Great value for money, complementary in-room continental Breakfast each day. Rooms are very clean, modern feel, looks like they where upgraded not long ago. Great pub next door, with very nicely priced meals. Right o n the highway. Only downside is that parking is a bit tight, with trucks and trailers, but well worth the stay.

So glad you enjoyed your stay at the Shamrock and thanks for the great feedback. The Motel and Hotel are very popular and we often have a lot of trucks and trailers parking on the street but there is always ample parking in the Motel area for guests. We look forward to your next visit.

The service was particularly good and the rooms well appointed and clean. Its worth highlighting the added benefit of the location in relation to the Hotel and quality of its service, setting and meals.

I thoroughly enjoy the Shamrock during my fly-in/out visits to audit local business customers. It keeps the visit simple, especially if you don't have a vehicle - accommodation, food, and social drinks all in the one location. The staff are great too - I didn't have a first aid kit with me when I stubbed my toe and Emma/Emily from...

The room was clean and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. Good value for the price with a good size Continental breakfast. We had use of the large room and bar for the 60th birthday we were attending. Which was great. The air conditioning was only just adequate. Bathroom was clean but out dated.

Great stay from check-in, drinks in the bar, dinner, sleep and check-out. We did the Dinner, Bed & Breakfast package. Would probably just do accommodation next time and order off the main menu for dinner. All good, will return. George & Marnie
