A very convenient type of accommodation for us, as we have toddler, and the bottom units at the back each have a small, secure courtyard attached; perfect for our 2-year-old. We stayed there twice, once at the end of 2014 and again in early 2015. The rooms are nice and large, the beds are quite comfy. However, the rooms ARE... More

If you are looking for a place to unwind, feel comfortable, this is the place. Vicki at reception will help you with picking the right room, and anything you may need. The restaurant is top class. Even the people we forget most times, the cleaning staff were happy and helpful. Don't go past this motel.....great place.

We got a lovely and spacious corner room with windows on two sides.Therefore we had a spectacular view over the Tasman Sea. The room was nicely furnished and very clean. The balcony was furnished wish 2 chairs and a small table which was handy. Notice: There is no elevator (did not bother us), but could be a problem for certain... More

We stayed here overnight in November. The motel is not easy to find, but OK if you have google maps. At least it is not on a main road. The stairs to the units and restaurant are confusing as they go all over the place, but you will work it out. The carpark also has very small spaces, and the... More

Was told by the manager that because we booked on line we wouldnt be getting a room with a view. Pity the place is so overpriced when you are given a tiny room at the back with no view, parking for only a few cars for the whole motel, tiny televisions, and less than helpful staff.

Thank you for your comments and we are sorry that your expectations were not met. The booking you made online was for one of our three budget rooms. As indicated through the booking site and on our website our budget rooms do not have a balcony or view. All other rooms do. The televisions in all of our rooms are... More

Stayed at Ocean Front Motel this weekend (12th Dec). We love the rooms with the hot tub. So relaxing sitting in the hot tub with a wine looking out over the beach and ocean. The staff are friendly and will help with any request. You can stroll only the beach to the restaurants; have a swim or just relax on... More

A friend and I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of July, and the room was large with plenty of space and had a great view. It is only a couple of minutes drive (or a 15 - 20 minute walk) to the centre of the Entrance. Reception were helpful with maps of how to get to some... More

Stayed early December 2014. Had originally booked different dates, but had to change our plans at the last minute. The staff were very friendly & obliging & we were upgraded to a higher floor (room 16). The view was absolutely stunning, the decor was a bit dated but the room was massive & reasonably clean. Undercover parking is also available.
