Hi Angela, Thank you for the comment on our rooms. Debbie and i designed and built the motel to the plan that we thought was the best after our years off travelling for work and staying in many motels. We are blessed to have such great team of girls working here.

This property was really great and we would definitely stay again. Nice big room which was really clean and tidy. The staff at reception were so friendly. And they have an amazing outdoor pool area which we loved.

Whoa thank you.

Friendly and welcoming staff. Had a restaurant where I could dine. Also had wine available to purchase in reception which saved me having to go to the bottle shop. Room was wonderful, had an outside area off the room with a little garden which was very relaxing. Water pressure in shower excellent. Couldn’t have asked for more, despite the property being located a little further from the supermarkets and other venues. Rest was what I wanted after a long drive. Would highly recommend.
