A quirky place! The owners have a menagerie - dogs, a parrot, chickens and a pet lizard. The lady at reception gave me good intel about the local taverns and restaurants. The room was clean and had air-con and a comfy bed.

The Motel is older that has had a facelift but it is still a very basic type of accommodation. It has little to offer other than a place to sleep
Verified Wotif guest review

8/10 Very good

It was fine apart from two things. The wifi was very unreliable, never fast, often totally unavailable. The lighting was not good. No bedside lamps, the only light switch was by the door, meaning stumbling in the dark getting to and from the bed. Apart from that, everything worked.
