Lovely motel, value for money. Wonderful staff, clean rooms. Good clean pool. Excellent service. Would recommend to anyone wanting budget but lovely clean motel. Staff were great, I made a mistake in booking but when I called to ask for help she immediately fixed everything up and put us in a bigger room at no extra charge! Very impressed, better... More

Didn't expect too much when we booked this small motel room with a queen size and a single bed for only one night, it turns out to be the best experience for us. The room is very clean, the bed is very comfortable, we had a very good sleep.

You don't have to pay much on luxury hotel around cowes. We stayed in one of family room. The room size was massive…the bed was comfortable, very cleaned. Everything was beyond our expectation. Above all, the owner was very kind and friendly. When we checked in, I told them that we are going to see the penguin parade, looking at... More

We stayed in a 1 bedroom self contained unit with our baby over the summer holidays. The lady at the front desk was so friendly and welcoming :) Room was clean and large. A few extra utensils would have been great (we had nothing to flip our eggs haha). It was a very quiet location walking distance from everything. free... More

Fantastic rooms. Clean, tidy and modern. Management only too happy to assist with any enquiry. Highly recommended. Motel is located 2 minutes walk to town centre, but in a very quiet location. Have stayed at this motel on a few occasions and will not hesitate to stay here again the future.

The owner let us in and gave us a room at an excellent price at 11pm after a long day. He even gave us the key before we had been down the street to get money to pay (he had closed up his EFTPOS facilities for the day). We were so thankful! The room even had a spa. It was... More

We had a wonderful stay at Seahorse Motel. We stayed at room number 6. The room was new and extremely clean. The lady owner Catherine was very friendly and helpful. We did not bring enough warm clothes for the Penguin Parade and she lent us some jackets when she knew that. It's very kind of you, Catherine! Without the jackets,... More

This was my first motel experience. I must admit, on first approach I was not impressed because the exterior looked somewhat dated, and from the outside it felt a bit Bates Hotel-ish… I was wrong. The room we were in had clearly been recently renovated, and it was extremely clean. It was spacious for what we paid, and it was... More

What a divine motel! Rooms updated and all is new. Very large room (we stayed in number 6). Very clean and the owner operator very friendly and helpful. Cost us $125 for the night so it was good value when you see the rooms. I would recommend it. Doesn't look great from outside but what a pleasant surprise.
