A modern, clean motel with lovely staff

Just add I was about to give up on dreadful Aussie motels that haven't been refurbished since the 1970s but charge 21st century prices, I found this place. recently refurbished and modem and clean. The kids loved the pool, but there is a lack of shade in the hot summer Sun, just a couple of umbrellas (which were new and good). On the day we got there, the pool wasn't working and we used the public pool just across the road, with the motel refunding the entry charge. I used the BBQ next to the pool a couple of times and it worked week, the staff give you a lighter and tools. The BBQ was clean and well looked after.

Location: Central location, close to Canberra and 10 minute drive to Keown Forrest for mountain biking,. Close to supermarkets and great pub down down the road
3rd overnight stay at this hotel before a bike race at nearby Keown Forrest. Always clean & tidy. If you can request a room towards further away from entrance if you prefer less noise.
