It was good to have a pleasant place to relax in before and after our Rail Adventure. Our party of five people were happy to have chosen the F.W.Motel

We booked to to the Forgotten World tour and stayed at the hotel. Great choice, as the tour left from the hotel at 7.30am. It was clean, quiet and comfortable and the staff were lovely. It is right across the road from a supermarket and within walking distance of places to eat. Not a resort but for those who have booked this adventure (and it is) it is the perfect place to stay. It has everything you need.

Hotel handy to most facilities. However their 'loss' of my booking (gave the room to someone else) and then claimed that Wotif confirmation was not on their list. So by agreement stay was cancelled. The following day my C/c had been charged for the room. So either someone was lying, or there are questionable accounting procedures. Will not give them the opportunity again.
