This hotel reception shuts at 8.30pm!! VERY EARLY and they refuse to stay open past this time to check anyone in. My father indicated that we will be there between 10 and 11. This booking was made through bookings.com at 7,30pm so obvious that it would be that night. When my father rang to confirm our late check in and... More

Our family of 5 had a 3 day stay in the apartments..James was very pleasant on arrival and very informative of directions to the apartments. Also recommend local places to eat in walking distance.. Very comfortable beds, nice and clean.. Only complaint which is petty, I couldn't find a tea towel to dry the dishes we washed up, apart from... More

We looked on the website and the rooms were listed at $129. Called to book and they only had the deluxe room available for $209. The room was nice, although the toilet didn't work properly and there was no cable TV, only free to air. For over two hundred dollars I would have expected both of those things. The kicker... More

$99 on a normal night & $169 for a few nights out from Christmas, what a joke! A very old motel which they have done a few reno's to to try and tidy it up. The gardens need a sweep, and the reno's just look like a band aid.... Completely overpriced and crazy that they charged and extra rate of... More

As these reviews are anonymous and subsequently I can't justify the rate you have paid, or when it was, or by the number of guests you had or whether or not you paid a pet fee, or what type of room you had because I don't know who you are (and for many of the 'reviews' I get I'm sure... More

No wifi as promised, there was a problem with connection. Had one of the owners cats (yes there were about 3 cats and 3 dogs on the property) urinate on our motel room floor, and three other of their pets welcome themselves into our rooms. We had asked to use the PS3 with no prior knowledge that it would cost... More

This isn't a review. This is revenge for us taking action against a group of four half drunk, half drugged teenaged football hooligans with foul mouths and no accountability, running to mummy and daddy when they cause themselves problems! We have free wifi. I know, I use it myself. I set it up myself. You did tell me you were... More

Thank you for allowing us to bring our big puppy to your Motel, made life so much easier to have a break in driving back to Sydney, and for allowing us to park our boat in a spot easy to get out. I must say, I LOVE reading your responses to some guests comments. I am a Motel Manager &... More

Every word. I take every word of it to heart and in my eyes, the attacks are personal, their goal is to undermine my morale and to destroy my resolve to continue to build my business. It's hard to gather myself after reading some of the nonsense written, I spend most of the rest of the day feeling down about... More

Great motel, especially only one that we could find that was pet friendly. Very clean rooms, comfy beds only issue we found was getting in and out of the motel from the highway. Highly recommend staying here if you have fur-babies!!!

Nice and clean. TV, large shower, fridge, toaster, everything you need is here. No hair dryer. Ask for the room to be cleaned, they don't do it if you don't ask. Friendly staff. Nice deck to chill out at sunset and beautiful pool. I would recommend it.

My family and I were travelling from the Gold Coast to Sydney and decided to stay at Port Macquarie for one night to brake up the driving. After searching for a place to stay at 8 hotels(which were all fully booked out), we were pleasantly surprised when we came across the 'Koala Tree Resort'. We were wonderfully welcomed by the...
