Was looking for a base for 3 nights while travelling solo. Took a single room in one of the trailers: compact but great for one person - bed , flat screen TV, en suite shower room/toilet, air con, microwave, fridge, toaster, kettle. Site also has a small pool. Great value at $45/night. Having read some poor reviews before travelling, I...

Stopped here for a sleep on a road trip to cairns. Booked after noting had 24 hr reception as we had no idea what time we would arrive. Turned out it was 1 am. Found everything locked up and lights out. Rang number on door, had to ring 3 times to wake someone up. She gave me safe code and...

Hi NICnBOO, I am sorry that you had a few dramas with your key on check in. While we do offer 24 hour check in, and 24 hour onsite management, we do NOT have a 24 hour reception. The Managers do still sleep at night, and no one attends to the desk throughout the night, unless they are woken. If...

Stayed here numerous times over the years - NEVER AGAIN 3 people - 2 smokers - 1 non smoker - Paid $99.00 for the room and deducted a further $100 from our credit card accusing us of smoking in the room! Seat and ashtrays provided directly outside of room entry ( very smart) - If you dont want the smoke...

Hi John, in response to your review, despite allowing people to smoke nearby outside their rooms, we have actually never had an issue with this making the rooms smell so full of smoke, as it did after your stay, and we have owned this motel for many years. If you thought it was silly to put an ashtray and a...

Stayed in on of the cabin out the back, which was not made clearance booking. Not a motel room. No 24 hour reception. Phone and a key box. TV was on in room and key didn't work leading me to believe someone already had the room. Toilet had tiny bugs in it, show had what looked like mold. TV cut...

Hi David, I am sorry to hear you didn't have a pleasant stay. You are correct, we do not have a 24 hour reception, but we do have 24 hour check in available. There are a few maintenance concerns with your room by the sounds of it, I hope you notified our manager. I will contact them to see if...

Reviewed 1 July 2016 via mobile

The room was clean and tidy. The staff were friendly and helpful. It was simply somewhere to sleep for the night and it covered that at a bargain price. The maintenance is at odds with itself. For instance the AC was fairly new and it operated quietly and was effective at warming the room. Conversely, the shower head came off...

Jade W, General Manager at Ned Kelly's Motel, responded to this review

Hi John, thanks for you review. I hope you reported the shower head to our onsite manager, if not, please email us with which room you stayed in so we can sort it out. Thanks again, Jade.

So when we walking into the place it all looked good. Until we did a further inspection and found little things wrong. The toilet was leaking from behind it. There was big marks of paint missing on the walls. There was no smoke alarm fitted which is a major safety feature that needs to be fixed. The manager came out...

HI Mick, Thank you for letting us know of the trouble you had. It sounds like our Manager there may have accidentally booked you in to a room that wasn't clean.

We had prebooked as we were travelling and needing to stay on Boxing Day whilst driving through. The Hotel is a long way out of town which is inconvenient as there is nowhere nearby to eat. We arrived a little early and our room was ready which was nice. But that was about it. The bed was uncomfortable, the TV...

We stayed here on a whim when passing though Maryborough, and although we had our expectations set relatively low, we were pleasantly surprised. The last minute decision allowed us to negotiate a great rate for a cabin which turned out to be clean and have good facilities including A/C, microwave, kettle, fridge and strong hot water in the (surprisingly clean)...
