Stayed here for 3 nights whilst on a business trip. The room i had was spacious, warm, very clen and had every amenity you could wish for. Lovely extra little touches such as free WiFi, free decent plunger coffee from a local bean roasters, ample hangers, mini bar, microwave etc etc. The toiletries here are not your run of the mill generic motel supply stuff either, but enviromentally friendly and locally sourced. There's a real green push going on here, not just the normal hang your towel up so we don't have to wash it routine. The hosts are friendly and chatty with heaps of advice on what to do, see and most importantly where's good to eat. There is a great pub next door and there is also a great Indian and Thai restaurant within 10 min walk from the motel. Make sure you check with the owners that you get the right ones Red Chill and Thai Lotus as there are a couple of each in town. Taradale is a lovely spot and I really hope I can wrangle a trip to come back and stay here again soon.
