very friendly staff but unfortunately the room was not to our expectations. The bed was very soft and only a double and there was nowhere to sit except for the bed as there was no lounge or table and chairs

Friendly staff, good price however walls are paper thin hence if next unit is occupied it can get quite noisy especially when shower is being used. Also the fridge is very loud. Interior is a tad aged and could use an upgrade but for a quick budget overnight it’s adequate.

The motel is being renovated. We had a worksite right at our door. Loud noise and the power was turned off at 8:00 am. No power for kettle, no lights, a/c etc. had to ask tradies why did it happen? We came back at 4:00 pm to find a note to tell us about it! Big crack in the wall. TV pixelated at night.
