I stayed here last minute during my 1500km drive from Perth to Karratha. I stayed in a single workman’s room, which I assume would be different to the majority of the other motel units. The room had a comfortable QS & single bed with satisfactory (mismatched) linen & pillows. The air conditioner worked fine, although was a bit noisy. I am not sure if you could open the window. The carpet was worn, as too the curtains. The room was tired and could do with a re-vamp. There were sufficient power points throughout the room. A small table & chairs in on entry, followed by a large TV was set on a desk, then a luggage bench and at the end, a separate desk area with bar fridge beneath. The ensuites bathroom was adequate: basin, toilet & shower recess. Soap bars and shampoo/conditioner are supplied. The bath linens were well worn & could do with replacing. The tile grout was dirty. Water temperature took a long time to regulate and water pressure was less than desirable.
I was only there a night, so am not sure about what services were offered. I ate at the reception restaurant buffet, which was fine. There are bbq amenities throughout the motel grounds. And there is a swimming pool. I had full Next G mobile phone and internet reception. I know that amenities (an ATM, restaurants, bars and shopping) are located close by.
I will note the reception staff were very friendly and helpful given my last minute need for accommodation. I would recommend staying here if passing through, but not sure I would recommend for a longer stay – remembering I stayed in a single workman’s room.
