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. So carers and athletes had to find other accommodation at the last minute. It appears he gave the rooms to hirer paying customers: The... More

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

My partner and I stayed here for three nights over the busy Xmas period and found it was exactly what we needed after a long drive. This is a great safe overnight stop over as it's close to the town so you can enjoy the sites and beaches. Rooms were good size, clean and comfortable with air con, foxtel 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

Excellent room and facilities. Decent bathroom size which is important where a lot these days are too cramped. Owners have excellent customer service skills. It was a lovely finish our two week holiday up North having a stop over in PM.

The motel is like many others on a main road. The road noise reduces greatly during the night and this could have been assisted in that it was winter. The facilites were exactly as we expected, and the bonus for me was that the Room No 1 right next to the main office had a small courtyard at the rear... More
