Could do with some noise reduction measures - highway noise is a big issue and lack of security. Why no fence? Noisy and draughty. Not for anyone needing a restful break between a busy work schedule. Not at all competitive with other local motels on offer. Offering the absolute bare minimum to get their 3 stars. Clean and tidy, personable staff. But over priced and everything bar the tv needs replacing sooner rather than later. Trying elsewhere when I return.

Room Tip: Book away from the main road for added security and noise reduction.

Our family stay at the Bert Hinkler was disappointing. We found the rooms very sparsely fitted. The pillows were very hard and uncomfortable.The reastaurant was closed which is not a problem, but as we got take away there was no plates or even a knife. no microwave etc. Just the basics.1 teaspoon Please whats the go with that? This was supposed to be a delux room.

Sorry but I found this motel very poor - from asking for a blanket as the old type wall air con was so noisy (and they don't turn off when the required temperature is reached so you wake up cooked) to trying to organise breakfast on a public holiday (FIVE conversations about this one meal before they decided to tell me they couldn't do it anyway!). Nothing is quite right, meals are nice but not as tasty as they should be, but huge if you like that sort of thing (I don't), mostly the staff were curt and discourteous, they will not do much to please you so don't expect good service (only two exceptions to this). It is also quite a noisy neighbourhood and while I appreciate that people leave a motel at early hours I could not believe how many started their cars and kept them running while they banged around in their rooms or had a conversation. Rooms are dark and old fashioned and the tv is too small for the distance and the refrigerators are also oldish and noisy. Nor are they overly generous with the towels - they need replacing with ones that are less worn. I couldn't even get a face washer at one point!
Positives: Free internet though and the bed was comfortable.

The hotel is close to all the basic amenities. But the staff / manager needs to have more local area knowledge rather than just run a hotel.

We were arriving at the hotel late in the afternoon on a public holiday. We called the hotel a week before to get some information on what food places are nearby and if usually any of them are open on a public holiday. We got told that nothing is close by and that everything will be closed.

We went through the hassle of preparing our meals the day before at our previous place and brought them over keeping in mind that everything will be closed. Once we got there, we found out that there were a number of food outlets within a close distance and they were all open.

Best not to rely on the staff for local area knowledge and do your own research if arriving on weekends or public holiday.

Classic 70s motel, complete with "Norwegian Wood" bathroom and 70s colours. Toilet was loose on its mountings and squeeked loudly when I sat on it. Didnt worry me but might have annoyed the neighbour.
High quality breakfast at a reasonable price.
