Friendliest staff I have come across for some time. Rooms very comfy and super clean. It was only an overnighter, but could have stayed there longer. Really very good. The included breakfast was substantial and fresh. My partner added more to his and his eggs cooked to perfection.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice rooms, excellent value. Nice and quiet probably due to the internal brick walls. Slept well every night. Break was included. Good wifi. Large comfy rooms with couch desk and fridge. Would stay again.

We spent two nights here and were more than happy with the standard and facilities of the motel. The room was spacious, clean, modern and quiet. The continental breakfast was adequate. Location was convenient as it was an easy walk to supermarkets and the CBD. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We certainly recommend this motel.

Clean and comfortable within the city reaches. This motel has a great bar and an excellent restaurant. The staff are very accommodating and stayed open for our group of 8 to have dinner on a Tuesday night. They have rooms which have a kitchenette with hot plates and microwave which is handy. Can highly recommend.

After a long days drive it was a pleasure to arrive at the Shakespeare Motel. They have taken away the signs on an ageing motel and replace them with a nice look.
