We had a peaceful and pleasant stay here. The view from our room was lovely, looking out to bushland and nothing but trees. There were blue butterflies dancing around in the bushes every morning. The bedding was clean and changed regularly. The motel is a little old but had all the features required. Clean, spacious shower, clean spa bath. The wireless internet was quite unreliable from our room. The pool was nice but unfortunately under repair for a few of the days of our stay. I only had one meal at the restaurant; chicken and sweetcorn soup. It wasn’t great and because of this, didn’t return to the restaurant. The motel is in an excellent location and the staff are very helpful and friendly. Tea Gardens overall is a really nice place to visit.

Motel was simple but it wasn’t expensive. Basic but kept clean. Like it cause it’s kinda in the woods, really peaceful. Staff were very friendly. Right next to it is their clubhouse where you could get good choices of drinks, and a restaurant as well with great food and reasonable price. Overall the whole experience was a very peaceful stay in serenity, with friendly people, good pub to drink, nice little restaurant and all in all very reasonable priced.

Stayed for 2 nights between Christmas & New Year. Apparently the motel was full but you wouldn't have known it as it was amazingly quiet and peaceful.
The room was enormous and looked out onto bush at the back of the building.
Comfortable beds and a terrific shower.
Staff all very welcoming and friendly.
Added bonus is the bistro onsite.
Thoroughly recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back facing the bush.
