4/5 Good

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Proximity to river and town. Best rooms for river view upstairs and towards back . Very old but somewhat renovated. The upside is that it was the largest room I have seen in a Motel in a very long time. No problems at all,

Tidy motel but staff had an attitude
Room was spacious tidy and clean. Checked-in at night and the lady at the reception was kind. However after we reversed into our parking space a male staff promptly came over and rudely said "You were ASKED to do head in only!" No mate I wasn't told anything at check in. In all fairness there was a little sign on the roof on the other side that says "Reverse parking not permitted"(i'm the blue car parked on the side as pictured, you can see the sign on the right with yellow letters). Perhaps they should just give a heads up at check in, or put bigger signs at every bay? Or maybe he assumed that I was told at check in, thus is angry? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ tldr: tidy rooms, but one of the staff was quite rude
