While this Motel is a bit dated for the rooms if your just looking for a reasonably priced room for the night in the central part of town then this Motel does the trick. I would recommend this Motel more if your looking for additional amenities such as the lovely pool and spa area especially for younger family members. Whilst... More

Very old and outdated motel - it was like stepping back into the 80s. Old decor, there's an old clock/radio built into the bed side table, a shower curtain, etc. For the price I'd expect a bit better quality than this - especially in Margaret River. There is a big Mozzie problem in the room - I killed 10 in... More

Accommodation in Dunsborough was at a premium over New Year so we had to pay "top dollar" for a family room in this traditional motel. The room was large and comfortable with fully equipped kitchenette but fittings and decor rather dated and in need of a facelift. The sliding doors opened on to nice gardens, BBQ and picnic and pool... More

This hotel is old. It is clean and an effort to refurbish has been made. The water pipes rattle and the people in the next room sound like they are in the room with you. I could hear the toilets in my block being flushed not to mention the shower or sink water being turned on and the pipes reverberating... More

if you just need a place for a night or two in this area, this Motel provides just the basics. if you want breakfast in bed, or room service of any kind, better find somewhere else. Clean and tidy but definitely more Motel than Hotel. No breakfast provided, but great places in the area to try (within walking distance), also... More

We arrived at about 8:20pm the Friday night we had booked at this hotel. We had booked online a few days earlier and noted that it will be a late check-in. The reception was closed when we arrived so we phoned the motel's number which eventually got through to someone. The man was very angry over the phone and subsequently... More

Needed a night's stay in Dunsborough and this was the place we got. It was clean and neat and suited our purpose. Being very tired after a big day, slept well, shower was great and close to everything you could want.

We booked a twin room with an additional bed but when checked in, the staff offered us an upgrade with AUD10 per pax more. He said the room which we upgraded to would be more spacious. There were 1 double bed and 2 single beds in the room and a small kitchenette. Room was basic but clean. Didn't like the... More

The headline says it all. Plain, concrete block sort of place with motel organization of rooms but everything works. Small shower but good water pressure, along with amenities and hair dryer. AC worked fine, and generally quiet place, although we had AC on most of the time. Full mini-kitchen could be nice for some especially with an extended stay.

We had a pleasant stay here. Nothing fancy but was sufficient for us. Room was clean and well equipped for our 2 night midweek stay. Shower was great, not like some places that have little water pressure and it was steaming hot. Just what you want after hicking for a few hours. We also sat in the beautifully heated spa... More
