“Reasonable for Price”
Reviewed 6 November 2011

Quite good compared to other 3.5 star we've stayed at. It pays to ask for a refurbished room as these are fairly good for the price. Our friends had an older room which was OK but probably due for a paint and tidy up, ours was a bit more modern. Hope they open the restaurant again soon as the $10 weekend specials were great!
Don't know where the last review got their info from as I checked with the managers, it's AAA rated at 3.5 stars and I reckon that's about right.

Room Tip: Ask for a refurbished room!

At $96 a night and adjacent to a noisy main road, this motel was of dubious value - particularly since the water pressure in our upper floor room would drop to zero whenever another resident turned on a tap! Self-rated at 3 1/2 stars, this place should be definitely lowered by one star.

We did have some issues with water pressure at that time so criticism accepted. Hopefully your next stay will be a better one. Regards, Steve

The room was recently refurbished and was extremely good for $84. The restaurant had a good atmosphere and the owners were very friendly and obliging. I would recommend this motel if requested.

Nice room, clean close to take-aways and Aldi. The couple were very nice but they were relief managers to were not able to answer any questions I had about the area. Paid $94 which is slightly excessive for a motel on a main road.
