    I liked that it was nice and convenient. It was clean and manager seems very nice.

    I did think that it could do with a bit of updating

    The cleanliness of our motel room was of very high standard and was evident as soon as we arrived. They provided us with alot of sky tv coverage and selection. Everything we needed for our short stay was there, close to food takeaways and the city and was the cheapest motel to stay at.

    Easy to find. Nice comfortable bed. Good shower. Clear Television. Good kitchen facilities and a nice cookie to have with my coffee.

    The spa was locked. I ran out of time to go ask at reception if I could have a key, so not sure if this was required to access the spa.

    Inexpensive, friendly helpful staff, very convenient location

  • Older travelers

    Friendly and helpful staff. Some nearby restaurants, short drive to others. Nice little town location. Room is dated but clean and comfortable.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Clean, hot showers, laundry facilities, comfy bed, TV , parking convenient.

    Lack of variety of restaurants nearby. However there were take away burger bars and one super Thai restaurant almost across the road from the hotel.

  • Single
    8.4

    It was exceptionally clean, the room smelt fresh not like an artificial deodorizer. All the needs of a traveler were anticipated & catered for . The owners /staff were nice people.

    The plumbing is really off putting, It rattles gurgles & hisses loudly when the other units were using the toilet or shower. I think that it maybe a small problem like an air lock in the pipes but it would be sensible to remove this problem then I would think Motel Six would be excellent on all accounts

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Very clean. Private. Quiet room.

    On arrival it was disappointing that the price I was quoted on the internet increased by $15 for my 4 yr old grandson. I filled in all the information requested including no. of guests and that one was a preschool child. The quote and price I entered my credit card for to secure the booking was $115. I backed up to check it that included the child and reentered the details. Final price was still $115. The confirmation emailed showed $115 for 2 persons. The booking would not accept another person and therefore I didn;t know there was a hidden cost of A$15. I have booked several hotels/motels using this website and this Motel is the only one with hidden costs. . The hostess showed me on my confirmation print out the conditions so i complied but that print out only shows conditions AFTER you have made the booking. Confused? So was I. Disappointing. Not a friendly welcome with this glitch.

    Every thing the cleanness how close it was to the town ship very very handy.. The milk was out of date....

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    very comfortable quiet central location very handy to town centre

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    Close to the central city Within walking distance to the clubs, restaurants etc Clean and tidy

    A two bedroom unit, however you had to walk through the main bedroom to get to the second one. Good for a family, not ideal for two couples.
