“Excellent Motel”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

My son and I stayed at the homestead motel as it was my birthday. We were warmly welcomed by Diane and hubby. Diane showed us to our room and had turned the heater on so our room was lovely and warm when we arrived. The motel is really nice and very clean. The beds are nice and very comfortable. We had a big corner spa bath in our room and it was very nice. This motel was extremely clean and above my expectations. Theres alot of attention to detail in this motel right down to the little drink coasters on the bedside tables to the embrossed toilet paper. I would highly recommend this wonderful motel to anyone. Thank you Diane and hubby we look forward to coming back.

Room Tip: We stayed in a spa studio and it was great. :)

was given an upgraded room at the studio price, as staff were of sick, not all the rooms had been cleaned. $115 room with a spa bath and a kitchen. Walking distance to a restaurant next door and town. The info book was very informative on recommendations to restaurants and attractions. Staff also recommended which restaurant to go too.Wireless internet was free. The morning paper was free

We recently stayed 5 nights in one of the lovely new apartments. We had absolutely everything we needed. Full kitchen, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer.
The apartment was very clean, warm, modern, and extremely comfortable.
We really appreciated the unlimited free Wi-Fi and the big super comfy bed.
The management staff were very helpful, friendly and obliging.

I would very highly recommend this accommodation.

This is beautiful! The room we had opened up into beautiful manicured gardens and down a short path was the great spa and further down the path was the massive pool!

We loved staying here it was so romantic, the decor of the room and the exposed beams really made this place a memorable stay! We felt like we were on a small Island!

The rooms were large and the bathrooms were clean and big!

I Visited the Homestead with a couple of other Motor cyclists as part of a tour. On arrival the manager offered us the use of his garage overnight for the bikes, something that is always appreciated by us.
Of particular attraction to us was the fact that it was only a short walk to the main shopping street and restaurants. Again this is very good when travelling on a motorcycle as you do not want to be clothing up again for the evening meal.
The motel units are located in park like grounds with a large fenced swimming pool and sun lounger recliner area. There is a new complex of 6 units available at a higher rate but offering all modern facilities, double glazing etc. for those seeking an upmarket holiday.
Our Studio rooms were well appointed, clean and comfortable. There was a brick paved patio outside the ranch slider with a table and chairs and a view into the gardens. The rooms are timber lined which creates a warm atmosphere. Albeit there were a few bangs in the night presumably from the timbers contracting in the cooler air.
Free Wi-Fi was good, enabling me to check on emails and read the morning paper. There was sufficient cutlery and crockery to cook a meal if wanted however the cooking facilities were limited to a microwave and a single portable hot plate.
In the bathroom the shower was over the bath and would have been restrictive to anyone unable to step over the bath. There is however a disability unit available with a separate shower if this was a requirement. The water flow rate in the show was restricted but on the good side it was almost instantly hot, no waiting for cold water to flush though.
The staff were above average on hospitality and friendly attitudes. Rob and Diane made us feel very welcome and would be one of the reasons I would return again. Even the motel cleaners were sociable, to the point that I had to give them rides around the forecourt on my Bike for photo shoots.
In all an enjoyable stay and well worth a return visit.
