Fair 4.0
Better Options for the Price
Stayed in 'The Cottage' and it was quite ordinary. Everything looking worn. Hole in lounge suite. Settee on porch repaired with sticky tape. Sheets appeared clean enough, but the rest of the bedding - duvets & blankets - visible that all needed a good wash and smelt less than fresh. If I was paying a budget price I would expect budget accom, but expected better than this for the price we paid (around A$250 per night). It also appeared that some rooms at the motel are being long-term let to WINZ benefit recipients, which certainly didn't add to the ambience of the place.

Really great motel
Only had one night here but room 7 that we had was lovely. It was very clean with a really large comfy bed, you had everything you needed. It also had a private patio with a table and chairs. The thermal pool was great and you could lock the door so you were the only ones in there.

Jump straight into the spa!
Room was clean and spacious with car parking right outside. The spa was an unexpected bonus and we were right next to it. Receptionist was friendly. Local area was nice and we went into town for dinner which was an easy drive. There was a bit of a storm when we stayed but the noise was minimal.

Get a room close to office if you want WiFi
Staff was nice and helpful. However, we had issues with the first room we were given. WiFi was spotty at best (we were in room 7). Curtains had holes, room had ants, no tissues in room, shower temp would fluctuate so that I had to jump out of stream of water. We got moved to bigger room closer to office. That improved our WiFi and no ants, but other room issues existed. For example the sliding front door would not slide without a lot of effort and the towel rack was not secure to wall. Staff did their best to accommodate us though.
