“A nice comfortable motel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2011

I stay here every time I visit Albany for work. The location is not exactly central, but it is only a few minutes drive to the centre of Albany.

The rooms are clean, spacious and well stocked with tea and coffee. The beds are quite comfortable and the rooms have extra pillows if required and a decent sized small fridge is supplied.

The restaurant has food that is tasty and quite homely. The breakfast buffet is average but adequate and I have no complaints about the food or service.

I can recommend this motel to anyone needing a quiet comfortable stay whilst in Albany and I will certainly stay again.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2009

I stayed at this motel for 2 nights while in Albany and was very impressed with most of it. The room (a HUGE family room) had a real queensize bed and 2 singles in a separate room. The queensize was very comfortable, and the pillows were in good shape too. There was coffee and tea in the room and the was cold water in the fridge, something I consider essential here in WA, at all times of the year.

The staff at check in were pleasant, the staff in the restaurant and bar were great. The food both when I ordered an individual meal and at the group set menu meal were exceptional and good value. Breakfast was good too, cooked and continental were available. Even if you don't stay here come for a feed, you won't be disappointed.

The motel is located away from the CBD, and you do need a car to get into the town. That could be a bad point, but then it is nice and quiet, even being on the Albany Highway and is easy to find. On the outskirts of town there are a number of wineries, and this motel would be an ideal base to visit them.

Of course if you are reading this review you want to know where it fails too. The cleanliness of the room had a couple of issues. The bathroom wasn't really cleaned properly after my first night and there was dirty head marks on the bed head, which I think is a sign of poor housekeeping, as it was very obviously a long term marking. Sheets and bedding, however were clean.

There is wireless available, but it costs $5 for 12 hours or $10 for 24, which I think is unnecessarily high especially when other hotels supply as part of the room price. Also I was directly behind the main office (rm 11) and the reception was very poor, averaging just 38% and it was very slow. The TV has some Foxtel channels (great) but again reception was a bit ordinary with some channels.

Over all a great place to stay with an awesome restaurant (others have reviewed that before) and I would recommend this Motel. If the issues above were fixed I would have given it 5 stars, no arguments
