I Stayed for I night, initially I thought it was dated but soon put that out of my mind the room was spacious, comfortable, a free standing cooker and a fridge. There was a pool on sight which looked really inviting. The site is close to amenities and shops. The bed was very comfortable, I would have stayed longer but... More

Spacious and pleasant enough room for the price, very clean, good linen and towels, nice pool. No aircon, but a decent fan. Handy to town. A block away is Morell's artisan bakery for excellent morning coffee and pastries. Will stay again when back in Gizzy.

Having arrived on a rainy day after a long drive it was good to, once again, be welcomed by Stu and relax in a comfortable clean room for a good nights sleep to recharge. The gym around the corner is free for visitors (just take your key to the gym reception and town is a short walk, A great stay... More

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.
