Don’t be fooled by the slick room photos, they are the only thing that’s seen any upgrades since the 70s. This is an old motel that has had some room refurbishment done and not much else. The exterior is your typical 70s trucker motel and you’ll be woken by the trucks on the highway. The main building does not have a bar area really, pokies and a TAB as well as the buffet area. The buffet is $35 per person and the food is comparable to what you’d find in a Westfield food court, definitely not worth the price. The staff were either friendly and new at the job or impolite and scowling. Definitely avoid especially for the price of the room.

Okay to stay for a couple of nights but would not say it was “home away from home”. Bottles being emptied from adjacent hotel created unwanted noise.

Staff friendly. Room was clean but bed was as hard as sleeping on the floor. Definitely not worth $200 per night
