          Great unit, good price, close to town centre”

          Our unit had queen bedroom with large lounge dining area and a single bed in it. KItchen and bathroom very clean. Quiet as the units extend away from the road. We parked outside our unit and the lounge had a sliding door onto lawn area. Staff are very friendly with info about the area. Recommend the Indian across the road , cheap and great food. Also ate at Jimmy Jacks down the road which was good too.

          I've come here a few times when I have had to attend meetings in town where parking can be difficult so I leave my car here during the day. It's a fantastic location - just a straight 5 minute walk into town and I can't get lost. There is a nice little private hot tub onsite to relax in. The staff recognized me even though I travel infrequently and were very, very kind and helpful with a few special requests. A+++

          Needed extra blankets for the cold weather, and unit needed windows closed and warmed before nite air cooled the unit down ,as we arrived at 6 pm , would have appreciated that, as we were elderly. And office staff knew our needs. Make a policy to close windows in winter after 3 pm . Make it cosy for older ones. Thanks.

          Staff were lovely. We arrived early. Room 3 ready clean cosy and comfortable. Furnishings are well used but tidy. Spa was not available for use. Water pipes a bit cranky. Great location but not noisy from traffic. Extra wide carpark right outside the door. Have seen negative comments in reviews but for us it was just fine. The slider to back garden and outdoor furniture was nice under the trees as it was hot. Def not five star but all good.

          Young boy on reception was friendly, good location, room was clean. However could hear absolutely every nose from the rooms next door including when they showered, went to the toilet and loud snoring all night long (not that that was the fault of the accommodation provider) but sound proofing upgrades would be ideal. Worse sleep we had on our 10 night trip staying at 7 locations.

          Stay wasn't too bad overall. Cheap room, Staff very nice and cleaning was spot on. Great spot near town. Downside was the very paper-thin walls and deteriorating finish of the rooms. Don't expect to get too much sleep. Wouldn't go again personally but may work for some.

          The room could have been a bit cleaner, the vinyl areas were a little dirty as was the carpet. A previous guest had left a half pack of butter in the microwave. The owner did apologise to be fair. However to be honest we also left items in the fridge but did call and alert the owner of our error. Nonetheless it was a pleasant stay and certainly recommendable.

          Not clean eg; bathroom, curtains, doors, didnt' find extra pillows till leaving, maintenance not kept up or roughly done, bed terribly shaky, no tissues worse thing was hearing neighbours all night long and in morning while trying to sleep in banging around and showering, tin of fag butts left outside, no mossie protection. Maybe if you like feeling you are in a campground this is this is the place for you.

          Warning - do not stay here ”

          The room was dirty, in really poor condition and smelt like cigarettes. Not long after settling into the room, we heard a massive domestic coming from a room above ours. The police arrived not long after. We realised that the motel provided emergency and temporary housing. We didn’t feel comfortable to stay there so we left. If you are looking for a clean and relaxing place to stay, this is not the place for you.
