Great for a short stay!
As usual, this motel met our expectations. Strong focus on avoidance of contact due to COVID and easy check-in procedure by SMS just before check-in time. We have stayed at this motel a number of times in the past. Easy walking distance to 3 Sisters and we walked into town for dinner in the evening. On site parking and good wifi. Good communications from the owner.

The fact it was clean and well maintained, old school charm. On site parking and close proximity to all the 3 sisters sites and walking tracks. Great value stay. lack of catering other than tea and coffee and small fridge wasn't a problem as it encouraged us to go into town and try some of the great food places there.
