while the room was a little dated, it was very well furnished, the bed was great, and it was so clean! we will be back to stay for certain! the location was near some shops so we could grab a few snacks and have a nice quiet evening.

I have searched your name in our system and I can not find you at all so I think that you did NOT stay at this motel at all. Unfortunately anyone can write a review on Tripadvisor even if you have not stayed at the motel. It is unfair to the establishments. I am going to report this review and... More

We booked in for a single night as part of a group in Dapto for business. Our group occupied 6 of the 25 rooms. Not one of us will be returning. The towels were the nicest thing about the place and we appreciated the early check in. The dated decor could be overlooked but the poor service left us all... More

Thankyou for your review. Your children were left alone in the room while you moved tables and chairs into the other end of the car park to have a party. you could not see the room from where you were sitting or keep an eye on the children. They were screaming so loud that we could hear them in the... More

It was a great place for a night with our boys, they loved the pool. The room had everything we needed plus the perfect layout with the second room having a door that can be closed off the main room. :-) The spa bath was the most comfortable bath I have ever been in! It was a little drive from... More

We stayed in a Family Room with our three children. The Room was very clean and really comfortable. The kids loved the indoor pool and the Staff were extremely Friendly even when our children asked them a thousand questions. We will be back!!

Stayed two nights over the Easter long weekend. The room was outdated but that's something that doesn't bother me. The water pressure was the worst thing, either boiling hot water or freezing cold water that came out in a dribble. Being a busy weekend they were pretty full up so no point in bringing it up which leads me to... More

The owner and staff very accommodating and helpful. Clean and comfortable, had basic essentials, microwave, cutlery, plates, toaster and jug. Good breakfast, but you can make your own. I found the room comfortable. They provided a disable room for my parents, this was well set up for someone with limited mobility. Good budget family friendly accommodation close to family.

My daughter and son-in-law booked the Elsinor Motel, Dapto for 2 nights (Sat and Sun) in July, 2014. When payment was made on the Friday, we requested that we look at the room. Peter, front desk person, said no! Then added that it was being cleaned. The Saturday night was booked for son-in-law and grandson to have a boys night... More

Thankyou for your review. Firstly when you came to book the room there was a guest in the room so that was the reason you could not be shown it. Then when they came to check in the room was still being cleaned(early check in) so you have mixed the days up. We never tell a guest they can not... More

We stayed here 2 nights on a weekend for a sporting tournament because it was the only hotel available that wasn't >$200.

There was a couple of people still in their rooms when I done the service of the rooms and when asked if they needed anything or anything done all they wanted was fresh towels, one room wanted extra towels.

We stayed at this place recently and before that 20 years ago . Was disappointed to find it hasn't changed . Nothing has been updated and things look old and worn .. Water pressure wasn't there and mattress wasn't firm... Place was tidy and clean.. Place defiantly needs a face lift for price charged. Other than that we enjoyed a... More

Hi, The room you stayed is requested many times by return guests. I do not understand guests that do not complain when they are, they tell us what a lovely stay they had and the room was lovely and then put up a complaint. What more can I say. The pictures that are up are exactly what the rooms look... More
