This is an older style Motel in a great location right opposite the beach. Even though it is on the Esplanade the location is quiet. The onsite managers are extremely pleasant & welcoming. The rooms are dated but provide Clean Good Quality Linen and complementary toiletries. The bed was comfortable. Our room provided Clean Crockery & Cutlery, a Fridge, Kettle,... More

We would not have stayed here except it was close to a function and we could walk to and from the event. The Waltzing Matilda Motel is basic and old but is clean and in the end that is the most important thing. I was a little intrigued though as I could not find a smoke alarm in the room... More

We have stayed here three times now. It's in a great location. We always get a room on the ground floor looking over the ocean. Great to sit outside having a coffee. The facilities are old but clean. AC is a bit noisy but did the job. Bed very comfortable. Will stay again.

Cheap motel (which wasn't actually that cheap). This motel is in a beautiful spot but desperately needs an upgrade. Comfortable enough for one night but the air conditioner was terrible and the furniture was old and tired. Unable to access the Wi-Fi even outside. Friendly welcome after we managed to find the proprietor but not a great motel.

We took the lower priced $95 unit and the bed was barely a double..too small for two. Shower had hot water and towels clean. Bonus was the toaster and plates and cutlery, so as one could make a small brekky in the morning. The only real reason to stay here, is it's position on the waterfront at Margate beach and... More

We had one of the non-sea view motel rooms for less than 100 AUD, but you get what you (don't) pay for: the room is ok clean, but asks for redecoration, barren walls, your head on the quite short bed ending right on it and you can feel some springs of the mattress. A/C from the seventies, very loud and... More

This was an older style Motel in a good location right opposite the beach. Quiet location even though it is on the Esplanade. We stayed 3 nights and had to ask for a change of linen. You get what you pay for.
