What a great place to stay! From checking in to checking out, the service was seamless, professional, friendly and welcoming. The rooms were comfortable and CLEAN! Not a random hair in sight! While the bathrooms could do with a renovation, they were very clean, nice complimentary toiletries, and provided enough towels. The attached restaurant was a real highlight. Beautifully set...

Had an overnight stay here for a birthday celebration, was a good choice. The room was nice, very clean, very comfortable, nothing more we needed. Enjoyed a swim in the pool. Dinner in the restaurant was delicious, my only complaint is my meal could have been hotter! A free birthday drink was appreciated! Service was great, friendly staff. Complimentary Continental...

What a fabulous place to stay. Very helpful didn't ask for a downstairs room when booking but they saw when we arrived that was what we needed and without asking they changed our room to downstairs. We ate in their restaurant that night and what a superb meal. We have never tasted anything like it in a long while. Breakfast...

This Motel is one turn off the main road in from the south, so very easy to find. Rooms are clean and spacious. The lady who booked us in was very friendly and informative. Breakfast is good and complementary with the room.

Polite reception from the start. Obvious the property clean and well maintained. Room was spotless and had a nice atmosphere. Restaurant area very well set out with nice ambiance. Standard breakfast fare was more than adaquate and well presented. Didn't try the hot food menu which is in addition to standard room rate. My departure was delayed and owner Linda...

Good price, neat, clean, comfortable rooms. The staff are all really lovely. The owner lives on site and actually cares and it shows. The food in the restaurant was lovely. I had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place.

I stayed 3 nights at this motel on a recent business trip. The room was very well presented, very clean and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable and good pillows. The owner and staff were all very friendly and made sure that all their guests felt genuinely welcome. Great restaurant for both breakfast and dinner, with a separate travellers menu...

We stopped here for one night while driving down with two kids from Cairns to Brisbane. We got a suite with a kitchen. It was a bit tight but fine. The motel is a bit old in terms of its construction. However, the staff was exceedingly nice and polite. Plus the breakfast / restaurant room is very well done. The...

Warm friendly atmosphere, owner operated so not only great attention to detail but also a genuine interest in what your requirements were to make your stay perfect. A complimentary buffet breakfast was more than enough and the evening restaurant was cosy, relaxed dining, or to your door for the weary traveller. Very comfortable bed, better than mine at home.
