This motel is easy to find and has the usual front door parking. Checking in was easy and the staff were all very friendly. 2% surcharge for credit card payments was a bit of a disappointing surprise, but I guess it's not unusual. The location is close enough to Mollymook and Ulladulla's main drag, but I would recommend driving most... More

My husband and I stayed here on a Saturday night on a spur of the moment stay in Ulladulla. We are normally 5 star, club room and valet parking type of people, so were unsure as to how we would go in a traditional older style drive up motel. From the moment we checked in to the moment we left... More

Stayed as a solo traveller and would definitely stay again. Friendly, spotlessly clean and all the thoughtful little touches that make you feel at home. My overnight stay included a continental breakfast which arrived on time and beautifully presented. As a weird little side note I also loved that my room had a big window for natural light - something... More

We were in town for a funeral and owner Kathy could not have been more helpful with information and made the room available to us for late checkout which was very much appreciated. Iron, hair dryer and tea coffee making supplies are included and air con worked well on a cold and rainy night. Extra blankets and very comfy beds.... More

Our stay at Sandpiper was midweek, and was on a special price.... cheaper than camping, with lots of amenities. Close to highway, and because of that I brought earplugs, so was undisturbed. To be fair, all the Motels in this area are right on the Highway, so road noise would be an issue with any of these places. this isn't... More

Small room on the main road with moderate noise at night, all rooms close to the road. Extremely small bathroom. Sheets and towels ok quality. Bed average. Short walk into town. Would have marked a four for cleanliness except for the small coach roach on the curtain as we left. Upon check-in I was handed two WiFi vouchers and told... More

Thankyou somtamandshiraz for taking the time to make a reveiw. Just so the general public can understand, our room rates do not include a charge for wifi. We offer the ability for guests to use our wifi FREE of charge. We are in a semi rural area where conectivity is sometimes an issue.(Especially when there are storms). We therefore suggest... More

Ticked all the boxes for a comfortable, clean, budget stay. Good location -downhill walk to shopping strip, KFC across the road and a nice stroll along the harbour to the circular track on the lovely headland. Good service and the complimentary vouchers for Funland went down a treat with the kids.

Arrived tired and hot, greeted by friendly staff. Asked for a quiet room and was given a room behind office. The room had air con, fan, was very clean and had a very comfortable bed. The motel is a quick stroll past the pretty Ulladulla Harbour to the shops. Dinner at the local bowling club was excellent - also walking... More
