When we booked this room (n.1) we knew it was a budget room... It was clean and the basis things were provided... Luckily we had our own heater as the only heating in the room was an old strip wall heater. We paid $88

Good and reasonable for an overnighter clean, reasonably comfortable, old style rooms, no complaints, it is what it is. Good value overnighter, close to club, on the river front, had a good night sleep.

on the water, walk to the club, we looked at all the options but none had ALL the benefits, like price location and really nice hosts, Chris is somewhere, just a good bloke and he will look after you, you just know when you feel comfortable and reasonable

Great place for the night while we were on our road trip to Melbourne. Although it was raining, we could not fully enjoy this lovely town. The motel was clean, bed was comfortable and was in a quiet location. Very good welcome from Chris with everything explained. I left my pillow there and they very kindly organised to post it...

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.
