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

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

The pool and spa was also very inviting to, just a shame I didn't have time to use it. definitely... More

Great little motel with basic facilities but everything was clean & maintained well. Showers are good quality & beds comfortable. Parking wasn't a hassle even during a peak period & no issues with noise from the surrounds. Über friendly & helpful managers. Would recommend this place as a nice cheap alternative to the super expensive beachside hotels. It can be... More
