By far the best motel we stayed in on our trip. Pros: Nice extra touches in the bathroom such as the magnifying mirror attached to the wall. Soap as well as shower gel provided. Also had plenty of space for our toiletries bags next to the sink. Our room was spacious with good size fridge. Lovely view of the trees and sky whilst laying on the bed of our room upstairs. Close to Coles, Target, and restaurants.. Cons: Small crack in toilet seat (Room 156). Crossing the road to get to the shops (a small town with big city traffic).

There was no room servicing over the weekend, even though we were still paying full price, and no notification of no service.

Dear guest, Our sincere apologies for your inconvenience. We do have room service over the weekend, but the housekeepers would have missed your room. We guarantee you it won't repeat again. If you could place your room service sign outside the door, that would make easy for our staff. Once again please accept our sincere apologies for your inconvenience.

The light switches did not work in Room 149 for some reason. The power box said everything was switched on. I was only there overnight so no major dramas. Other than that a great place.

First room smelt like vomit, second room was ok except for dead cockroach on floor and dirty toilet. TV reception not to good, train noise (tracks 10m from bedroom) a treat during the early hours of the morning.
