The hotel is run by the owners (a couple) who are very friend and happy to help. In my case I was coming late and leaving early and they let me arrange everything in advance. The room was recently renovated, clean and nice. The A/C/heater works a charm and parking is literally right outside the room. Would happily stay again.

This motel has been completely renovated after the floods in 2011. The hosts are the most wonderful people you could meet and can't do enough for you. The beds and pillows are so comfortable you have a wonderful sleep. Close to the Botanical Gardens and the Hinkler Hall of Aviation.

If you are in Bundaberg on business or leisure, you just have to stay here. Nice quiet area, very clean. Confortable beds and pillows, airconditioning and management make you feel very welcome. It was well worth the money spent.

We have been visiting this small friendly and conveniently located motel for many years, but not since the terrible flood. Tom and Gail have certainly demonstrated the very best of "Ausie Battler" characteristics by restoring the facilities to the highest standards, including new quiet air-con, full kitchen utensils and excellent furnishings. We will most certainly stay here again.

Not long reopened after the floods. The motel upgrade and TOTAL renovation is a real credit to Gail and Tom. Quiet spot, very clean, tidy, comfortable and has everything you could need in the room including a kitchenette. Friendly and helpful service never goes unappreciated. Well done guys, keep up the good work and we would recommend you give this...
