The property had a nice rural setting, my room looked onto the river. The room was comfortable and clean, and the restaurant provided served Australian and Chinese meals. My meal was freshly cooked, vegetables crisp and hot. Staff were friendly.

The motel is reminiscent of a Spanish mission, set in spacious, beautiful and well kept surroundings. The internal decor is a little dated, but the carpet looked like new and the room was a great size for we 3 adults and our 2 dogs. The onsite restaurant was a great feature of the site and provided us with delicious meals delivered to our door. Overall we were happy with our stay and would come again.

The motel is very dated. Our room was very dirty, had not been vacuumed. A few dead bugs on the floor. An ear bud and rag under the bed. Cobwebs in the bathroom. Shower had a leak that sprayed on the roof and dripped cold water on my head in the shower. Young girl at check in was very nice. Would not stay again.

Property is old and tired. Being operated on a shoestring budget. Room not clean. Lipstick & mascara marks on pillowcases which could have been a laundering issue. Curtains ripped. Shower had mould on grout in tiles. The room is very basic and very small. Had dinner at the restaurant & drink in the bar. Bar menu limited. Food menu was typical 3 star offering. Food cooked nicely but steak tough & poor quality. When we left we noticed there was a very extensive Chinese menu which we weren't offered. One staff to look after the reception phone, the bar and serve in the restaurant. Watched 2 lots of guests walk into the bar and walk out again as no one there to serve them. Evening staff member very friendly but untrained & not unskilled. The day staff member unfriendly and unhelpful on check in. No one was in reception when we checked out at 8.30am. Can't recommend this Motel. Needs a major refurbishment & a professional operator.
