This is my second stay at this Motel my only complaint is that they don't have a lift to get to the upstairs units but other than that it is so well situated in Glenelg with the Jetty Hotel which has great meals and the tram to the city about 50 metres away then there is the lovely walks along...

The room was clean and comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful.It is also in a great location. Although I stayed on my own to attend to family business, it would be a lovely place to stay as a couple or family.

Stayed in Apartment 5 with a couple of female friends. Reception staff were courteous but not friendly. There were several maintenance issues including a bedhead which had detached itself from the wall, an ancient set of hotplates and grill which we struggled to get to work. Furniture was tired, and needs replacing. There was a sign on the kitchen wall...

An overnight stay here. We were given a very comfrtable room which met all expectations. Friendly staff and got a free breakfast due to a promotion by the hotel chain. Only downside was the steep stairs from the carpark to the rooms.

Clean rooms. Helpful staff. Very near a lot of nice restaurants in Glenelg. Stayed overnight on a trip to Sydney. Handy for airport which is only 15 minutes away by car. Free parking which helps. Will definitely come back.

Great position for a stay at glenelg.Rooms clean and bed very comfy. It has a few downfalls in that the stairs are not a great thing when you have baggage, steep and too many of them( hard to manage when you are elderly or physically challenged). It is also very noisy at night with seemingly every hotted up car and...

If you want to be in the bay area, this is a great spot, it isn't the Ritz by a long way but very nice for the price. The other places are a huge jump in price. The food is very good and everything you might want in dining very close buy. Kids can run on the beach, around 4...

Stayed here for a long weekend - main bedroom is a good size but bathroom, especially shower is pretty small. Everything is clean and functional. Steps up to reception / entry are steep although I believe there is a lift from the car park - but as we arrived by taxi, this was not obvious. Handy to shops, restaurants, trams...

One of group was a bit confused but reception were wonderful in helping him sort things out and advised us when we returned. Sorry...
