The staff and rooms were great. Even though the motel is on a major road and we stayed facing that road the room was quiet with no disturbance. The bed and facilities were of a high standard would definitely stay there again.

The hotel is near Westfield and also easy walk to shops Room extremely comfortable and overall great stay and excellent value. Only negative was had not been vacuumed as there was a cable tie makeup brush and other obvious areas on the floor. But was very clean apart from this. Definately would stay again.

Fortunately a one night stop for business in the sand belt region of Melbourne. A Motel really, with outside rooms, a bar and decent breakfast room. Did the job I guess. The rooms are a bit worn out but basically adequate, the bar is OK too. Beers on draught and a TV if you are on your own. Breakfast is...
