Stayed here because we happened to be in Adelaide at the same time as the Clipsal 500 motor race and this is the only accommodation we could get. The room was very basic and we had to have the window open to get any air and its location right at the start of the motorway meant that it was extremely...

The motel is right on the motorway going into Adelaide and for what we needed, it was very convenient, i.e. we had things to do in Adelaide (Unley) and also in the Adelaide Hills. It is however very dated so don't expect anything flashy. Our room was quite large and was right on the motorway side of the motel...I am...

Stayed in a family room for the night on the way through to Port Lincoln. A very old and run down motel to say the least. There was a constant 'dripping' noise in the roof for most of the night and the bathroom light started flickering in the middle of the night (left on for the kids) and wouldn't turn...

Hubby and I stopped here for the night when traveling East to West coast. Bathroom was a little less clean than I would've expected however it was a comfortable enough room and we slept well. It was in a good location for a quick afternoon/evening visit to Hahndorf. Check in was quick and hassle free.

We stayed at the motel for 4 nights, the room was missed for its clean up the next morning and the next day the carpets were not vacuumed - I know Motels do not vacuum each day when guests stay multiple nights, however the carpets needed to be done - after requesting this it was done the next day. The...

The motel can easily be reached in a day's drive from Melbourne. Situated on the edge of Adelaide, the city can be bypassed if heading further west towards Port Augusta. The rooms are clean and have a microwave with plates, cutlery and dish washing facilities. Only drawback is some noise from trucks braking as they come down the freeway.

We like staying here for an overnighter or a few days. Rooms are clean and have tea and coffee making facilities, fridge, microwave and utensils. It is abit dated and could do with a re vamp but the price is reflected in this. Overall an ok hotel.

I had a Spa room, number 22. Was ok. The wifi is a no go, could barely stay connected, the water stinks, the spa bath jets looked funky & kinda gross.. I had to work out what supplied power to what in the 'kitchenette' as you could only have one thing plugged into a power point at a time! So...

Dear Selena, Thanks for the feedback. We apologise if the room you stayed in did not meet your expectations. The matters you draw to attention to have been addressed with housekeeping and they assure us it will not happen again. We have a new cleaning team and it is clear that they are not performing to our expectations re cleaning...

Very comfy motel and super nice people working there. Its easy to get there and eventhough its near the street you cant hear the traffic in the rooms. We had some problems with the tyre of our car and we directly got help and could fix it. We had a lovely and clean room and all in all a very...
