    Yes, we certainly are! There's just a $20 pet fee and your pet can stay in your room with you, our only stipulations are that he (or she) does no harm, doesn't disturb other guests and doesn't go onto the beds. Please let us... More
    Mr James Danton should go to polite School.his reply to my Review is completely false. I was the one who requested the police call. I have written to port Macquarie police and received a polite reply . I did not abuse tHe staff I simply went tO complain about no power. Power should have been on at check in time. I have never stayed at a motel or hotel where power was not on to make a cup of tea on arrival. Mr Danton must be experiencing low occupancy and attempting to cut costs wherever. One small round of soap in bathroom hardly enough to last two showers.no tea towel to wipe washed dishes. No milk in fRidge. General manager what a joke. I am still waiting for my refund as at 5/2/15.dont pay until you leave
