General liability

The person whose name appears in the booking is responsible for all guests and visitors on the premises for the duration of their stay. The owners and operators of the motel are not responsible for damage or loss of personal property on the premises. Vehicles may be parked free of charge in marked carpark spaces at the owner’s risk.

Payment and booking deposit

A deposit equal to the value of the first night’s accommodation is payable at the time of making the reservation. Accommodation and service charges for the entire period of your stay are to be settled in full at the time of check-in. Payment upon check-out is not permitted. Valid credit card details are to be provided for the purposes of a security guarantee. Payments by debit card or cash require an additional security deposit of $200 to be held or pre-authorised in respect of potential loss or damage. Charges for mini-bar items not settled at the time of check-out shall be debited against the security deposit.


All cancellations shall be debited the cost of the first night as non-refundable. Cancellations without notice during multiple night stays shall also be debited the night of the date of departure. Cancellations of bookings including discount rates, package deals, group bookings, and special events (eg. sporting weekends) shall be debited the cost of all rooms and nights for the full period.

Damages and cleaning

You are liable for the cost of any loss or damage in relation to your stay, including but not limited to, the effects of smoking, pets, or cooking in the rooms. You may be debited up to $200 for any loss or damage incurred, including cleaning, repairs, and replacement items, at the sole discretion of the motel manager.


Smoking is not permitted in the rooms, indoor spaces, or public areas. A smoking area is available beside the pool entry gate. Legal penalties apply to smoking in unauthorised areas and interfering with fire equipment such as smoke detectors.


Children must be accompanied by at least one adult at all times, and in all locations, on the premises. One child, up to the age of 12 months, accompanied at least one adult may exceed the permitted occupancy per room. More than one child, and all children over 12 months in age, require allocated beds.


Parking is available for all guests with one space per room. Undercover parking is available on-site although some spaces are not fully covered. Additional parking is available in the street (directly across the road) and in nearby streets, which may be suitable for trucks. Guests park on the property at their own risk, including valuables in, or with, the vehicles. Your attention is drawn to the indicated carpark ceiling heights.
