Second stay here for me. Restaurant on site, great convenience but I have not used it. The rooms are pretty standard mitel rooms but clean and comfy. Big TV and some satellite channels. Free Wifi which some major hotels still lack. Friendly staff.

This motel is on the main esplanade, a short walk to cafés, clubs, shops etc. I stayed in a lower floor courtyard room which was spacious, clean and comfortably furnished. The reception was fast and efficient and very helpful. The price was good value compared to others of the same rating. I would recommend this motel to anyone.

Close to restaurants and 90 mile beach, a short walk to the RSL, this motel was clean, friendly and the breakfast delicious. On the premises is Clancys restaurant, this was delightful, my porterhouse steak was wonderful, and was all at an acceptable price. Ample parking and a comfy bed. Would recommend to all. Free WiFi too!

We stayed 1 night only. It says it is 3 star but at $160 for the night it was over priced I think. We had a front room which gives you a view of the lake but also the traffic noise from the Princess Highway. The place was clean, bed excellent and linen OK. We booked a head thinking it... More

I realise this is an old hotel, as most are in the area, but a bit of general maintenance wouldn't go astray. When I checked in the guy at reception was rude and obviously assumed I have never stayed in a motel before. He made stupid remarks about the check out time and about ordering breakfast to our room. The... More

We have stayed there for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The room we stayed had a balcony with amazing lake view and every thing is close by. Hence we could easily walk around leaving the car behind. Staff was friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay again.

This hotel disapoints in many ways. Is is a clean place but preaty dated. The bed quality is below average. The problems do start with small things like shower water that changes its temperature by itself from ice cold to boiling hot, wifi connection that practically doesn't work or when it does the speed is very low. Do get to... More

Room was very comfortable and clean. Location is great! Was given a few recommendations for dinner, including on site restaurant, but also some other local places. Could have easily stayed longer, was very comfy for the two of us.
