We chose this motel because it was a great price and handy to the airport and car storage. We spoke to Karen over the phone and she was lovely and very helpful. When we arrived, Karen had already put the heating on and milk in the fridge. A new bed had arrived that day and it was very comfortable. The... More

Guest/s: 3 Night/s: 2 Room: 107 Booked the first two nights via wotif, extended to a third night at reception. Check in/out: Really friendly service with check in. We were arriving late (reception open until 9pm), Karen provided us with details on how to access the key. Nice and easy. Was able to extend the stay to a third night... More

What a great place to stay. The bed was awesome, best sleep I have had in months and Karen is fantastic. She drove us to the local and had the air con on when we got back so the room was warm. It's my new best place to stay. If you are in the area, Don't hesitate, go there.

I picked this motel because it's close to Gold Coast Airport and very affordable. I had no idea it would be managed by one of the friendliest people I've ever met. Very quaint and quiet. Nice, clean, comfortable room. "Personalized" breakfast. Now I want to go back for fun rather than work! Thanks!

Central but quiet location. The most comfortable beds and pillows make for a really good sleep. The owners offer the friendliest welcome and help. Spotless rooms, good free wifi - everything I needed for a comfortable stay and more.

Karen, the owner of the Motel, delayed going out for her special sunday lunch to come and pick me up from the airport as soon as I rang, this had not been pre-arranged and did so out of her kindness. This was so very much appreciated as I was injured and to be able to go not only straight to... More

Our family of six stayed for a night and found it so clean and comfortable. With plenty of space for our four kids in one room, queen bed, table and chairs to fit us all and kitchenette to accommodate us in the other room. Big enough bathroom and just a nice feel to the place. Look forward to staying again.

Good location near airport but quite due to curfew at night. Very clean room with everything you need for the price. A little gem easy to get to. Friendly staff. Will definitely stay again. Close enough to Surfers paradise.

We had the pleasure of spending 4 nights at this wonderful motel. Karen went out of her way in all things, even to the point of driving us to the club so we didn't have to wait for the courtesy bus! The rooms were very clean, well appointed and very modern, more so than some of the resorts we have... More

Long drive up the Pacific Highway from Taree, to this little oasis. Whilst you are nearly on the Gold Coast, this motel suited our needs on our overnight stop going through to Noosa. Rooms are modern, well appointed, with great shower and very comfortable bed. Customer service was excellent, and extremely reasonably priced. Only a quick drive into Tweed Heads/Coolangatta...
