We found this hotel in a hurry for a last minute stay, and it was dated, but clean and tidy. The staff made a special effort to stay late to greet us and she was very nice as well as helpful. For a one-night on the road stay, I would recommend it. The price was definitely right!

Handy hotel when driving the east coast.

Posted Apr 13, 2016 on Wotif
Pros: Room and bed were very good.
Cons: Not really.
Location: On the highway which was convenient. Petrol and macca's just over the road.
We were only there 7 hours but it was a comfortable stopover.

Great room, great price.

Nice clean large room at a budget price. Just off the highway so perfect for the long-haul sleepover. Will use again. Close to late hours food outlets a bonus.

enjoyed the stay, room was very large and comfortable, shame there was no sofa or chair to sit on, would have made the stay perfect. Would stay again.

not the same

Posted Apr 2, 2016 on Wotif
Pros: best avoid it and stay at the motto farm just up the road.
Cons: new menu and a bit of friendlyness at reception
i have stayed there many times but it seems to have noew owners. the food is disgusting and as for how the new owners make you feel well forget it.the hospitality at the hotel up the road kills this once perfect place to stay. the price of the booking stunned me. i got my wife to book it whilst i was in transit. she told me the price it was very low lower than ever before. now i know why.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback regarding your recent stay here at Sir Francis Drake Motel. We greatly appreciate your comments, as they help us in our effort to continually improve our level of service. We have been the managers here for a few months. We are disappointed that our receptionist did not greet you with our expected friendly welcome. Our chef has been here for over 2 years and delivers good quality food. We are sorry the food did not please but we have been in the hospitality industry long enough that you can not please everyone. The price you paid was very good value because we have implemented a members only discount for Wotif, Expedia and hotel.com members. We wish you the best on your future travels. Thank you Ann & Michael
