Nothing like the photos on the website. No airconditioning, no bedspread, filthy toilet, couldn't even find the person running the place after many phone calls and no answer. Claimed the eftpos machine wasn't working and pocketed the cash. Looked like the Bates Motel in Psycho... and just as creepy. Never again.

Not a bad place to stay for a quick stop over. Nice and simple rooms with all the basic amenaties. Friendly staff even after we arrived late. The rooms stay nice and warm even on the cold nights and beds a soft and comfortable.

Stayed here for one night and it fulfilled the purpose. Getting a shower and some sleep. That's it! However, I truly can't recommend this place for a longer stay since the rooms are very old and not very well maintained. However, it all depends on your expectations. Parking for free. Little fridge, water kettle and towels. All you need for...

If you're looking for budget accommodation on the way to or from the snow then this is for you. The staff were helpful and friendly. They ensure your room is heated before you arrive. The rooms need a big makeover, but our room was clean and the shower hot. It was noisy when people arrived after midnight a couple of...

Save that 2am journey. This place makes a great overnight stop off on the way to the snow for the weekend from Sydney. You can arrive late and the rooms will be ready and heated, electric blankets on and clean for your arrival. Reception is open late for those leaving Sydney after work and arriving late night. In the morning...

The price was good, the staff friendly, the room clean. The only reason that I didn't give it a very good rating is that my room was very original and in need of a renovation. I did notice that another room had been upgraded. I would stay again on a trip to or from the snow as the bed was...

We were 4 couple and so rented a 4 bed room apartment. The motel is very very old and needs a lot of maintenance. John in the reception is really great and guided us for our stay.

We stayed for a night in their family room (lower level) after an afternoon in Thredbo. The room is small with 1 queen bed and 2 single beds. The toilet is decent in size.
