We stayed for 5 nights. The owners are so welcoming and will do everything to make your stay comfortable. They really do go above and beyond. They are currently renovating and the motel is looking very smart. I would happily stay again.

This motel was so easy to find it was right there when you drove into town great.
I wasn't very happy with the bathroom as it had no window ventilation and smelt by the end of a day when it had been shut up. The bed was good and the bits and pieces for eating (plates cups etc) were what was needed. One couldn't get the jug under the tap very easily and I put it in with a cup.

Room Tip: try and get one along the drive not at the end.

This was quite a nice surprise for being so reasonably priced, especially compared with where we are tonight for same price.
We wished we could stay longer.
Very good value for money.
Warm and sunny, and modern facilities. Everything was beyond expectation.

We were greeted with a friendly and helpful face and our room had been renovated well. Lovely new carpets throughout, modern kitchen unit with all amenities including a large electric frypan, microwave, hotplates and other standard appliances. Beds were lovely like it said on the sign 'the best beds in town' and all for $150 - 3 adults and one almost teenager. I was so pleased that it was luxurious and comfortable. We booked this last minute as family we were staying with couldn't accommodate us and we booked in for a second night once we saw the place. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place. A big thumbs up from me.

The Colonial on Gladstone was well located central to town - yet quiet, very warm and comfortable and well equipped for 4 of us & our 4 small dogs. Newly renovated & spacious (we had a family unit so 2 kids had a separate bedroom) and very accommodating hosts. Many thanks.
