      Cheap and cheeful”

      This is quite an old motel, with basic fittings, but it's clean, everything works and the breakfast was good value. Staff were available and helpful. Comfortable bed, strong aircon, good wifi. Not in the centre of town, but you could walk it if you had to.

      Hidden fee charged after booking has been made”

      It seems that this motel is associated with 'ARRA Accommodation Group' which charges another 2.2% "financial fee" on top of the "Total Fee". This charge is hidden, and the consumer is only aware of it after providing credit card detail. My understanding is that this practice is illegal in Australia. A complaint can be lodged with either Agoda or your bank which issued your credit card to get this 2.2% back, but it's a nuisance that consumers should not have to deal with (you should take a screenshot of the "total fee" that you agree to pay as evidence just in case you want to lodge a complaint). Agoda has promised to look into this matter, so it's interesting to see if anything has been done to stop this practice.

      The staff were very friendly and the room comfortable and equipped with tea/ coffee making facilities as well as microwave .

      It is about 15 minutes walk from the city centre and railway station. Food at the motel is quite expensive but many pubs and restaurants are expensive too in this city. The staff were very friendly and the room was comfortable and well equipped .
