Centrally located, easy and pleasant walk into town. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the beds very comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful and I thought it was charming that they had a little 'swap a book' library where my son was thrilled to find a copy of a book he had recently lost before finishing. We chose this... More

I was lucky to come across Edelweiss Motel on Wotif. The rooms at Edelweiss Motel were basic but clean and spacious. The rooms have a small kitchenette with basic facilities. The motel has a swimming pool and access to tennis courts. They even offer free wifi to all guests. The staff is very friendly and I would highly recommend Edelweiss... More

Staff were great, very helpful and friendly. the unit itself was clean, well stocked and super convenient to get into town. can't think of anything bad to say the pool was a touch cold...but we had a spa pool in our room and ended up there most nights anyway. we'll happily stay there again next time we get a chance...

Great place and location, with fantastic hosts. A great time. Had a week there with three kids. Facilities were great, and a short stroll to the shops. Already planning to go back again with the family. Would definitely recommend. Thanks

We spent 2 nights in a very spacious studio unit with king size bed and spa bath. Super clean room with special touches. The wonderful hosts were very helpful. An older motel but Definitely great value. Spa pool was a treat.

If you are on a budget this is a very reasonably priced motel, particularly for a tourist area. The studio unit was smaller than many we have had but it was clean and comfortable and had a very spacious bathroom. The motel is handy to the waterfront, shops, restaurants etc. but is amazingly quiet. The hosts were very helpful, friendly... More

We were made very welcome and were given details & maps of where to go & what to see. Our studio was very comfortable & the attention to detail was very touching. We had complimentary milk, tea, coffee & chocholate which was most welcome considering the studio was self catering. We weren't there long enough to enjoy all the amenities... More

Very friendly, lovely and clean, service was second to none. An ideal location just 10 minute stroll to centre of town and all shops and cafés would recommend this motel as a well priced place to stay.
