I spent 3 weeks at BKs while on assignment to the hospital (20 minutes walk away). The stay was comfortable and staff helpful. It is on State Highway 1 so traffic noise can be a problem but I was allocated a room furthest away from the road so that wasn't major. Car parking was a bit cramped at that part...

We found this motel easy to find on the main road into town. Close enough that you can walk to the shops and restaurants. Good clean room, nice bed, nice hot shower lovely big TV in the room and friendly helpful staff.

On the plus side, this place is very quiet when you consider how close it is to the main road, my room was big, and was always spotlessly cleaned each day. On the down side, the rooms are a bit soulless, there is no view, and the wi-fi dropped out pretty frequently.

Our room was a decent size with plenty of space to put two suitcases. It was nice to have a ceiling fan as it was quite hot. The bed was a little too soft and felt old. The room could do with a bit of cheering up. There is parking in front of the rooms. Some noise from traffic but...

Comfortable & reasonable. Centrally located. The host is super duper helpful and it's close to some great walking tracks if you are trying to squeeze in some exercise. Simple but clean. The linen is spotless!

Five minute walk into CBD. Safe area with excellent parking for most units (plenty of room to open doors unlike some places where your car is jammed in). Hosts are great. Rooms a little tired but tidy. Overall package good value.

Stayed a night. Nice clean & tidy one bedroom unit. Good size TV. Useful having a TV in the bedroom also. Handy to all amenities. Lovely big spa bath. Pleasant manager . I would stay here again. A bit of traffic noise - not enough to interrupt my sleep though.

We had checked out another motel close by and noticed it was very noisy from the highway traffic. This motel however, was surprisingly quiet. The room was well appointed, clean and up to date. Friendly and helpful manager helped make this a pleasant stay despite being situated in a non-descript part of town.

Thanks for your stay. See you again some time.

Clean and friendly. A big plus for me was that they have real coffee (fair trade and organic!) and a plunger in the room. Well done for that!! But motel is right by the motorway and the room is quite small with no privacy at all as the only window faces the car park where everyone walks passed all the...

Thanks for staying with us anyway, although i don't know of any Motel that has complete privacy, and most people do like the fact that they can park their car directly outside their room. Thanks.

I travel a lot for work and my boss booked me in to stay two nights, it is well located, well furnished, free wifi, TV with Freeview. Solid basics, not over priced. Will definitely stay here again in the future.
