Is the Motel dated? yes but for $120 on a bank holiday weekend what more could you expect? We were in room 16 just open the door and the ocean view is there. The room had aircon, a modern TV and a comfortable bed- everything we needed for one night. The owner was very welcoming showing us where the main...

The first question the owner asked, was: 'how would you like to pay?' Not: 'Welcome, how are you, how was your trip', but 'how would you like to pay...' An ideal place for roadworkers, who are drinking beer from 6.00 to 8.00 am on their balcony... The place is old and not very clean.

Very dissapointed in the service! But the room was only $99 for the night so I should of expected it. My partner and I arrived on a sunday after lunch after driving 4 hours. As I had a hospital appointment early monday morning. No one was in the reception area and door was locked. Room keys were left in the...

What a pleasure to stay in this immaculate apartment - just a walk across the road to the beach and BBQ area- we had most our dinners there! I would have loved an aircon in the third room as we were there in a heatwave, but am sure it would have been fine any other time Thank you to staff...

We booked in for two nights due to being evacuated from our home, which was under the threat of a bush fire. A stressful and anxious situation was made easier by the lovely people that run this hotel. So often in this corporate world we are faced with rules and regulations that can leave us feeling like a number or...

This hotel could be fantastic, with some investment..... Out dated, lacks ambience and is soul less. Don't be fooled by the high rating The saving grace are the people managing it are pleasant and work with what they have. The views are to die for anytime of the day

Spent one night here and no dramas at all, Yes the place is a little old and could do with some maintenance But we had a great night sleep, bed was comfy and room very clean. Wonderful to wake up to a lovely view without paying a fortune for it :)

Our room was not great, peeling paint in the bathroom, dripping shower, no wifi reception. Not a very good experience at all. We did however complain to management and to their credit they did transfer us to another room for our next night, this was more respectable. The reviews I read were acceptable, maybe their rooms were ok, and their...

Great location. Close to beach and city but the room was a shocker. Damp peeling walls. Continual dripping shower. Dirty and run down. Next day, after being told we could not change rooms, managed to change. Next room was much better but cannot recommend this motel. Standard is unreliable.

This place was just ok, if you are looking for somewhere you can use wifi, this is not the place. You should also be prepared to do your own dishes if you use anything from the kitchen. This place is also lacking maintenance. Not somewhere I would stay again. The only thing that is great about it, is the location.
