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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I must admit I was not sure what to expect when I booked this motel. I’ll happily admit I was pleasantly surprised. Easy to find and well located. Friendly host. Clean and tidy parking area. The room itself was spotless. Although I was only there for one night, it left me with a positive impression and I’ll very happily stay there again.

Although clean, the facilities are a bit old. With two adults and two older children the so called quadruple family room was too small to be comfortable. It would be better with three. There were only three chairs for the dining table! The heat pump was noisy, especially in the middle of the night. Service was helpful. The road noise can be distracting at times.

I thought it was great. I had stayed at the Aspree a couple of weeks earlier and thought the Aztec a lot better, and fantastic value. It was quieter as it's away from the noisy main highway so I slept better. The room was better, towels were bigger and softer, the staff were nicer.

Very comfortable and excellent value. I was having a terrible time with a family member in hospital and the owners could not do enough to help me in my situation. They were amazing. The shower was lovely, smart tv and bed was very comfortable. Right near the hospital so perfect for family members.

Excellent value motel - slightly older fittings in places, but room had smart TV and individual air con/heat pump unit. Clean and tidy throughout. Pool area looking a wee bit forlorn, but maybe that was the weather that day. Showers simply amazing - maybe the best hotel/ motel shower I have had in a long time. Can’t argue with the value for money, at $108 for two adults and a child its a bargain!

Very comfortable and cosy hotel. Room is clean. Shower is superb. Not too far from city centre. Owner is friendly. We overslept and they were cool about it. There's a gas station nearby in case you need to grab anything in the middle of the night.

Stayed here for 2 nights on a business trip. Nice clean and tidy room. Room had air conditioning. Comfortable bed. Nice pressure in the shower. But the light outside the room made getting a sleep harder than I would like.

We were pleasantly surprised when we went into the room. It was a family room with a separate bedroom. A little dated, however it was clean and tidy and warm. Although being on a main road, it was relatively quiet. Parking right out the front. Reception was welcoming. We’d stay here again if passing through PN.
