Hi- horrible. And being asked for more money for this and that. The cleaning is every three days. For a family is unacceptable. I go on holiday not to clean after family. The Tv leaves alot to be desired. Its true what i read before. It is a tired motel being pumped out.

My wife and I stayed one night and booked the room and meal package. We were both very happy with the friendly greeting on arrival, explanation about how the meal deal worked and more importantly the cleanliness of the room. The room has all the facilities that you would expect of a motel. The bed and pillows were both very... More

Great hotel, very clean however TERRIBLE service. Unfortunately after misplacing our key we were threatened to be kicked out by asking to be let in. This is a completely unacceptable by any hotel to one be treated like children. Very upset and never coming back.

We do not offer to be a 24 hour reception. You called us at 3am in the morning after your group had had a disagreement before returning to the motel. Unfortunately the lady who booked the room didn't return with you and apparently had the key which was not our problem. However we did get dressed and come and open... More

This motel is extremely basic, the prices charged are way about value. Stay for a few days, didnt have house keeping whole time, and you need to empty bins and actually wash up and clean up before you leave. No decent appliances- old. TV didnt have anymore than two channels. It is a run down place, and its still being... More

We're sorry you felt this way Eliza, but open check in all guests are given a registration form and the option of nominating room service. Regarding your TV stations we have several Foxtel stations and over 70 free to air stations. Our rooms have recently been refurbished to a high standard as is reflected by numerous positive reviews.

Very affordable comfortable room which is very convenient to the bowling club and hospital. The owners are very friendly and helpful and judging by the cleanliness of their rooms care about the motel.. We would definitely stay here again on our way through.

I booked this room for my partner and I as I had to attend uni. The price was very reasonable and the room was quite comfortable, my partner very much enjoyed the reclining chairs! To be honest I did not expect much from the accommodation but was presently surprised. My flight was delayed due to a storm and reception called... More

We stayed one night as we were passing through and needed a motel with 2 rooms for 2 couples. The rooms were clean but simple and priced well. The location is great as we walked across the road to the Tweed bowling club which had great food and atmosphere. We would stay here again as it was all we needed... More

Stayed here for one night on my way up the coast. After a long drive I was made feel very welcome by the motel owners. The room was good quality, clean, very quiet and was very good value for money. The pool and spa was also very inviting to, just a shame I didn't have time to use it. definitely... More
