4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Stayed just the one night with work but would have liked to stay longer. When you first walk in you think its a bit dated but that's the only negative. I stay in motels 3 weeks out of 4 with work and I wish they put me places like this more often. The room was clean, spacious, good size dining... More

A bit of an older type motel with dated rooms but clean and tidy and spacious all the same. Great swimming pool and a small kids play area. Pricing is good. Handy to town just a short walk. Beaches just a short drive also.

We stayed in a studio room for one night. It was a good size, very clean and had a comfortable bed. Good sized salt water pool for a swim at the end of a long driving day. Moden bathroom with good water pressure in the shower. Free internet.

A nice place to stay with a large sitting area and 2 separate rooms. We had a room down the back, so it was also very quiet. Nice pool and friendly staff. A short drive into the main town. Plenty of suitcase and clothing storage also if you are staying for awhile.

I stayed here for four days with my family. Very good quality unit, quiet and well furnished. The pool and amenities were good. The owner mildly put us off by greeting us and asking if we had thought about our carbon footprint, but everything from then on was spot on. I agree that it could do with air conditioning though...

Although this city is the gate way to the East Coast it is a must as a stop ove and no better place to stay is Teal Motor Lodge. Not only are the rooms great but terific area for the kids to play and give you a rest. I will be back.

Great comfortable unit, awesome location, so close to town & supermarket to self cater for meals etc. Units are well fitted out. Pool looking lovely but I wasn't brave enough, even tho it got to 24c in Gizzy in October! Prompt breakfast service & well catered. Great price too! Thanks again :)

Very cold unit with a heater that was totally inadequate for the size of the unit, very high ceilings and window with no curtain coverage. Had to sleep with electric blanket on all night and the blankets from the spare bed on me as well. As the units are very old, but they have been modernised in the furnishings,they obviously... More

The 2 bedroom unit was at the back of the complex away from the main street traffic noise. Walking distance from a supermarket it was fully kitted out to make your own meals. Beds were queen and a single in one room, two singles in another with a pull out sofa in the living area, perfect for our party of... More
