As the title says very friendly and helpful staff which makes a difference when they can advise on local sightseeing rather than troll through lots of brochures. Accomodation was excellent clean and modern and not your usual hotel furniture and decor ,some thought had gone into it ,rooms were quite large by today's standards and had the usual condiments .Pool...

We had a great time at the Motel. It far exceeded our expectations. The room was extremely clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful for booking and information. The highlight of the motel is the BBQ area with a huge restaurant style flat top grill. That enabled us to cook our own meals and saved us a ton...

Where you pay Motel rate you actually get much more value. A very personal attention with help for airport transfers (Cairns) and local activities, a friendly staff, renovated and clean rooms with all necessary cooking equipment. The location is perfect within walking distance from 4 miles beach and restaurants. If you don't look for luxury accomodation, do not look further!

Centrally located within walking distance of all the shops, services and 4 Mile beach, this motel is a little gem. The room was large and clean and recently updated with nice engineered laminate floors (SO much better than carpet), retro decor, and a super comfy bed. Shower stall was large enough for 2. :-) Apartment-size fridge/freezer with toaster and kettle...
