Located in an ideal spot for the harbour, the beach and many restaurants; the room was large clean and comfortable. The only downside is that the continental breakfast was very basic and lacked variety. However we would certainly stay there again.

Continental breakfast adequate. Rooms clean. Undercover parking good. Staff friendly and efficient. Wifi slow but adequate. Attempts have been made to modernise rooms but overall I would expect better for a four star establishment.

This Motel is clean with a few of the amenities that we consider important. It has a fridge, a kettle, wifi and television. The wifi can be spotty at peak times but we do not find this unusual here in Australia. The reception staff was very friendly and helpful.

Definite cut above your regular Aussie motel. Lovely recently refurbished room and bathroom, with comfy bed and big TV. Very well placed near Port Mac town centre. Very friendly reception. Free breakfast was simple but ok. Will visit again on trip between Sydney and Brisbane.

We turned up here looking for a room for that night. The staff were very helpful and friendly in accommodating 3 of us in 1 room. The room was very clean and provided a fridge a long with a free self service laundry service. The light breakfast included was adequate, but they only offered instant coffee included.

I stayed here in December 2016 and cannot thank Ben and the team for the great and comfortable stay. Ben picked us up from the airport which was a great help and he also changed our room when we went to check in as we had a lot of luggage from a lengthy travel around Australia. He kindly moved us...

While strictly speaking room 512 is not a penthouse, but because of its location within the hotel and its outlook, it has a penthouse feel. Situated on the top floor over looking the Hastings River, it is a perfect location to sit and watch the sunset while enjoying a cool drink. Renovated perhaps just over a year ago the room...
