Perhaps not to be expected was the service upon arrival - I would have preferred to sleep in my car if I'd known how inhospitable the welcome would be.

Stayed here in a Double room that had an excellent Queen Size bed, that was really really comfy. Room had all one should expect from a 3 star property. Host are great people. I was more than satisfied with my 4 night stay here. PS: Try the local THai Restaurant - Awesome!

We had just flown into Australia from the U.S. and started our travel up north from Brisbane. We liked the look of the motel, and it was across the street from a store and small cafe.

My wife and I have stayed here in various rooms several times over a 10 year period. The rooms have always been clean, and any requests for extra pillows etc have been attended to politely and promptly. I have read other, somewhat hysterical reviews and do not agree with them at all. The highway is close and there is some... More
