This property had everything we needed, it was lovely, clean and spacious. Owners have taken that extra step to make it feel like a home with their choice of furnishings. We would stay here again.

Hi Jessica, thank you for your review.

Our unit (particularly the bathroom) was in need of renovation - definitely not "Deluxe" as per the sign at the front of the motel. However, it was clean, quiet and is only a short walk to shops.

The motel does not allow arrangements for late check-in (after 8pm) so I wasted my money. Wotif's email said closing was 8pm and to contact the motel to arrange late check-in. The message needs to be 'No check-in after 8pm'.
