A nice property for an overnight stay or a day or two. Just on the opposite of the Lake with picturesque neighbourhood. A lot of eateries around, with a Chinese Restaurant just the opposite. John was very helpful.

Although this motel is situated on the main highway, we were not disturbed by traffic noise. The hotel was spotless, all facilities worked perfectly, the bed was most comfortable and all facilities work perfectly. The owner could not have been more helpful. We could not fault Bamboo for providing great value for money and being a perfect place for a...

My wife and I were more than happy with the room.It was clean and centrally located. Loved walking along the waterfront, so close to restaurants. The owners were friendly and helped with all our enquiries. Will come back.

We are fussy hotel people, which means we only like staying in 4 star+ places, and therefore booking Bamboo Motor Inn we did so with a bit of trepidation. However, we throughly enjoyed our time here. John the owner was very friendly and was helpful for any local knowledge we required. The location was ideal because it is an easy...

Absolutely love this place, the location is perfect for walking along the jetties at night and to walk and dine at the local RSL and Nicks! The only thing i would change if i could would be the mattress comfort, I'm spoilt at home with that! Great service and Location!!

Very clean budget accomodation in excellent location. However need to be aware that it operates like a budget airline where any extras are charged for, want you room serviced daily extra $20, want extra tea coffee sugar extra charge, use an extra bed in room additional charge. Overall, if you are aware of extra charges and want a cheap place...

Chose this place based on the reviews I read about the place. It was a little off my expectations. The room was a lot smaller than I expected. From the pictures, you couldn't really tell. So I've sketched out the floor plan of the room and attached it here. Booked a room for 5 persons and was a little surprised...

We always take note of reviews and were disappointed with your negative comments. We do advertise accurately with the size of room in square metres and the rooms are clearly pictured without the use of wide angle lenses. It is noted that you did not actually dimension the sketch you provided . This is a motel room with kitchenette and...

Stopped here on our way home, this place is simple and basic, if you are on a budget it will do , the place is clean, but if you want the best this is not the place for you. This place is only suitable for only one night, the manager is pleasant and accommodating

Have spent a few here. The rooms are plain and ok condition. Bed was very comfy and also Austar channels, which were a bit of a pain to work out. Basic facilities at a good price. Staff always friendly and helpful.

Self contained rooms with microwave, fridge and kettle for our convenience. Beds are pretty comfortable, and shower isn't too bad compared to other places I've stayed. Only 1 tv in kitchen area and not in main room. Right across the rd from the floating dragon and waling distance from everything. Friendly staff.
