Having read previous reviews I pretty much knew what to expect. The Highwayman Motel is clean but dated. The bed is uncomfortable, the coffee provided not good, road noise provided a disturbed sleep. Staff were pleasant and welcoming and its situated within easy walking distance of supermarkets, cafes, bars and restaurants. Ok value for the money

Hi Ian, Thanks for your review, most people can see through a coat of paint and appreciate having a clean motel.The coffee is Nescafe classic, we've been using it for six years and we have had one complaint. The executive studios might have suited your better with the bigger rooms and air conditioning located further to the rear of the property. only $20 a night more. Merry Xmas

Comfortable, clean and warm if not a little dated. Friendly staff and though situated on the main road my unit was far enough away to get any traffic noise.

I am sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. The WIFI is free to all guests. The Network Name and Password are on the front counter in the front desk in Reception. If it wasn't pointed out to you I apologise. The phones in the room work. You just dial 0 for reception and the password would have gladly been given to you.
