The hotel has closed down. Nobody, including Wotif, decided to tell us this before we arrived at 10:30pm.

No playground, no wi-fi

I chose this hotel for it's advertised 'on-site playground'. Apparently it'd been damaged and no longer exsists. There is no wi-fi, which I didn't check for. Very basic.

handy to S.A. Border

Pros: Very little,
Cons: Everything needs a thorough upgrade or renewal
Location: I was born and raised in this town and know it well - depends on what you want but one day spent here would cover it.
Only very average, no bedside lamps or clock radio, bathroom desperately needed doing over, serve yourself breakfast in another room handy but cereals were not marked so had to guess, 2 sachets of marmalade put out and we were the first partakers, people following would not know you had to knock on a door and ask - no signs put up to know how to request assistance, 2 teabags of the good tea, the rest was just the usual. I signed the guest book and registered my dissatisfaction and received a phone call when I was only a few kms down the road, things were discussed and the reason for lack of the above was that it 'got stolen by the travellers'. Yes, I can go along with that but still unsatisfactory. When I arrived on the day I inquired as to whether I had parked correctly in accordance with their signs only to be told I was ok as the next 3 rooms were not going to be occupied, however that night the no vacancy was showing all night! Not happy Jan!!

No thanks I don't want to as this is pointless because it doesn't have to work with the app but it doesn't even work at all so it's ok

Comfortable and convenient!

Our room was basic but clean and comfortable with all the necessities. Continental breakfast in the dining room was included in the very reasonable tarriff. A convenient place to stay on our Adelaide to Melbourne journey.

On a Very busy Highway that sounds like a Airport

Pros: The Bathroom was clean, and a good water flow.
Cons: A very good go over with a paint brush, new carpet. And maybe some yoghurt with the continental breakfast.
Location: We thought the location was good, and the Cafe on the corner near the public toilets was fantastic, Great coffee and food, and Olive Oil to die for.
No sleep, you are sure a Jumbo jet is coming thru your room all night long, no gardens to speak of, every thing is in need of a paint and replacement.This is not an insult but a fact.

Not bad for a halfway stop

Great place half way to Adelaide, staff extremely friendly. Motel rooms, clean but looking a bit tired and dated.
