                  Next door was the Shamrock Hotel & restaurant with great food & atmosphere. The room was serviced daily & had a complimentary continental breakfast every day. The location was great close to city but quite as it was one street off the highway. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and it had everything we required.

                  Almost perfect”

                  The room was amazing! Huge with complete kitchen running along one wall, proper little table and chairs for eating, comfy queen size bed, huge ensuite and most important for me a dedicated outdoor seating area for each room overlooking the pool. Only two little annoyances which were, firstly that there were no instructions to find the cable channels (or if they were there in the booklet they certainly weren’t easy to find) and secondly when I tried to ring the office the staff member had mysteriously left early for the day without forwarding on any incoming calls to anywhere. I tried to ring twice and it simply rang out. So fearing we would be stuck with free-to-air tv for the night (in other words nothing to watch) I raced all the way round to the front office only to find it closed early, no explanation. The closed sign on the door said to ring the duty manager at the restaurant after office hours (which by the way is beautiful with fantastic very well priced meals!), so I then went back to our room, only for that number to ring out also. Determined and a bit annoyed I have to admit I walked (stormed) over to the restaurant and asked for the duty manager. The lovely young woman was extremely professional, and caring and listened to my complaint. She apologised and proceeded to come back with me to our room and show me exactly how to get to the cable channels (which by the way are for some peculiar reason set up on the av channel!) I was very impressed with her attitude and happy to be able to watch something decent after the fabulous dinner we later had at the restaurant. All the staff at the restaurant were great. So almost a perfect 5 star but not quite. Highly recommend though.

                  Thanks for the review and your feedback which we will certainly take onboard. Reception hours are until 6pm on weekends and it is unfortunate that the staff member rostered on, chose to leave early. Please accept our apologies for this. The Reception phone is diverted to the Hotel after hours but in busy periods, phone calls are sometimes missed. Once again please accept our apologies for this. I'm glad everything was sorted for you and that you enjoyed your evening meal. Staff are always happy to assist in anyway possible, so hopefully we will see you again in the future.

                  Thanks for the review and the feedback! Normally the Motel is very quiet, so we apologise for the loud music from the Hotel. Obviously there were functions being held. A quick phone call to the Manager on Duty may have helped as they are not always aware how far the music travels. Hopefully it didn't detract from the rest of your stay.

                  Since we booked through agoda we paid more to include breakfast but instead of a proper breakfast , there were some slices of bread and other supplies in the fridge. Not worth the money spent. Apparently there were cheaper rooms opposite the road. Otherwise the staff were helpful and stay was good. Donot choose rooms near the staircase and reception because you are disturbed by people walking up and down. Would not recommend room no 314 which was where we stayed.

                  Thanks for the review and your feedback. The Continental Breakfast we provide in the rooms is complimentary so it is a little concerning that you were charged extra for it when you booked online. Yes there are cheaper small Motel rooms around, but we offer a spacious self-contained room - our guests continually comment on how large and comfortable our rooms are. They also comment on how quiet the rooms are, but obviously you stayed on a busy Friday night when the Motel was full with families and guests attending functions. Hopefully this doesn't deter you from visiting us again.

                  Thanks for the review and your feedback Kevin. Security screen doors are in the plans when we are renovating as many guests ask about them. Unfortunately a clothes airer takes up a lot of room and as in most Motel rooms, space is at a premium, however we do offer the convenience of a clothes dryer to dry your clothes.
