I booked this accommodation on the fly during a disorganised drive down the coast. The receptionist was very helpful, I paid over the phone, and was able to check in late. Room was basic, clean, and had everything I needed. Great place for passing through. It is also in a really convenient position on the highway for travellers passing through.... More

This was just a stop over on our way to Brisbane. They upgraded us to a room at the back of complex away from the road noise. Room was very large, bed comfy, plenty of tea & coffee with fresh milk provided.

Best attribute is that they have a few rooms specifically for pets. The motel generally is like so many other country motels but few offer rooms for your pets - a huge plus. Only a few minutes out of town so convenient for the Jetty and other avtivities without being right in the middle of town.

This was a last minute booking, as our hotel we booked was disgusting. I gave them a call at 12pm and they had me in my room by 1pm no fuss. They even had a room accomodating my pet dog. Great friendly service and I'll definitely be staying there again.

Always a great place for a stop over, especially when travelling with pets. Over the years this property has not failed to provide exceptional service and cleanliness. The restaurant has always and continues to provide great room service. The owners are striving to improve the property, therefore some of the rooms inclusions are 4* surrounded by 3* styling from the... More

We were absolutely blown away by the wonderful hospitality shown by the staff here. First of all, this is a motel, don't come here looking for luxurious rooms with an amazing view... You get what you pay for, in this case, you pay quite a little and you get quite a lot! Rooms are spacious, big and comfortable beds (best... More

This was our third stay as a stop over between Sydney and Gold Coast over the past 6 years. Mum, dad and four kids aged between 8 & 14. Just can't beat the size of the room, the separate rooms, shower, the pool, and the friendly service. Do yourself a favour as well, if you stay here, try the restaurant... More

Have stayed here many times and its always been good. This time we requested two rooms side by side and as close to the restaurant as possible as my elderly Mother was traveling with us. Management obliged and we were most appreciative. It does have to be said though these rooms are not a patch on those we've had during... More

Hi Murray, Thank you for your review. I am sorry you weren't quite satisfied with your room this stay. Most of our budget rooms have been upgraded with new bathrooms, but we still do have a few to finish. If ever you need transport around the property, please don't hesitate to ask us for a buggy transfer to make it... More
