Mum has stayed at the Beachside Motor Inn every year for the past 3 to 4 years and so she chose this accommodation for us. Karen, the owner, was very nice and welcoming, even though the weather was so muggy. We arrived earlier than expected and Karen said we could book in early with no problems. Karen booked our tour...

We had a fantastic stay at the beachside motor inn. In a family room with 2 queens there was plenty of room. There was 2 rooms both with a bed in each. The staff were very plesant and helpful and the pool was great. Being on such a busy corner I thought traffic noise would be an issue. This wasn't... More

We booked online and were allocated a room on the side street but next to bogans who were settling in to drink for the night. The bathroom was awful and we realised we couldn't stay unless we were upgraded to a better position where we felt safe. That was arranged (irritably!) and the towel rack fell off the wall, the...

Sorry l cannot ever remember anyone complaining about any room nor do l remember giving anyone an upgrade to another room in the last month. My laundry is done by the local laundry service here as is everyone else's. I cannot see why the sheets would not be crisp and clean and smell accordingly. If you had a problem with... More

First management mishandled booking. We put this to one side and decided to ignore the long black hairs on the linen. The next day management became abusive when we requested fresh towels. Apparently they refuse to service rooms unless requested by guests, and then refuse to provide clean towels after midday. Facilities were poor (limited cutlery - why no forks... More

I would like to thank you for taking the time for all the reviews, here, Wotif and Golden Chain. Your booking was done with Wotif and you requested a twin room which you received. No mishandling of booking. Our motel linen comes straight from the laundry service and is changed in every room when it is cleaned so l cannot... More

Management seemed helpful at check in but we soon realised that once the account was paid the hospitality stopped. They also entered the room while we were out for dinner, turned off fans and air con!!! Car park was taken by another guest and when I questioned management I was told to park on the grass. Just not helpful and... More

Thank you for taking the time to review. I have taken on board your comments and went and checked out the hot water and it works well. As it was very busy over christmas that may have contributed to the fact of fluctuating controls of water when many people use the showers at the same time. Unfortuately this cannot he... More

We stayed in a family room upgraded by the owners from a standard room. The room was clean and tidy but tired and in bad need of maintenance. The bathroom area stank badly. There was a problem with the shower in that you got either only hot or only cold. The toilet made a terrible sound for several minutes every... More
