Visited with my family for an overnight trip. Large, clean, beautiful rooms, friendly and helpful service. Will visit again. Kids definitely enjoyed the heated indoor pool on a cold day. Very reasonable rates for our 2 bedroom, 5 people stay!

Was surprised by the room size, a huge one! The building is actually in very decent condition and all areas were with high ceiling. Unfortunately, the carpet in our spa room was in too bad shape and the AC felt like needed immediate service - it just failed to warm up the room enough in a cold June night

This may have been something much better when opened as the fit-out was good quality but it is now a little tired and not well maintained, the carpet old and looking its age and the place had a sad tired feel to it. The service was positive and friendly although many signs around indicated what you can and cannot do so step out of line and there could be trouble, The internet was sub-standard , slow and subject to drop-outs. It is centrally located but does need a refurbishment.If you like Indian food there is a constant aroma of curry from the Indian restaurant below.

This is a well kept motel. The staff are super friendly and accommodating. Friends stayed in the 2 bedroom balcony spa room and I stayed in the internal room with skylight. Manager happily opened the skylight for me at the beginning of my stay which was nice to have natural light when I woke. I stayed in rm 23. Bed was comfortable. This room doesn’t have a microwave. The 2 bedroom did. I had a shower and the shower was over the bath in the 2 bedroom suite. I would have had difficulty getting in due to my mobility.

I was charged an extra $5 as I was told the room I booked was unavailable so was going into the next upscale room. Hmmm The skylight did not close properly and was told it would be fixed and it wasn't so woke at the crack of dawn. The heating did not work properly so froze all night. The mattress was well worn and we rolled into the centre.....a very uncomfortable night sleep. When you showered water went everywhere so it was wet under foot.

Hi Claire and thank you for making time to review your stay. We are very sorry to hear of your disappointment and certainly take on board your concern about the skylights. Like curtains, some do have some gaps so do not absolutely black out the room. We did check the AC and didn't find anything wrong with it , we did however notice that the thermostat temperature was set quite cool at 22 degrees. The shower screens are full length glass doors on the shower enclosure and as a rule, do not leak too much however if they are not fully closed, water will escape however we do provide bathmats and our bathroom tiles are coated non-slip. Now on to the price, Claire we are sorry that this disappointed you however it was not a case of us upgrading your room and forcing a higher price on you as you have implied. You were originally booked for a different date in the last week of May and changed the date to the Queens Birthday long weekend. This changed your price to a peak season price which was an additional $5.00. I was of the impression that this had been mentioned to you when you changed the dates however as it was possible that that slipped, the manager on duty actually reduced the price back to the low season price for the earlier booking and refunded the $5.00 charge to you. Once again, we are sorry to see that we did not meet your expectations and hope that you will accept our apology
