Thank you for the feedback. It sounds like you stayed in our budget double which is our smallest room and only has a double bed in it.

Reasonably quiet if you stay out the back wing. 50 words are too many to request.

Thought I had a nice quiet room. Turns out the rainwater downpipe just outside my door is very noisy some 3 hours after the rain stopped. Next morning some tradies started their very large and very loud diesel powered 3 tonne truck at 7:20am, then left the engine running right outside my door (unattended) right up until I checked out at 8am.

The only complaint was that the comment I wanted to ask the motel wasn't sent through to them and we were given an upstairs room when I requested a downstairs room. The manager was happy to change our room when we got to the motel complex, which I thought was very nice of the manager. The check-in was easy. Our room was clean. Check-out was easy.

An overnight stay in the middle of winter with small children. Great sized room, good heating although a draught under the door. Very clean bathroom and plenty of extra blankets and pillows. Located on a main road and close to takeaway and the pub. Very happy customers.
