Astral is very clean, had a great heater, good sized rooms, very accommodating proprietors and excellent value. Locality was great with a short drive to the CBD and routes out of the city. Will definitely stay there again, D Fuller.

Michael the manager was very friendly and helpful and offered a good rate. Rooms are comfortable enough with Free Wi-Fi and Sky TV and modern TV. Whole place is like 1980's (style and fittings) but perfectly functional for a night or three. All Good overall just expect small town oldie worldie B-)

An older motel a good drive from the CBD area so a car is necessary to venture out for dinner. There is a Z service station just around the corner though slim pickings for much else that end of town.
It’s quiet with ample off street parking, plenty of customers booked in the night I stayed judging from all the cars parked up. The room is adequate, clean as best you can in an out-dated motel where an upgrade of the room would probably raise the price somewhat I guess. Had a comfortable nights rest with early departure pre-arranged with the guy in the Office no hassle and friendly to deal with.
Taps in the hand basin drip despite how hard you turn them off, obviously in need of replacement washers. Shower is very good with plenty of pressure. My studio unit was basic with tea and coffee making about it but for the price when passing through quite acceptable accommodation for just 1 night. (under $90).
This Motel is a good stop-over for a night to recharge while travelling but not for a holiday.

Room Tip: Unit 1 is closest to the road with the river across the road.
