This should be a very good review - probably in the excellent rating. A good room with comfortable king bed, good bathroom, very friendly reception staff, an excellent restaurant (evening dinner and breakfast), plenty of easy parking. So why a 3 average rating ? In a word - road noise. Your main reason for staying in a motel is to... More

We had a premium room, which, while a bit small, is adequately equipped. The restaurant provided a good meal (reviewed separately). The Inn is located on a roundabout, frequented by heavy vehicles 24 hours a day, so the room you occupy may affect the quality of sleep you experience. Late night road work continued until 11 pm - that's not... More

We recently spent a night in this motor inn which left a lot to be desired. The room was depressing with decor from the 1970s or so it seemed. The bed was rock hard and the pillows unyielding. The noise from the street made sleep difficult. It seemed every vehicle that went past was coming through the wall, so close... More

I have just read the reviews and I'm sure management will come back at me with a comment or blame game. I guess I got one of the unrenovated rooms which did not state when I booked.

A very large motel which was very busy. It had obviously been an older style motel which has been renovated. Our room was very small - could have done without the sofa which would have given us some more room. The King bed was unexpected and was very comfortable. The ensuite was adequate.

Hi roosterman2016, Thank you for your review, with regard to steak price for $ 46 you get an aged Cape Byron Scotch Fillet with porcini mushroom butter served with roast potatoes & Italian green beans, you should have tried it.

My room was a showing its age, but was clean and tidy. It had a spa in the corner with a shower above in the main room and a seperate toilet and basin. I would stay there again if fiven the opportunity. The food in restaurant was beautiful but a little over priced ($44 for steak).
