Backed by a still brown water filled billabong this motel is set well back from the highway so in terms of traffic noise it is VERY quiet at night. The buildings and fittings are a shade tired however my room was very clean and comfortable. Being mid-winter I had the reverse cycle aircon running flat out all night (earplugs muffled the noise of it) and when augmented by the very necessary small electric fan heater the room was cozy.
Booked an evening meal in their restaurant from an extensive menu however it took over an hour for the meal to arrive, and then when it did it was not all that hot.
Overall - a reasonable clean and tidy place to stay, but if you have the option, you may want to eat somewhere else, like the local Trotting club that has a great menu and great service.
