Good 6.0
Friendly staff, nice and clean, would be fine for the normal price of $113,but as it was Easter Sunday, it was $180.Way overpriced, but no other choice. Place is dated, and small, saviour for us was a great night at Ploughman's Pub, just a couple of doors down.

Exceptional 10.0
School Holidays 2017
We stayed in 10 motels /hotels on our trip and this one was the best of the lot. Is a small little place without too much extra but felt like home. Got a nice little breakfast pack when we arrived which was eaten in the morning, nice and quiet . Beds were comfortable and the place was nice and tidy. A little walk from the lakefront city but only 5 minute drive. Would rate it as one of the best places I have stayed for years. If you are after a place with a nice homely feel and want to relax this is the place

Good value for money
Staff was very nice, the room was spacious and had all the necessary items. On the other hand it is far from the CBD (for walking), no air-conditioning (we did not need one) and it is a bit old.
