Lovely motel. Would recommend.
Really nice older style motel. Very roomy. Furnishings could do with an update but are still very comfortable and offer a surprisingly good night's sleep. Restaurant is fabulous. Wait staff are very knowledgeable of the menu and their advice is spot on.

Quiet, quality and spacious
Huge rooms, set back from the highway so it's super quiet. Plenty of parking for long vehicles/trailers. Simple and tidy fit-out, gradually getting improvements every time we stay. Staff are very accommodating. Onsite restaurant is handy. Just keep the doors shut... country bugs zoom in quickly!

An unexpected gem of a motel
This motel was great. The room was large and felt comfortable as soon as we entered. My rating of ok for service was because we didn't need to use any services. The layout of the facility was very good with a large open grassed area in the middle of the buildings. The room had 2 entrances, one from parking space the other from the grassed area. I would stay there again.

It would have been nice for the air conditioning to be on upon arrival. It was very hot and took a long time for the air conditioning to cool the room down

Sliding Doors
Helpful & friendly service at reception & restaurant, food nice if a little odd ingredients (sliced roast pork on top of a beef hamburger? Maybe an interpretation of a bacon burger? Also, liquid cheese sauce?). Pool & grounds were nice & quiet. Only negative was the bathroom door was a sliding type (noisy) with no lock and kept falling off its tracks (forgot to tell reception - room 25 I think?). Good spot for an overnight break if driving up or down the coast.
B, au1 night family trip

Great sized rooms with easy parking for two vehicles in the family accommodation.

The hotel while basic needs a lit of work on outside and inside of rooms. The bed in our room had wire poking through that scratched ne back and leg when I got in and out of bed. The pillows where old and stained. The caroet was stretched,ripped and frayed. Dissapointed . The bathroom was clean and tidy. The restaurant was quite nice.
