Stopped here on our way through Victoria. We were given a complimentary upgrade which was very appreciated. Lovely room, comfy and well appointed. Free wifi was a bit slow and there was a mini bar and a restaurant on site. Happy to recommend.

We had a picturesque drive from Tathra along the Croajingolong Coast. The motel was close to all amenities. The second floor room was spacious enough to spread our stuff out and was spotlessly clean. The bed was comfy, but the sheets were pressed to perfection or to much starch in the wash. Making it a bit like sleeping in a... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in May and enjoyed our stay. The service was very good, the rooms of average size and standard, big bathroom, not a lot of walking around room in the unit, no kitchen or food preparation area. So unless you bring your own cutlery and crockery you cannot make even a cold breakfast.... More

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.
