The motel is very convenient to town in general, and more specifically to the jazz club,where I was going. Had a small issue with the TV, but it was promptly taken care of. Friendly owner, pleasant stay.

Nice room, very friendly owner, very clean and tidy. Good room service. No hesitation in recommending to travellers for short or long stay. Shower and toilet nice and clean. Perhaps could have provided a non-slip mat for the elderly

Nice room, not expensive, very friendly owner, very clean and tidy. Close to pubs shops etc. No traffic noise. Good place to stop when driving the coast road. We were able to walk to the local RSL club for dinner, also close to other pubs and eateries.

An old style motel quietly off the main road (and therefore off the noisy main road truck route) but easy to find and within walking distance of cafes and other meal options. Three of us (a couple and an O/S friend) needed a place to stay for the night to break our trip from Melbourne to Adelaide. WE booked a... More

Practically no sound proofing due to connecting doors between rooms. As a result we were able to hear every cough, every venture to the toilet made by the man in the room next to us. The most unbearable part, however, was that we could hear every word from the tv, which he had on until midnight, as well as the... More

It's not the very small rooms that was so bad - that can be overlooked if the room is OK but these rooms are very tired & in desperate need of some work & a good clean especially the bathroom. The bathroom seemed bigger than the room itself! There was mould in the corner of the room, the window ledge... More

Only stayed one night & moved on to another motel. This motel is very old & needs renovating especially the bathroom, notably the shower(mould & cobwebs) & the toilet was wobbly!
