Well maintained rooms; very good food and very friendly staff. Stayed there both to and from Perth. We were that impressed. Also prices were quite reasonable. Given the opportunity, would gladly stay again. Wifi was ok.

It's ok for one night stay. The motel is close to the highway, outside of the town. Very small toilet, difficult to get in. No door in the bathroom. Could get noisy late in the night. Hard bed. Good TV channel. Wifi doesn't work.

Well to the East of the CBD on Highway One, never the less it was very convenient and easy to find. The unit was comfortable, and the noise from the highway was not obtrusive. The staff were obliging, and the price reasonable. A good place to stop on the way through

The room was clean and comfortable so we tried the restaurant. The Vegetarian dish was not properly cooked and the grilled fish less than average. Staff were polite and attentive and the room service was good otherwise. It's well located and easy to locate on the highway into town from the East and reasonably quiet. We ate elsewhere after that.

The rooms are really showing their age and lack of attention. Dirty carpet, stained benches and flakey paint. The meal was probably the worst that I have had anywhere, mushy vegetables( over salted ) the beef schnitzel was crisp, too crisp! The mashed potato was something that I have never experienced but truly disgusting. The reception girls and wait staff... More

This place is cheap, however the showers are good and the king single bed was comfortable. Hard to complain about anything at $50 for a private room with private shower and toilet. The rooms are also fairly large. There is a restaurant by reception but i didn't try it. Needs a lick of paint here and there but it is... More

I had a look at reviews before booking and I must say was surprised at what people said as I thought for a 1 night stay had everything that was needed. The cost was very reasonable and everything was clean and tidy

Like almost all of the hotels and motels in South Australia, we found this one to be overpriced. This is from a North American context. The bathroom area is separated only by a curtain. Our toilet got clogged up in the middle of the night. When we mentioned this to the manager the next day he said that he knew... More

We had a large room with a bobble deb & two singles. The room was very basic, there was very little privacy - the bathroom was behind a short curtain, fronted the ancient toilet was seperate, but very little room to move with the basin & shower behind the curtain. Beds were reasonably comfortable, but being close to the Higheat,... More
