The Abraham Lincoln Motel is a family owner operated motel renowned for country hospitality and personalised service.

We have fifteen spacious ground floor units situated on large grounds set amongst well maintained lawns and rose gardens, which are a highlight when all out in flower.

Named after possibly the most famous of all American Presidents the Abraham Lincoln Motel is not only unique by name, but also the way it was constructed.

With two parallel rows of units located behind the main residence and reception, the layout means rooms are located well off the highway.

Due to the units being built at different levels they are much lower than the roadway and guests can experience a quiet and comfortable nights rest, as much of the road noise is dissipated over the top.

Constructed with a distinct easterly aspect, guests can sit out the front of their rooms in winter and enjoy the warm sunshine in the mornings and in summer have the benefit of complete shade to enjoy the cool outside in the evenings after a long day on the road.
