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.

We found the unit tired and in need of maintenance. The brown carpet was dirty and stained and the kitchen unit could do with updating. We wouldn’t recommend this motel as it is not up to the standard of other BK’s motels that we have stayed in previously.

A worn and tired lodge. The cupboards in the kitchen were loose and the bathroom cupboard was chipped and holes in the flooring. Only one bedside table and lamp. Not worth the money and can't recommend it att all.

Convenient location, soundproof room with door closed, and a spacious disability bathroom. This is an older but well kept motel with excellent hosts who take bookings over the phone. This is our second stay here in the past 3 weeks. It's very well priced with parking at the door with easy wheeled access into the unit. A small kitchenette with fridge, jug, toaster, microwave, dishes. Reverse cycle air conditioning. Be hard to beat for the price. Table and chairs provided outside rooms.

I stayed three nights for business in the larger unit, all of the decent places in town were full. The smell in the unit was a combination of stale cigarettes and sour milk. I purchased a scented candle to burn the whole time I was in the unit because it was really off putting. The drawer in the bathroom vanity had smears of toothpaste and hair, the bedside table had hair and dust. On the first day my dishes were cleaned and put away (comprising of a tea cup, a wine glass, and a plate). On the second day they were not. The bin in the kitchen was emptied but the bathroom one was not. An upgrade is needed, as well as perhaps some retraining of the housekeepers.

Clean, tidy and friendly staff including the house keeper. We stayed in the large room which had two single beds, a queen bed, large bathroom, kitchen and living room with table and chairs. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Slight road noise despite being at the back of the property, however nothing to be concerned about. 5/5!

Very rude and unfair. They gave me a booking and then decided two days before that they need to cancel it. with absolutely no fault I end up with without a booking two days before the trip. They don't even bother picking up the phone, they send me an email like you have no booking now sorry 2 days before the booking date.

Stayed for 2 nights in large studio. Very clean with all that we needed, kitchenette with microwave and great water pressure in shower. We found the bed a little lumpy/soft (like sleeping on the couch) otherwise everything was fine.

Stayed for 2 nights in a large studio - it had a queen bed, 2 singles a lounge, kitchen with all the basics and a table and chair set. Bathroom was very large - everything was clean in this unit. Bed was comfortable. Staff were friendly but kept knocking on the room each morning about 9am to see if we wanted anything....nice to be asked but not when you are tired fronm travelling and dont want to be woken at that time. Need do not disturb signs!! The motel room was tired looking and needs updating.

I wouldn't stay here again in a hurry Really really noisy from the road, trucks going through all the time. Units are very tired & need a lot spent on them to get them anywhere up to speed. This would be a last resort to stay at, only cos of the street noise

Owen was very helpful when speaking to him on the phone. He was able to book us in a room last minute in the busy holiday period. The room was clean, tidy and comfortable. Upon arrival the fans had been switched on and the milk stored in the fridge which was great on a hot summers evening. We relaxed the evening away in a huge bath with jets which was fabulous. Staff are extremely friendly and the room was reasonably priced. Will defintly be back to stay 😊 😊 Happy New Years!
