This motel was the 12th on our Australian holiday and my journal records "poorest motel so far".
The room was really gloomy and outdated although clean. The dining room was closed and we were told when we checked in that breakfast would not be a full menu because the staff had been given the day off. Breakfast was a poor meal with very limited choices.
The location of the motel is such that there is nowhere to eat dinner nearby so we walked (40 minutes) into town where only 2 places were open.
The town experienced a major powercut but fortunately the motel had an auxiliary generator.
As a postscript, we attempted to eat at Coyotes Saloon - we arrived at around 6.20pm and the board outside advertised dinner specials until 6.30pm. The waitress said we were too late and would not serve the special to us without a word of explanation or apology - we had a pleasant meal at the Pizza and Pasta place next door!
