The staff were exceptionally friendly and the hospitality A1. The room was clean but like myself is showing its age and could do with some cosmetic upgrades. But ultimately clean, comfortable and well equipped - also like me!!!!

At $180 per night I was expecting a clean, modern apartment. What you get is two old motel rooms with an out dated bathroom, with mould and built up grim around the shower. The toilet is behind the door which hits the person using the toilet when opened. The carpet was dirty. The light for the bedroom was at the permantly closed old main door - not at the entrance door. So when you walked into the bedroom from the lounge kitchen area you had to walk the entire lenght of the room to turn the light on. There were lots of other little things thoughout the room that added up to a very disappointing night. The pool was not available for use with no reasons given. The advertising photo's are very deceptive. The motel does not have a maned reception. The key is obtained from a machine. Which is okay for after hours but Very disappointing in the 9 to 5 time frame. I cannot recommend this place as the price does not reflect the conditions.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. The issues you have raised have been taken onboard and housekeeping will be reviewed in relation to the cleanliness of the room. The motel does have a manned Reception which is usually open to receive guests checking in between 2pm and 7pm, being a small family run establishment there are some times that it is unavoidable that it is left unmanned while staff attend to other duties. This is the reason that we provide 24hr access via the machine to minimise inconvenience to our guests. There is also a contact number displayed if guests required assistance at these times. We apologise that the pool was not available for use at the time of your stay, unfortunately we had issues with equipment failure and were forced to close it while this was being attentioned. We understand that your stay was not to the standard that you expected and again thank you for your honest review that enables us to look at how we can improve our services. Kind Regards
