Our family of 4 were stayed in room 2 which is longest distance from the reception couldn't get WiFi signal at night, the next morning got wifi at the door but password was wrong. The room with bathroom was reasonable clean, has kitchenette with fridge, has heated blankets on bed but we didn't use.

I booked this motel, but then we couldn't make it in time because I felt unwell, cancelled booking with booking.com, later that day I saw where the whole amount had been taken out of my account, I find this quite unfair, would have been happy with a fee, but not the lot.

Stayed at this modest little motel for 3 nights over Christmas.It is under new management and they are very friendly and do their utmost to make your stay enjoyable. The motel itself is very basic but the room had a microwave, toaster and kettle as well as Foxtel. Wifi is also available.

Curious retro pre 60's motor motel experience of yesteryear. Authentic cornice and windows with b/rm to match. Friendly staff only happy to help. Rooms clean, comfortable bed. Close to business hours shopping centre, burgers nearby. Weekends the Calder sleeps but not from am Mondays.
