4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The thermal poll was well kept and relaxing. The property is a bit dated, but well maintained, and the staff were helpful. A good value.

Better Options for the Price

Stayed in 'The Cottage' and it was quite ordinary. Everything looking worn. Hole in lounge suite. Settee on porch repaired with sticky tape. Sheets appeared clean enough, but the rest of the bedding - duvets & blankets - visible that all needed a good wash and smelt less than fresh. If I was paying a budget price I would expect budget accom, but expected better than this for the price we paid (around A$250 per night). It also appeared that some rooms at the motel are being long-term let to WINZ benefit recipients, which certainly didn't add to the ambience of the place.
