Excellent motel giving super friendly service and advice. The rooms are extremely clean and tidy with comfortable beds and a smart bathroom. The meals in the evening are great value and large portions. The breakfast is a real plus and again large portions. Highly recommended as a great value motel.

We needed a place to rest to escape the horrid weather and Lynda/Rose helped us settle in. Haha. Clean room, comfy bed and a great breakfast for $88 a night. Absolutely zero complaints about anything. Pubs across the roads good too! Thanks for making us laugh while we stayed, James and Rose.

It's a shame the pictures on your website, doesn't show the true state of the rooms. Very tired, & old. Badly needs a makeover. Bathroom had cracked tiles, old & disgusting. Bed was so uncomfortable, we rolled in to the centre. It didn't get any better, noisy workers going to work in the early hours, outside light on all night...
