Positive Reviews

A daily room service is appreciated

Guests like that there is a daily housekeeping service. This means the rooms are replenished daily with fresh towels and supplies, not to mention that they take away the rubbish too.

Excellent service from the staff

You will find that the staff are friendly and helpful. They provide a good service on reception, dealing with check in efficiently, and will do everything they can to make things easy for guests and ensure that they have a comfortable stay.

Good room facilities

Guests find that they have everything they need for their stay. They like that there are useful items for them to use, such as an iron and hairdryer. Kitchen facilities are good so you will be able to prepare meals and snacks if you like and will not always have to eat out.

Negative Reviews

Cleaning could be improved

The motel is not as spotlessly clean as guests would like. Issues in rooms included bathroom floors being grubby, grouting being mouldy, and mirrors needing a polish. Worse still, there have been reports of cigarette ends needing sweeping up outside and the pool had not been cleaned daily.

Could use some updating

Not all rooms have been updated and as a result, some guests thought that their rooms would have benefitted from being upgraded, particularly the bathrooms and kitchens, although they were perfectly serviceable.

No air conditioning at this hotel

For a motel that is located in a hot part of Australia, the lack of air conditioning has been a bit of an inconvenience to some guests. This is especially so bearing in mind it is recommended that balcony doors and windows are closed during the night in case insects come into the room.
