Booked this hotel in last minute, was a bit hesitate as from the pictures they put on the website its seems really old place. But need a place to stay overnight after long drive 10hrs from Sydney. Arrived after 10pm, heater was on! Thats something you need in cold night. Had nice complimentary coffee and biscuits. Apparently the place looks much better than from pictures, its so clean and smell fresh. And they have the best mattress! Its so comfy. I will definitely coming back..

Comfortable stay

The stay was comfortable and convenient with a very good hotel bistro next door. Only downside the bathroom is quite cold with a fan that automatically comes on when you turn on the light switch. I’ve suggested to the motel separate switch for the light and fan as it’s cool at night a heater( in the bathroom) would be nice too. There’s air conditioning in the room of course.

Thoughtful touches such as car windscreen cleaning equipment at entrance to each motel room. Very comfortable beds - we had a great night's sleep (and I'm a fussy sleeper) Good location and only two doors down from local pub which had excellent meals - the lamb cutlets were to die for and the wood fired pizzas are delicious.
