We found this little gem of beauty purely by accident and what a wonderful accident it was! Amanda, front office staff, was so friendly and helpful. Our room was breathtakingly beautiful opening straight onto the beachfront. We left our sliding door open at night so we could hear the waves crashing! To watch the moon rise, followed by the sun...

We stayed in a ground floor hot tub room and were a little disappointed with our stay Unfortunately the hot tub is definitely not worth the extra money they charge for the room. Very old. Most jets don't even work. Really need updating to qualify charging the premium they charge for this room. Bed & bathroom ok. Everything else ok... More

We stayed here on the Stay 3 nights, pay for 2 nights deal. Reception was helpful and provided a list of things to do upon arrival for the weekend which was very very very useful. The location of the property is 1km away from main street shops/ restaurants at The Entrance, 850m from The Greens Bowling Club (very walk-able) which... More

If you dont mind a sagging mattress that you can feel the springs through.... The view was indeed lovely, but not being able to have a good nights sleep because of an OUTDATED and very cheap mattress made our stay not a pleasant one. The bathrooms are very small and no bath, also the linen in the bed is of... More

With Views of the Ocean and the Coastline running back to the Entrance..This is a great stay at a Fair Price... Large Rooms and large balcony with floor to ceiling glass afford Spectacular views from your bed even..All brick walls, Quiet Rooms, and a sense of Privacy...Lovely Beds and Pillows....Look for a "Stay 3 night, pay for 2 deal "...

We stayed here over Christmas as my in-laws live close by. We primarily used this as an escape after long days with the family. That being said we found the room very comfortable (beds very good) with an excellent view. We also enjoyed the air conditioner as it got hot over the week. We would definitely stay here again. We...

Best location of any motels at The Entrance - as the name suggest, a direct ocean frontage and just off the main drag which is good as The Entrance shopping/restaurant precinct itself is a little sad. You're just around the corner from where the Tuggerah Lake feeds into the ocean (good fishing, despite all the pelicans), and a few minutes... More

We absolutely loved ocean view. Our room on the top level with hot tub had breathtaking views. Staff were friendly and unobtrusive. Would definitely go back, can't wait. Beach is on the doorstep, near the saltwater baths and it's just a short walk to the other side where all restaurants are. Amazing! Highly recommended. Kath and Andrew......

We stayed in a room on the top floor with a hot tub, so the view was amazing. The bed was comfortable and the rooms were okay. There was a smell every time we came back that smelt like a wet dog, lucky enough the weather was nice so opening the balcony door wasn't an issue. There really needs to... More
