          We stayed for one night, mum, myself and 2 nephews. The staff were very accomodating with my nephews joining us last minute. They were super friendly to us and the boys. Recommended the tavern next door, which was great. Hubby and I have stayed before, but this time was even better older rooms, but very comfortable beds and clean. Would definitely stay again.

          We stayed for one night, room was very clean with some lovely pops of colour which were very tasteful. Location was perfect for us, great meal was had at the Westower Tavern. My criticism was the WIFI was basically non existent, as signal strength was poor and air con struggled a little bit overnight due to the humidity, but overall was a good motel to stay at.

          I got surprised when I arrived, the staff are very friendly and the room was well cleaned and comfortable. There are people who do not care about this, but I liked it, and for those who care as I do, there is the tip. They have a simple and pretty cool breakfast, just order it the night before at reception. And for those who like a practical coffee, there are 3 types of coffee and cappuccinos, that one in packs, when you arrive they ask if you are interested in a hot milk to use with the coffee. Super easy to find, on the main street, next it there is a very good pub as well.
