Polite reception from the start. Obvious the property clean and well maintained. Room was spotless and had a nice atmosphere. Restaurant area very well set out with nice ambiance. Standard breakfast fare was more than adaquate and well presented. Didn't try the hot food menu which is in addition to standard room rate. My departure was delayed and owner Linda...

Good price, neat, clean, comfortable rooms. The staff are all really lovely. The owner lives on site and actually cares and it shows. The food in the restaurant was lovely. I had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place.

We stopped here for one night while driving down with two kids from Cairns to Brisbane. We got a suite with a kitchen. It was a bit tight but fine. The motel is a bit old in terms of its construction. However, the staff was exceedingly nice and polite. Plus the breakfast / restaurant room is very well done. The...

Warm friendly atmosphere, owner operated so not only great attention to detail but also a genuine interest in what your requirements were to make your stay perfect. A complimentary buffet breakfast was more than enough and the evening restaurant was cosy, relaxed dining, or to your door for the weary traveller. Very comfortable bed, better than mine at home. We...

Friendliest staff I have come across for some time. Rooms very comfy and super clean. It was only an overnighter, but could have stayed there longer. Really very good. The included breakfast was substantial and fresh. My partner added more to his and his eggs cooked to perfection.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice rooms, excellent value. Nice and quiet probably due to the internal brick walls. Slept well every night. Break was included. Good wifi. Large comfy rooms with couch desk and fridge. Would stay again.
