  • 8.0.Very good

    The room was huge which was a good thing, the beds are in very good condition. The only bad thing was that the microwave was dirty. The toilets look a bit old but were clean.

    Jing was very friendly and made an effort to give us a better deal as the room we were supposed to stay in had a problem with hot water. Our boys would love to stay at this place again. Thank you and see you next time.

    The staff were absolutely wonderful and treated us like valued guests! The rooms were cleaned to the hugest standard that I’ve ever seen in a motel. We highly recommend this motel and will definitely stay there again!

  • 6.0.Good

    Great location and decently sized rooms for a family of four. However room was dirty, very stained carpets, table and dresser and nightstands sticky with spilled milk residue so obviously not cleaned. Very concerning for these covid times not to have properly cleaned surfaces in the room. There was moldy food shoved inside of the handle of the fridge so had to open from the corner of the door. Coffee saucers and mugs were stained. Carpets were filthy and we had to keep our shoes on the whole time rather than walk on it. Bed was comfortable and clean however. Pool was nice but pool towels were hard to come by. Breakfast was very limited as no chef, so didn’t bother paying $10pp for a bowl of cereal. Great location tho as 2 mins from Sovereign Hill.
