Biggest bed we have ever struck in a motel!!!! Excellent room on end of block, basic pool area on offer, round corner from all shops, clean room and all you need. Best place to stay in town - our opinion :)

We chose to stay here as we were passing through because I checked TripAdvisor for recommendations and they didn't disappoint. The room was large - which was a bonus. We had our golden retriever with us and they happily accepted her staying in the room with us too - she had her own bed and doesn't get up on furniture...

We only stayed one night in a two bedroom room. There was a BBQ next to our motel room which came in handy. The bathroom had a spa bath and really large shower plus plenty of amenities. The only problem was that there was only three dinner plates.

My husband and I spent one night here in late November, and were upgraded to a 4 person room. Unfortunately it was raining heavily when we arrived, but we quickly dried out. The room was clean and I loved the good range of toiletries provided. We also made use of the laundry and had no problems with the Wifi.

A friendly welcome was a good start! We stayed in a nicely appointed studio which opened out onto a lovely garden area. The motel is in a peaceful location but it's an easy walk into the little town. A positive experience!

My wife and I stayed here as part of a group tour and were pleasantly surprised. We pulled into thjis "motel" in the tiny town of Murchison and expected a very basic overnight accommodation. What we got was a well-appointed suite that was very large and very comfortable. Not a luxury hotel, but by far the nicest "motel" we've ever...

A clean tidy and well furnished motel room. A lovely quiet location, with a beautiful native garden area. Would definitely stay here again. It is just a short walk to the "town" and the service was friendly and efficient.
