Stayed for 3 nights in this well located motel. It covers all bases for us - friendly staff, clean rooms, comfortable bed, microwave/crockery etc to make our own breakfast and quiet. The pool was a bonus which we enjoyed after sightseeing the district. There is a large shopping centre across the road and a couple of pubs within easy walkinv...

While this establishment has the usual motel units as well, the period home that has been divided up into two apartments is the pick because you are unlikely to find accommodation like this amongst the usual generic options. With two bedrooms and a cosy living area, it is like being at home and an expansive veranda caps it off, together...

The renovated period home, split in half, is the pick here, as it offers unusual home-like accommodation and a spacious layout, in an apartment format, for an affordable price. Attractively maintained gardens and a relaxed veranda too-none of it feels like a traditional 'motel'. Very pleasant host and the shopping mall and food outlets just across the road.

From the photos and reviews we thought that we were staying at a Federation property. Did not realise until we arrived that Fitzroy House was a small separate building and only a very small part of the Fitzroy Motor Inn. Rest of the motel- at least the room we stayed in was quite ordinary and had nothing to distinguish it...

Hi, Sorry to hear your disappointment regarding your stay. I do believe our advertising and photos show we are a 3.5 star Motel with an adjoining Federation House which is also on the property. This house maybe booked as a whole House for 13 people or split into two two bedroom apartments. We then have 22 motel rooms in our...

The host and hostess including the staff members were very helpful and considerate for giving us essential info for the Jacaranda Festival, and for storing our luggage after our checkout as our train would not depart until that evening to Sydney. The facilities were/are well provided and maintained. And the room was spacious enough for a family with a 5-year...

This is a good distance from Sydney- 600km - so needed to rest here overnight. Found the Motel clean comfortable and hosts welcoming. Best of all the lighting in the room was BRIGHT and not the usual 20w bedside light found so often in motels. Because we ordered a cooked breakfast and put our order in the wrong place it...

Not only was the room clean and comfortable, the ladies who checked us in were friendly, helpful and kind. How nice to be greeted like a friend, especially after a long days' drive. I would highly recommend this motel to stay a night or more. The town is unspoiled by tourism and has some lovely old buildings.

We had a one night stay on our way up the coast. Friendly and informative service. Close walk to shops. Room was very clean and comfortable. Can I just say, great showers and water pressure. Will definitely stop here again.

Motel rated 3.5 stars but lucky to be 3 star. Room was very basic with tiny bathroom and light on all night outside the room. Although the cost was reasonable it should be sold as budget accommodation. To add to the disappointing room we had to park on the street. In need of a renovation. Not good enough.

Hi, So sorry to hear you were disappointed in your stay, we very rarely get negative reviews such as this. Sadly the car parking is such as in every establishment unless its paid for parking that you cannot control the number of cars per room parked nor guarantee parking when returning late at night. The lights outside the rooms along...
