We spent one night in this older, but very well maintained motel. It is well positioned in Glenelg, within walking distance of the beach, restaurants and shops. The motel is meticulously clean. No cooking facilities. Perfect for a short stay.

We needed something close to the airport to catch our early morning flight- this one was a 15 minute taxi ride to airport. They have a phone just outside of reception that you can use to call a cab. Room was spacious enough for the 4 of us and it is close to restaurants. Room is a bit dated, cracked... More

Looking a bit tired now (very grubby carpet in our room) but offers value for money if you just want a reasonably priced place to lay your head overnight. It is motel style with parking right outside your room. You can get a breakfast on site but I didn't try it so can't comment. Rooms are reasonably sized and have... More

This motel was an excellent choice. Not brand new, but had everything we needed: plenty of room in the units, very clean, fantastically comfortable bed, friendly helpful owner, and very reasonably priced. It is an easy walk to the beach and cafes, and has a pool if you feel like a dip. Very good air con in rooms for hot... More

I've previously stayed here over 10 years ago and while the place is showing the wear and tear of time it is still very clean and functional. Friendly and fast check in. We stayed in a deluxe spa room with queen bed. The spa area is actually in the bedroom area with the bathroom separate. This was great as the... More
