Don't worry, viewers; this review won't be a negative one. Another very spacious Queen Suite was on the cards this time around, and it had all the cleanliness and comfort I've come to expect from this fine motel. Of course, I wish the pool had been open, as I was looking forward to taking a nice dip after my lengthy... More

The amenities are clean and in good condition. The two-bedroom family suite is a great idea and the kitchen facilities are excellent. The motel is easy to find and centrally located, with a supermarket nearby for self-caterers. But the mosquito problem is so woeful you will spend half your night dealing with it (if you have the family room, at... More

We were very impressed with the accommodation and were sorry we only could stay one night. Very quiet and room was immaculate! Had a nice coffee shop next door where we had a lovely breakfast! There was also a supermarket across the road if you needed provisions for your travel!

This was a nice stopover. Clean, modern facilties, spacious room with comfortable beds and a great shower with nice hot water and good pressure. Staff were friendly and accommodating, and when some guests decided to invite their mates around for a party which was right outside our room, we simply rang management and this was quickly nipped in the bud....

We had booked a room for 3 blokes and received a new room with a room with a queen bed in the main area and a second room with 3 single beds and it's own TV. Perfect for us.

Great place to break a long trip. Well appointed and spotlessly clean. Staff are very obliging, we got in at 1am to find a light left on and the heater on for us what a great welcome that was as it was a really cold night, just made all the difference! We have stated before and will be back.

I have stayed in this motel every year except one since it opened in 2002. The maintenance is second to none as is the attention to detail and friendly staff. Pam, Millie, Kerry and Tracey run a tight ship.

This is my 3rd stay and is still as good as my first stay some 4 yrs ago. Head down to the Carlton Pub for dinner or bring a pizza back to your room. Straight across the road is IGA to stock up for your road trip to continue. I will be staying here again next year

We stopped here on our road trip to and from Adelaide. The only thing wrong with this Motor Inn is the location. If only this was located where we stayed in South Australia.
