Don't stay here. The one member of staff I spoke to was nice enough, but the place itself is the worst I have ever stayed at in Australia, The rooms could not be darker, dingier, or just generally worse. Locals shuddered when we said where we were staying.

This motel looks rundown from the outside and is very rundown on the inside. Staff were a mix - helpful and no help at all. The room was very basic , very dark and dated with a strange setup for toilet and shower cubicles. Pillows needed to be thrown out and replaced. Curtains didnot fit windows so sun streamed into...

This was one of the dirtiest motels I have ever had the displeasure to stay in. The website shows a clean Meditteranean style motel and because we were from NSW we expected what we saw on the website to be true. IT WAS NOT!!!! My husband and I stayed 2 nights and never will we do so again, even if... More

I let someone else book for me is the only excuse I have for not listening to what others have said here! 1960 this place might have been OK but now is very, very run down. Wooden steps rotted, rutted dirt driveway, park at your own risk in very limited parking. Not brave enough to swim in the pool. Rubbish... More

Playing 2 day golf tournament at headland golf club, needed a place nearby to stay. Photos looked great. What a shock when we got here, room smelt like cigarettes, air conditioner disgusting filthy, went to reception to change room gave us 2 options, not much better than the 1st room. This place is a dump and should be shut down.... More
