Wonderful time during our stay and the Restaurant staff and Chef were amazing. The view overlooking the golf course and the ocean was refreshing. All the staff were very helpful. We had a very comfortable stay and a quiet nights sleep.Recommend to all my friends and family to stay there in future

Clean decent size room. Great sized bathroom. Bed very comfy! Very convenient to the city centre for business and shopping. Good bistro and bar. Car parking is only available outdoors but is secure (or at least patrolled by security) . Located on a very nice nice golf course.

My niece & I stayed for two nights. The motel was clean and comfortable except when I booked I asked for a room with a couch with a fold out bed. It was probably a single sized bed problem was when it was put into a bed it would not fit where the staff had placed it. We had to... More

We visited the Gong to attend an event and as Golfers this looked like the place to stay. Lovely staff. Clean and comfortable. Easy to get cases in/out. Food on site, along with a bar and Pokies. Great view from the room of the Golf Course and the Ocean. Nothing to really complain about. Easy stay. Would go again.

Great staff and location. Excellent views over the Golf Course and ocean. The food in the restaurant was very good and reasonably priced. If I were to be picky the only complaint I had was that I could hear the person next door through an interconnecting door. I will definitely stay there again.

With only about 20 rooms this little hotel is a gem. I love the spot across the golf course and the ocean. Perfect. Staff were extremely friendly and the room was comfortable and clean. It is not a long walk from very good restaurants. For breakfast or lunch visit the City West café which is about a 25 minute walk... More

I would probably stay here again but would be disappointed if the furniture isn't upgraded soon particularly the Sofa Bed. If you need to use a sofa bed stay at a different hotel. My parents had a better night the day before in one of the single rooms. We have stayed here in the past a number of times but... More
