This is a excellent place to stay. Staff are extremely friendly helping you find places to see and also dine out at. Hotel is very central to everything. It's very clean and I loved the shower head. Just like home.

The room looked really new. Bathroom fixtures were sparkling new. The bathroom was big and the rain shower refreshing. Sleep quality was excellent. Located within a 2-min drive from the CBD and the beach. KFC right beside the motel, though we didn't eat there. Definitely stay again if we revisit.

Spent one night here. Staff were very friendly and offered lots of information on the local area. Rooms are clean and spacious, bed was comfy. Located behind KFC. No noise issues. Close to main shopping area and restaurants. About a 5 minute drive down to the water.

Newly renovated. It looked small from the outside but our family room was large. Enough to fit our family of 4 with space for a small round dining table. The proprietor was very friendly and welcoming. He gave us good recommendations to places to visit, eg Hopkins falls and Tower Hill, as well as a very good dining recommendation. We...

Lovely motel, conveniently located but not noisy at night. Recently renovated, so the room was comfortable and modern. Excellent shower, large bathroom. Only down-side was the proximity to fast food outlet, so the smell of fast food was in the air outside.

Very impressed with the space and comfort of the motel. Everything is new and clean and they even have a rain shower in the bath room! Room looks like it's been newly renovated. Motel owners, David and Diana, were very warm and helpful! Highly recommended and will go back again in the future.

Room with 1 Queen + 1 single bed was very spacious, comfortable, clean and tastefully furnished. Motel in a quiet location, so sleep came easily. Host David was very friendly, and informed about where to eat and what to see in town.

A modern, homely small motel. Only short walk to Botanic gardens. Extremely clean and pristine with beautiful sheets and bedding. Very well maintained room. Lovely bathroom with large, efficient and clean shower. Staff who were relieving for the usual management were very helpful and obliging. This was one of the cleanest motel we have ever stayed in.
