Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a motel...it is fine and was clean. We enjoyed the whirlpool tub and if we needed handicap access we pull have been happy with the room.

Glad it has a mini split also as we were right by the road and didn’t want to sleep with open windows.

The staff was pleasant. We would stay here again.

This is a modern new Motel. It is quite small (looks like a large modern house from the road) so it feels a lot homelier, not noisy. Rooms are more like apartments. They are clean, large and modern. I was in a single bedroom, with separate lounge. My colleague was in a 3 bedroom apartment.....fantastic - full kitchen, with huge dining and lounge area and only $40 more per night. Leather lounge and dining suites, huge TV, and at excellent value (in a town where it seems some other motels/hotels are charging more than the facility is really worth). It could be quite noisy being on a busy main road, but I was in a back room, so it was ok.

our 1 bedroom apartment was spotlessly clean. enjoyed a spa bath after a day of travelling. the rooms are at the back of complex so there is no road noise, it was very quiet. Charlie was very welcoming when we arrived at 7.30pm. would stay here again as it is close to city.

We loved this motel. The service was friendly and efficient and considering what is going on with the aftershocks from the earthquakes in the perfect position. We stayed all together 5 nights and the manager was keen with information, travel, shopping and dining. He held our luggage while we took the drive to beautiful Hanmer Springs, gave us driving directions and plenty of places to visit. Thanks Charlie and to your family our many thanks.

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which we had an extra guest in the lounge. There was plenty of room for everyone. There is also cooking facilities in the apartment which was great.

I am very fussy when it comes to motel housekeeping, but i have to say I could not fault them at all. A very pleasent stay.

The host were very friendly and helpful. Top marks

Stayed here overnight on business (room 6, 1 brm) and was surprised at how spacious, clean & tidy the apartment was. It has a well appointed kitchen, large LCD TV with Sky, comfortable king bed?, 3 seater sofa, dining table seated for two people and a nice modern, good sized bathroom with a spa bath/shower. Nice warm apartment with a heat pump if needed. Close (1 kilometre or so) to Bush Inn Centre eateries.
