I liked the friendly face on arrival and the location was great. There was plenty of hot water for a shower. My only dislike was the fact that we only had three days there. If we were in the area again we will stay there again. The restaurant attached is nice and the food was really good and plentiful. The room we stayed in had no microwave which is a real oversight in these days for people on the move.

Good value for a comfortable bed for one-two nights. The owner is very accommodating. We like to take our own pillows. Lovely and quiet when we stayed on a Monday night. The price is very reasonable. Will stay again - next time will be our 3rd stay.

6/10 Good

I rang to ask for early access to room for 1:30pm instead of usual 2:30pm & nothing had been done about it. Though they had said it would be OK. Communication was very poor due to poor English. We were given a room where the cleaner had just started cleaning so that stressed her so she said there were other rooms available. He finally understood what we were asking for & gave us a room, as we needed to unload our car so we could put a wheelchair in it to take my mum out who lives locally. The room we were given had no overhead lights only one bedside light. The bathroom fan was so noisy & in need of repair. The plumbing in shower, hand basin & toilet all need fixing as constantly leaking. There was no toaster, no microwave to be able to fix your own breakfast in the morning. There were no glasses supplied only 3 teacups & a few milk samples, not enough to give yourself cereal. We take our own bowls & cutlery but would be good to have a basic set in a room. Beds were comfortable & generally the room was clean. We had recently stayed at smaller Motels that were $30 cheaper than what we paid here & they had all the amenities & facilities you need in a room for an overnight stay when travelling. So definitely not value for money here. I know the owners are only new but they need to fix up the basics in each room before doing major renovations as it’s often the little details that count.
