Being 10 yards from the river and getting the breeze off the water really makes this motel.The RSL has just been renovated and the food is good

We had a comfortable two days at the Black Swan & the owners/proprietors were very accommodating. Nothing too much trouble for them.

Very noisy off the main highway bed was uncomfortable and I don’t believe the sheets had been changed . Old fan and air con need replacing but cleaning them would be a start .

Our standard rooms are roadside and we also offer waterfront at a higher rate - as for your comment on the sheets this is highly offensive - as one can see from all our reviews we have a extremely high standard - cannot understand why you did not make comment to the office staff - fans are cleaned on a regular basis may need some repainting but are always clean - hope you have more success with travels in the future and find enjoyment in life
