Location is great and the exterior looks clean and modern, but the room itself was pretty dour and in some need of a revamp. To be fair, the place is spotlessly clean and it's clear that some renovations are under way. However, the mattress was worn-out and pretty uncomfortable, so a good night's sleep was simply not forthcoming, unfortunately.

When we drove into the driveway and into the car park of this motel we were shocked by the look of the place. The front facade has been done up but the outside of the rooms has not. This is a very old motel but it appears the owners are slowly renovating. Even though this was a very old motel... More

Stayed in the deluxe room, which it wasn't , but it was clean enough and it had a big bed. It was equipped with fridge and microwave and had good wifi connection from room. At best I would say it was a standard room This hotel is in good location for beach and shops

This Motel was a perfect solution as a midway overnight stopover. We were impressed with cleanliness, welcoming staff and excellent value for $$ An added bonus was the provision of a kitchenette which enabled us to kick-start our next day's travel with a healthy breakfast We stayed again for 2 nights on our return trip. This pleasant accommodation was perfect... More

The lady at the reception was so friendly and helpful and the rooms reasonably clean and tidy. Would definitely recommend if you seek value for money. Very close to the beach and Surf Life Saving Club for a nice breakfast especially. Our room lacked a dish washing sink that did not matter much to us for our one night stay.

We booked a room for an overnight stay on our way down south. We didn't arrive until after 11pm but this was no problem for the lovely manager who ensured we had a car park and room key sorted for our late arrival. The room and bathroom are very basic but they are spacious and good for a stop over... More

Very pleasant one night stay. The room was clean and fresh with the bed and pillows being very comfortable. Eva is very friendly and attentive. Convenient, quiet location with the beach across the road, and the Bowling Club within a 2 minute walk where we enjoyed an excellent meal and next morning breakfast at Cafe Aqua opposite the Bowling Club.

My wife and I were traveling tpo Sydney and stayed overnight at this motel. As we were arriving very late at night, the manager offered to leave a key in a room for us. The manager rang us when we were about 1 hour away to see how we were traveling and to see if we were caught in the... More

Recently stayed for one night. The staff were lovely, especially as we had to check in late. Rooms clean, small, yet adequate for our needs. Great location for those wanting to be near the beach. Bed very comfortable.
