We chose this motel because it was close to family although a little way out of the main shopping area. A small but very clean and friendly motel. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The room we had was large and spacious with comfy bed, table and chairs and ensuite. Lovely breakfast delivered to our room.

Stayed recently. Room comfortable. Lovely bed. 2 tub chairs and table/chairs. Bought own porta cot so not charged extra. Very clean room. Lovely linen on bed and towels in bathroom. Great free Foxtel and wifi. Good size mini fridge. Free onsite parking. Didn't bother us but building and bathroom dated, but furnished and styled in modern way.
