7.5 Good
Pros: Hotel is very nice and room comfortable. Bathtub great. Rooms clean and the location is perfect. Parking behind the hotel is handy too.
Cons: Customer service was very low. We arrived and the reception was closed. We went to the restaurant where nobody even looked at us. Waitress didn't look at me even though I stood right next to her. At least guy behind bar gave us smile and told us where to go. Receptionist told us we have to hurry as "it's getting late" at 3:20pm! So quickly checked us in didn't tell us anything about breakfast and tried to be smarty pants when I asked questions. Breakfast was kinda joke. Again nobody in the restaurant first person we saw didn't look at us because she was a cook and when the breakfast lady came out almost didn't spoke. We didn't understand her much as she was speaking very quietly. Have to say this hotel is very beautiful but we could see they didn't want to go extra mile for their customers and seems to charge a lot of money but don't want to spend them on customers. Breakfast very very basic and if you want anything else they will charge you full price. Also the room is quite noisy all night. You can hear people in the lounge who don't care if you want to sleep.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: For budget accommodation it was quite a bit better than I expected. Staff were really nice and very helpful.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Restaurant staff were excellent and location very convenient.
Cons: Was thinking blinds or curtain on front door to units could be helpful as for those sleeping in lounge the sun in the morning is extremely bright. Just a thought. Unit 12 needs the shower head descaled. However as we had stayed in that unit previously the staff allowed us to move Units which was great.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Location is ideal if you need to be at the north end of town. Restaurant food is good, bit lacking in ambience. Adequate off-road parking. Staff always friendly. And an early check-in much appreciated.
Cons: Some of the rooms are a little aged and run down and could use an upgrade; bathrooms clean but very basic, plastic 1980s-style, a missing curtain or a window that won't shut properly. To be expected for the price!

8.3 Excellent

Cons: The electric jug in our room was not usable
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The motel was comfortable, but was ruined by the noise from the courtyard behind our unit until just after 2am. ie guests drinking and generally sociallising. This is a motel, not a pub. However the sunday night was much better. Generally a comfortable, well located motel.
Cons: Aircon would be nice, but we already knew it was not available before we arrived. Probably getting due for a facelift, but the price was very reasonable.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The accommodation was excellent. No problems at all. We only moved elsewhere because a close relative from overseas was staying at a nearby property.
Cons: No complaints at all.

9.3 Excellent
Pros: Location, by the riverfront... nice garden outside, WIFI.
Cons: Nothing I can think of at present..
8.3 Excellent
Pros: I did not have breakfast and the location was perfect.
Cons: Some areas were dusty, such as the chandelier light - it had a number of bulbs missing and was very dusty. As was the bedside lamp on the stand under the actual lampshade. In the bathroom a blind above the basin was pretty dusty and covered in splash marks. This should be wiped daily. The basin area was not wiped and the stainless steel shower base is very slippery when you use shower gel. A rubber mat would help one not slip and possibly break a limb.
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: The grounds were beautiful and my encounter with the owner was pleasant however my husband received poor service from her.
Cons: Unfortunately the dishes were dirty there was enough hot water for the kids to shower but then it ran out until morning.For a family of 4 very small,no couch,TV basic channels,only 2 coffee sachets which were awful,really upset with accomodation.
