Very clean, everything needed included with WiFi, tea/coffee, TV and king sized bed. Buzz to see staff, otherwise you kist collect the key yourself. Games room and pool. Nothing super new and fancy, but very well kept and everything in good condition, stress free.

Cons: A sign for travellers to indicate turn off for motel when arriving at night. As we passed the street twice looking for motel only sign for company.
Hotel was nice shame nowhere to eat as per information re restaurant available this only open for functions now. It is a drive back to get food to eat and as arriving late pre order for breakfast closed at 7.30pm....Need to order by 2.30pm on day of arrival... Other than that nice area quiet and peaceful. Staff very friendly.

No problems with motel, but we didn’t see anyone. Paid on line, note on reception door and keys in nominated room. No evening meal facilities close, but a good breakfast in ANSTO restaurant which closes at 5.00PM. At night we were only car in sight and no one else staying in motel. On leaving, still no reception. Accommodation v/good but whole episode a bit weird.

Thank you for your feed back Frank. As a large percentage of our guests are researchers, sometimes it seems the Motel is empty, but actually we are always full and quite busy.

Motel in the Bush near Nuclear Reactor

Pros: Clean & Tidy and quiet.
Cons: Having some sort of food outlet onsite, as there is nothing in the area.
Location: Located in bushland.
Motel was clean and tidy, without meal outlets. Guests need to bring their own food or travel some K's to source food. Facilities on site are pretty basic but clean. Reception Staff seemed afraid of intruders, by keeping access door to Reception locked during normal working hours with Staff locked inside, very unusual. Enjoyed the peacefulness of the site. Other Guests had brought their own Bacon/Eggs/Rolls for a BBQ breakfast which they shared with us. Otherwise we would have had to seek breakfast a fair distance away.

Thank you for your feedback. Being in a rural area, wildlife has been known to stroll through the Motel, but we do hope to see you again.

Floor boards creaked (badly) near the bed. Even though its supposed to be a secure car-park your car is still fifty meters away from your room. No trolley (for old people) to cart your bags from your car to your room. To contact reception you must ring for assistance. The room was nice and clean. The reception lady was very friendly. Its a quiet area no traffic noise. I would like to have given the Motel a higher rating but it does have its faults. 'Oh' and no microwave in the room only in the games room. Cheers

Location: Local cafe closed over the weekend. Which makes it a bit out of the way for food etc if you do not have transport
A little old fashioned but suited our purpose very nicely. Comfortable and quite with excellent swimming pool . A little out of the way on a weekend

Excellent one night stay

Pros: Location very convenient for us. Close to Sutherland area but very quiet.
Cons: Shower wasn’t the best with the nozzle short and coming out straight out of the wall.
Location: Close to Menai shopping centre with good shopping facilities and places to eat.
Arrived about 6:30 pm and although reception not manned, our room was ready and easy to find. Ccmfortable, clean room with everything we needed for overnight stay. Pleasant quiet location among the gumtrees.
