The place is clean Mark was really helpful, there was a problem with the wifi and he went way out of his way to get it fixed on a weekend. Service ++++ Although on a main road it was quiet. One of those places that is efficient and they made it seem simple.

Arrived at The Avenue for a one night transit stop. I was pleasantly surprised! Staff were welcoming and friendly. Room was very well presented and very clean. Much bigger than I anticipated. A bit of a walk (15-20 minutes) into town for dinner, but it was quite a pleasant stroll.

Clean, tidy, quiet, well equipped unit. Double spa bath was a hit with the rest of the family. Lots of easy parking and walking distance to supermarket and The Warehouse. Friendly hosts too. We will stay there again.

On my return visit to this very clean and modern motel I was warmly greeted and upgraded to their best suite. Huge king size bed with an extra two singles in the lounge. Spacious unit with spa bath is a welcome relief to the weary business traveller No traffic noise yet very handy to the CBD, easy parking
