3/5 Okay

Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Ok for a one night stay.Friendly welcome.Renovated older style room. Unfortunately sound of conversations can be heard through the wall which must be single brick construction.Bit disappointing to hear raised and not so raised voices,coughing during the night as well.Surprised by this

Good value for money, rooms were clean and spacious and the beds were extremely comfortable. The room had everything you could need from a fridge, microwave, kettle & toaster as well as hair dryer, iron and ironing board. There is a laundry on site with a small $3 fee per load, and detergent provided which meant we could wash our clothes there and go home without smelly or wet clothes in the car. The staff were almost nowhere to be seen but that could be due to COVID. The pool was also locked up, we didn’t ask why but possibly also due to COVID. Continental breakfast was included, most things were individually packaged to be COVID safe which was good to see. It’s a drive to the closest shops so would be good if they had a vending machine to buy snacks from. Other than that we were really happy with our stay and would stay here again!

Outstanding value for money
We are travelling around NSW & while this motel was slightly outside our meagre budget it was more than worth it. Check in was very efficient & assistance to obtain a QLD Border pass, should we have needed one, was also offered. First impressions of the room were that it was clean & tidy & while not overly spacious there was sufficient room. The bathroom, whilst being compact, was very clean & in great condition. What really stood out for us was the quality bedding, which was probably one of the best we have ever used in accommodation. Also included in the price was a continental breakfast with the best covid 19 processes we have encountered on our trip. We ended up extending our stay for a 3rd night & can honestly say this motel is one of the cleanest & most comfortable we have ever stayed in and is exceptional value for money. The only negative is its proximity to the airport & being in the flight path.
