We stayed here last year and had been rather satisfied so decided to stay again on our way to the Gold Coast. We were however slightly disappointed this time. The place is simple but clean. I would have said tidy and organised last year but this year, as you open the cupboard to hang some clothes, you are met with... More

We stayed here as a stopover to the Gold Coast and found it a comfortable clean room with a little courtyard. This would be very useful for small children. There is a lovely clean pool out the back and a BBQ area which we made use of. Only thing which was frustrating was that the Wifi didn't connect properly to... More

It's not a bad place but could do with a little face lift. Clean and quiet and everything works. Good for quick stays but might want a little more room if staying for a few days. The pool would be great in warmer weather.

I firmly believe in supporting the local market but these owners do little to help themselves. This motel was a quick stop on our honeymoon. I wasn't expecting much but I was disappointed. There are doors between each room act as noise gateways. We had a noisy neighbour which resulted in me requesting another room. The entire place is tired... More

The motel took a booking six months ago for Special Olympics and then on the weekend needed said the rooms were not available. They had not asked for a deposit at the time of the booking.

Hi portwestie! Unfortunately the organiser for the Special Olympics did not book the correct dates for their carers and athletes, and upon trying to rectify her mistake at the last minute we were unfortunately unable to accommodate the group for the complete duration of their last minute booking change as one of the three rectified nights conflicted with another group...

I stayed in the motel for 2 nights during a roadtrip from Melbourne to Brisbane. It is on the main road into Port but traffic noise didn't bother me at night. The room had a little table and a kitchenette with kettle, toaster, microwave and an electric frypan. Breakfast was included in my room rate which consisted of cereal and... More

I called this place up to sort out an issue with booking which was made through a booking site. Not only did the staff member called me a liar and said my 'husband' rang earlier to say we're running late but also told me he'll hold off any charges until I sort the issue out with the police authority in...

Thank you for your comment. So sorry to hear you are not happy. Unfortunately, as previously stated there is no refund for trying to cancel at 9 PM on the night of stay during the busy Christmas period. We are a family owned and run business and this greatly impacts on us during this busy time. This guest did not... More
