Do not stay here. The female owner/manager is aggressive and has appalling customer service skills. We were questioning her mental well being, after her aggression escalated so quickly. We booked a room a couple of months back for one night to attend a friends wedding. We had a very tight turnaround as we had to drive back to Canberra to...

I give it an excellent rating keeping in mind that it is a motel and not a hotel. Clean room with coffee maker, flat screen TV, clean bathroom, ample parking. Easy to found, right on the pacific highway. it was a nice stay.

Cannot emphasise just how rude the owner of this hotel was. We had a similar experience as many other travellers, swiping of our credit cards as soon as we arrived as their "policy" was to distrust all internet bookings. We had the very angry female owner almost knock down our door at 11pm, telling us our tv was too loud,...

Me and my heavily pregnant wife were passing through and needed a place to rest. Every motel in town was booked out except this one so we had to resort to it. I phoned ahead and made a reservation. Upon arrival the old man at the front desk (who happened to be the owner) said to and my wife "go...

The reason we picked this place was because nothing else was available, the reviews on TripAdvisor were terrible. Arrived today to learn that they processed the credit card in advance for both myself and my friend without our permission. I asked to pay in the morning on separate cards on check out, but the rude female owner told me that...
