We really liked the front desk woman she was wonderful ,however they had run out of milk and were going to get us some but none arrived ,to be fair we were only there for one night so not a big deal . The property is in dire need of some ongoing maintenance ,ie walls where fixtures have been moved have holes in , carpet and mats ragged in places ,entry doors and windows to rooms have not been cleaned since goodness’s knows when .

Great location, easy to get to. Arrived late, was told to find key in our unlocked room. This worked well. Could be a super motel if managment tidy up little things like removing carpet stains, cleaned up walls and paint falling off the bathroom ceiling. Other than this place was really clean.

I made my booking through Wotif and I was phond by the motel and told there was no accommodation available and Wotif should not of taken the booking. Four days ago I contacted Wotif to return the money they charged me - to date and after two emails Wotif has not responded. I have issues with both the accommodation provider and Wotif
