This was a great clean motel, very cosy and a quiet stay, comfy beds too. They we're really polite and very accommodating (especially when allowing us to charge our electric car overnight). Chris was probably the nicest guy I've met.

Shabby motel, showing its age, how this could be described as luxury is beyond me. This kind of offering lets Australia down. Batemans Bay is wonderfully situated, yet the town is dire, cheap,and uninspiring. Could not leave soon enough. Sort yourself out.

Dear Jonathan282 What a dire review!!! We are not sure where you got the 'luxury' tag from as we are a Budget Motel and don’t pretend to be anything else. We cater for a variety of people from all cultures and most of our Guests are happy to accept us for what we are. Usually guests come directly to us... More

Very helpful and friendly owner. Family room was a good size nice and neat and clean. Pretty comfy beds and the air con worked really well. Value for money would definitely stay again. Walking distance to town good fishing for the kids directly across the road.
