OK stay.
TV was reception was a bit patchy with fuzziness wifi was a bit weak for the chalet but other wise comfortable expect noise as this is a truck stop

Exceptional 10.0
This is a truckers roadhouse, but don't let that stop you considering it for a stay - I was in a converted shipping container - not that you'd know it from the inside. Neat, well equipped, comfortable and warm with a good bathroom. For an overnight stop on the way through it was perfect. Parking is easy so if you have a trailer, caravan or long load this is the place for you.

Shaky Start But a Great Stay
We had trouble getting into the Unit at first, as it was the holidays the office was not manned but the information very clear that we were staying in Room 3. But keycards would not work for Room 3, and then it turns out someone was already in Room 3 - they had been given Room 4 but the cards did not work for that room either so they found a working one for Room 3 and took that. The cleaner Wendy came to sort it all out, she was super helpful and got us into Room 5. The room was super clean, and very comfortable and we had no issues with the room at all. Wendy also warned us to keep the keycard away from mobile phones as it wipes the card, we did this but on our 2nd night the card would not work to access the room but after calling we were told the location of a spare card which worked. Probably all of this would be not an issue when the office is normally manned, but a better keycard system might be worth having. Also - the location on the map is incorrect, it shows the Motel as being inside town whereas the location is actually outside of town to the south near Brancott Estate.

Great stay except..
We had one of the small self contained cabins, which was great except that the outdoor nation area did not have a cover and therefore was exposed to the rain and unusable.
