Good value motel in the heart of town yet quiet. Owner David very friendly and helpful. We had room 14 - a double, which was clean, comfortable and looked like it had been recently updated. Couldn't ask for more.

The location is good. The reception was impressive. The room was spotlessly clean, the queen bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was fully functional and efficient. The room itself was small and basic. Overall not good value.

This Motel made a good impression on us. Basic but clean and spacious, lovely rose trees outside and each room had a table and chairs outside. Lovely welcome from the owners. They're happy to give directions and recommendations. Plenty of hot water, parking and right on the main street.

A friendly welcome and accommodating service help overcome the average motel rooms and the confusing parking. Location is directly opposite the supermarket and a few okay cafes and restaurants are in close proximity.

We were greeted by the owners after a long day of driving with a friendly smile and a warm welcome and as a special treat, 1 bottle of wine. We decided quickly that we would spend 2 nights here rather than the one we had booked. The property is at the end of the main street so walking to the...

It is always a concern and very disappointing when a motel receives adverse comments. However my question is why do guests not discuss them with us at the time? Whilst not the main issues here, the pool has been closed because the weather was not warm and we were getting the pool right for the warmer days ahead. All guests...

Had an overnight stay at this great little motel. Exceptionally clean with all of the conveniences needed. Anything not supplied and you only had to ask the very obliging Manager or his wife and it was there. David, the Manager, was very helpful with all the information that one needed to know regarding Robe and its surrounds. Very comfortable bed...

Nice hotel, good locale. The wife (owner) was absolutely lovely, extremely helpful. However @checkout husband verbally attacked me - frightening! He was upset that I wrote hotels.com re: their advertised price difference. Tried to explain it wasn't his problem but he said GET THE HELL OFF MY PROPERTY! It was shocking. Nice restaurants next door and a block away

To be honest I was expecting to write a lengthy explanation on why we had received such a bad review given my heated discussion with this guest.
