We stayed here for 1 night for a quick getaway. Location is great. Does over look the ocean, great views, make sure you are upstairs. It is only 3 star .and is priced accordingly, and you get what you pay for. Rooms are fine,balcony is great. It is a 5 minute walk from the station, walk off station, turn left... More

This older style motel needs to be spruced up & the reasonable tariff reflects this. The site is approved to be redeveloped, so I can understand why refurbishment wouldn't be viable. Managers are friendly & welcoming & were very helpful with restaurant recommendations & road directions etc. Our room (with balcony) was on the first floor & had great ocean... More

We stayed here just one night, and for our needs it was fine, however I'm not sure I would be wanting to stay much longer. It's quite tired, the decor old and there is no noise insulation between rooms! Rooms are basic, bathrooms old and beds need replacing. I believe there are plans to redevelop this current hotel into an... More

I stayed here with friends on a short getaway. The motel isnt new but the staff were lovely and helpful, it's a short walk to restaurants etc and clean, quiet & comfortable. A fine choice if you just need reasonably oriced accommodation. And a pkeasant view of the harbour from our 1st floor room!

Walked into this motel late (8pm-ish) on a Saturday night in winter - good value for money at $109, rooms clean and comfortable Located close to the Blowhole and slightly away from the main strip which is a five minute walk away. Close to the train station

We spent 1 night there with our 4 yr old & enjoyed it. The room was comfortable with 1 queen & 1 single bed. Beach was very close & could hear the crashing waves. The view of the ocean was awesome. Got up early in the morning to see the huge waves crashing against the rocks & beach. Good eating... More

We stayed one night at this motel while driving the GOR. We found this motel to be ideally located central to activities and restaurants. The management was attentive and friendly. The motel compares very highly to all other motels we stayed on our drive and was priced quite reasonable for what we received.

Stayed in the motel for a work assignment in the area. Kerrie the host was super friendly and helpful in all things ! Very much appreciated. The location opposite the beach is really nice, although if you want to go for a real vacation there are loads of cabin options that might be better. However, when in the area for... More
