    I particularly liked the friendly manager.

    No face washer. I have always taken one and after so many times they supplying them did not bother. Also like to have a biscuit with my coffee (none supplied).

    I thought it was very expensive for such an old motel. You could book in after 2.00 pm but we got there and there was a sign on the door stating that reception was closed until 2.30pm.

    Very good

    Friendly personal service, with extra effort, for us (my daughter and I anyway). Clean and basic for what we expected.Minimal fuss check in and out. Fay(e) was lovely.

    A little bit spartan but otherwise as we expected. Thanks Fay(e)

    Price was lowest motel available

    Charging an extra $15 per head for extra occupants. Sorry but for the standard of the motel that is absolutely ridiculous. The most you should have to pay for this motel is $120 all up (current price for 2 occupants) another $15 a head. It is very very basic compared to the many hotels stayed at previously of a comparable price. Cork tiles on the walls of the shower...! No sink in the main room of a family room! Very dodgy mattresses. Obviously they have tried to cut many corners and claim it as a family room. The only saving grace was that it was clean. Certainly wouldn't be recommending...

    Superb

    Management was extremely helpful and pleasant. If there was anything i would say against the Motel is the Bed was not that comfortable - it felt hard. We were able to put up with that, but certainly value for money, and we will certainly be returning again.

    Upgrade of bed - as it was not that comfortable but we were able to deal with it for the time we were there. If we had stayed longer would have raised this with management.

    The room was nice and clean, it had an air conditioner, which worked very well, colour T.v and fridge. The bed was comfortable and the wardrobe was spacious.

    The laundry was very good and the bed comfortable.

    I can only describe this motel from the experience of my room. The room lacked basic maintainance, was in a poor decorative condition, not as clean as normal standards dictate and can best be described as tired and jaded. Sadly its location is directly on the main highway which prevents a good nights sleep. The advertisement on the web site is misleading, showing a swim pool that is only slightly bigger than my bath at home, and a facade that photographs well ( or did years ago !) but in reallity is equally as jaded as the interior. During my trip along the coast I stayed in several pre-booked motels, this is the only one that was disappointing, only for the fact that it was one nights stay and my wife was tired I would have asked for a refund and moved on.
