We just needed an overnight stop and the choice was made based on being easy to find and off the main highway so it would be quiet. While we had booked "bigger" room than the standard ones, the space was still very limited and the bathroom very very small. That said - the room - while a bit old and tired - was clean and quiet and served the purpose for an overnighter.

Stayed here for two nights with around 10 other family members (5 rooms) for two nights on rally weekend. Managers were very quick at check in, which is always a plus. Rooms were perfect, spa bath, fridge/freezer, two TVs, quiet heat pump, nice outdoor chairs with cushions. Throughlly enjoyed this motel & thought it was a great size. Only down note I would have to write is definitely carpet needs cleaning or replacing & fix up scuffs in the wall when needed. Would definitely not stop me from staying here again. Until next time, Thank You

We booked this motel because we have stayed at this place many times before and been happy. However after this visit and the response from the owners we will not stay again. We paid $172 for a studio room ( this was more than we have paid previously) that was substandard in quality. It would barely rate two stars, see photos of the bathroom. Had trouble sleeping because there was a very bright light outside our room that we couldn’t turn off, it was still on at 11pm. The condition of the bathroom was terrible with a shower over the bath with poor water pressure and and old curtain. In the morning we found the fridge wasn’t working and our milk was warm. I spoke to the man on reception about the fridge and he said they would need to replace it. No apology for our spoilt food. I also spoke to him about the state of the room and he said we got an old room because we booked via booking.com and not directly with the motel! That our room was only worth $130 a night. If motels want to use Booking.com then they shouldn’t discriminate against the guest. Very poor service from this motel.

Thank you for taking the time to place your review we appreciate all feed back. Unfortunately as you booked your stay on the day you arrived we were unable to offer you any off our superior back quieter units as we were full. The fridge had not been bought to our attention and has now been replaced. Booking online through a 3rd party agency like booking.com is alway more expensive than booking direct with the motel as you incur commission charges.

This motel is quiet - handily placed- clean warm and quite luxurious. A lovely place to spend 3 weeks here on business. Managers are friendly and helpful. Will make sure to stay here in future. Rooms are modern - bathroom is very big with spa bath - big TVs in lounge and bedroom - free wireless internet is very good speed and connectivity.
