This was our first stay at Hennies, my best friend and i chose Hennies as i had heard it was a great way to meet locals,low cost and central to other places.This motel is great for somehwere to lay ur head, shower, chill and meet the locals ( its a sports bar).The Air con in rooms is great. Cold showers took a little getting used to but by the 3rd shower of the day...we welcomed the cold water! Very basic rooms ( which is my style of travel) and serviced daily.The band who performed here were great..Henry has an awesome voice and is also a funny, friendly man.
When staying here u dont have to venture too far if u prefer to do nothing as everything for a layed back day and night is at your doorstep - cooked meals,family,friends and entertainment all under one roof - daily.
All the staff were wonderful and become like family to us. Hennie and Paf ( the owners) made us feel welcome from day 1...Paf came and knocked on our door one evening...she had made a cake so we sat on the verandah having coffee and cake. This kind of thing is almost impossible to find elsewhere and whilst it may not be a big deal to others we found it to be a special part of that trip. Managers/owners dont usually take that time.
After our week stay here we didnt want to leave. We formed great friendships here that have remained. I have visited again and again catching up with those special people, even taking my kids back to meet everyone, have dinner and listen to the band.I didnt stay here during our last trip due to having the kids and them requesting a motel with a pool.But, they too loved the atmosphere here at Hennies. I will definately stay again when i travel without the kids.
