The property was clean and there was plenty of space for the five of us. The staff were friendly and helpful. For people who are bothered by traffic noise, there was a small amount, but it wasn't really a problem. Very fussy people might be bothered by the carpet being a little worse for wear. Overall we were happy with a reasonably priced motel in a perfect location, very clean and comfortable, which is the main thing you want in a room away. Nice leafy green outdoor area with a small table and chairs.

I have never had a stay like this she added unnecessary charges, told me she wasn’t happy and then gave my partner a false invoice. The accommodation was basic the tv didn’t work and it was a very highly uncomfortable night. She also voiced her issues with Wotif and said she hated dealing with Wotif customers I didn’t even stay the whole night it was so bad.

We're as disappointed as you are Nola. We expect that guests are respectful towards the hosts as we are to our guests. No invoice was provided to your partner, nor were any additional charges added. However your card may be charged should our key not be returned. We did notice upon clearing the room the following morning that the TV was still turned off at the wall so perhaps this is why it didn't turn on as you expected. We have not reported your booking to Wotif. Our rapport with all guests is proven to be friendly and professional as can be evidenced by reports from other guests' experience. Thank you for the opportunity to respond to and address your concerns with your booking. We hope your next stay at a motel is more to your liking.
