-very near to room.

We had a very impromptu stay at the Cranford Oaks back in 2014 thanks to a cancelled Jetstar/jetfail flight. The staff at the airport’s iSite arranged this for us. The staff were immediately helpful, taking a tired and frazzled family of four, helping with our bags and putting us into a room to rest while our own room was being...

Wonderful friendly place to stay. Clean & quiet. Steve the manager was most helpful and I didn't want for anything! Short ride to city center and it's on a main bus route. Stayed for 16 days and it was very nice. There is a very nice tavern with great food just across from the motel.

Nice place to stay. Room was updated and clean. The small kitchenette allowed us to purchase food and eat in the room...a nice change from restaurants. Reception was helpful with directions to food stores. Bed was comfortable and room was fairly quiet. Motel was 5 minute drive from the Northland mall and Countdown food store. We would recommend this motel...

We booked at the last minute needing somewhere handy to St George Hospital. Cranford Oak were very obliging and put a single bed in the unit at our request, nothing was a bother. Sky TV, free Wifi, spotlessly clean and plenty of parking. This cosy motel ticks all the essential boxes. Thanks to the lovely folk at Cranford Oak.
