The hotel doesn't do itself justice by the look of the front of it.. The Motel rooms are modern and very comfortable. The complex is within walking distance of the main street shops. Last night we had the special a $10 steak and veg, it was great we will be eating here again tonight.

I don't think this place warrants such terrible reviews from previous guests. We stayed here for one night for a birthday party nearby. The room was very clean. It was close to shops and restaurants. The view you get is of the car park but it is only a two/three star hotel. I'm not sure what else people expect to... More

You walk in the sliding door and find, on the far wall, your "kitchen" area which comprise of a bar fridge and 3 cups and saucers and 3 spoons. The basin doubles as the bathroom and kitchen basin and that is where you will be brushing your teeth. The aircon was ancient. For the price I would normally write it... More

Husbands boss shouted the room. Last minute Sunday night after ten hour drive- loved it. Meals great and good prices ended up staying two nights slept like a log. No view of the water contrary to the name. Noisy garbage trucks Monday morning.

This motel was a last minute booking through the web,site without seen. It is clean but the bed was the by far the worse we have slept on,(you could feel the springs ) so an upgrade is defiantly warranted. They could also benefit by buying a toaster and wouldn't hurt supplying plates, bowls and cutlery, this place doesn't offer a... More

Recently renovated but basic with a interesting pub literally next door as apart of the building. Friday night was loud music and being a few feet away was not exactly enjoyable and the bed..well better to sleep on the floor..CHEAP A $60 room for $99 ..

I was happy and would be happy to stay here again. Paid $99/night which I think was reasonable to good value for money considering the quality of the room. As well the adjoining hotel is a good place for a meal,beer and entertainment (we stayed on a Friday night and they had a singer playing guitar). The motel rooms seem... More
