We booked our room direct with Linda in July, she was very helpful. Our stay was 14-21 December 2015. The room we selected Premium Ocean View Suite (upstairs) was overlooking the ocean and sea baths, with a balcony. Lovely ocean breezes. We stayed in that room for 6 nights, it had all that was required for a comfortable stay, including... More

Excellent service, booking had been booked incorrectly by agency. Staff sorted this out fairly quickly and upgraded our room to a spa room. Spacious , views over the Strand. A little noisy at night being roadside.

Situated across from Strand and close to resturants shops etc this is a basic motel where you can hear everyone using shower etc. Room large enough, clean and to our surprise had a decent size fridge. Also nice to see toaster to keep costs down. Nice touch having basin to rinse crockery bathroom sinks never big enough. Bathroom had been... More

Budget accom but price a bit dear for quality of the rooms. Cleanliness ok. The single bed was a bit unfortable but the queen was good. Good position across the road from the strand. The really good thing about this place was the restaurant at the front. Really excellent staff and price and quality of the food great.

Our 'budget queen' room was in a sad state of disrepair. Extremely bad value for the price. Rusty fridge, and the door to our room was warped and didn't seem to close properly! The bed & bathroom were clean - no complaints about the housekeeping. Just a really depressing room. We had such trouble connecting to their wireless internet, we... More

Right across from beach and close to a range of eating places. The walk along the beach front is one of the best in Australia. The motel needs a little love and some rooms need renovating badly. The dining area at the front is great and breakfast choices are good. Overall not bad for short stay and budget minded. ,

We booked the Premium ocean view room and were not disappointed. The room looked great and has everything you need for a few days stay. It has a nice kitchenette and a huge bathroom. The location on the strand is great but a little far away from the city if you want to walk there. The staff is very kind... More

For us, this motel delivered in spades. Ideally located opposite the Rock Pool at Kissing Point on The Strand it was an easy stroll to the beach, the pool and the restaurants in that vicinity. Our room (10) faced the beach and had a little fenced front yard that also opened onto the pool. The room had been recently refurbished... More
