We stayed here in July this year in a 2 bedroom apartment,close to shops and town centre. Reasonable rates and room was clean and reception staff very helpful. We stayed in winter I can imagine that during summer this place would get really crowded,the only downside was the lift from carpark to rooms use the stairs.

Clean comfortable well equipped apartment. Reception staff friendly. Great location Thin walls. Kitchen staff could smile when interacting with guests. Breakfast buffet poor. Had to go downstairs to order room service, something I thought you did from your room. No towel racks in bathroom.

Great service. Clean and tidy. Refurbished bathroom - great! Quiet location. Our room right at back away from main road. Had a cooked breakfast every morning - tasted just like home! Exceptional value for money - room and the breakfast!

Good nights rest in a great location. After traveling a long distance with a new baby it was good to find a room that was big enough for a pram and travel cot with other baby stuff. Really good staff.

The room is pretty ok and everything is fine but we had the only bulb in the bathroom blow out - ie the one above the sink?! Whys there not a full room light? But anyways, forced to use the bathroom in the dark as reception isn't open and no contact details to fix such things. Ok, we aren't paying... More

We were road weary and looking for a place to stay one night before heading on to Melbourne, and this was the right place at the right time. The room was clean and quiet and the gentleman who checked us in was super nice and helpful. I didn't have the breakfast, but they were nice enough to let me use... More

There is nothing flash about this motel but it is very fairly priced for what you get and staff are very welcoming. The beds are comfortable, rooms are spacious with all the expected fittings. In a great location across the road from the fishing boats. Highly recommended for a one night visit while travelling through.
