Clean, quiet, upstairs accommodation no problem. Traffic didn't start until the morning so quiet overnight. Walking distance to local restaurants and club. Great overnight accommodation and rooms spacious.

This motel is slightly off the touristy area, though surrounded by other motel/hotels. A 15 minute walk to anything interesting. Great value for money. Couldn't get the free wi-fi to work, though. The owners/reception were very friendly and helpful.

Very pleasant room, and the beds were clean and comfortable, the whole set out of the room was good. I found the staff very pleasant and serviced the room every day of our stay, coming back each evening to a tidy neat room .. Would come back again.

We had a large room on the second floor with a double and twin beds with very efficient air-conditioning. Undercover parking adjacent to lower units. Walking distance to the River and a short drive to the beach. Very friendly owners who are making great improvements to the recently acquired property.

Excellent room. Great set out and layout of room and building. Close to restaurants and other facilities. Picked at last minute due to location and price but will definitely be back. Had a great stay. Beds comfortable and loved the lounge room and dining area in the family rooms.

One night stay at short notice. Picked at random due to location and price. Turned out to be an excellent choice! Reception very helpful and friendly on arrival. Room was clean, comfortable, free wifi, and the location is very convenient...close to clubs, pubs, restaurants, and the river. Excellent value. We will be back!

I was given a choice of rooms and chose upstairs for my 4 night stay. It was a renovated queen room. Some older features and furniture, but newly renovated bathroom. The overall standard of cleanliness was very high. The room was well stocked, a good size and the air-conditioning was quiet and effective. I found the bed a little firm,... More
