We stayed in one of the family mezzanine rooms which were spacious and clean. The rooms cleaned each day. Mariners Cove is close to the shops and cafes/restaurants. The only negative we had was the heating - we had to leave the key tag in the holder all day to keep the room warm. Other than that we had a... More

The most Beautiful location. Lovely clean spacious rooms. Great friendly owners. Boat moorings right outside your room!! Fantastic balcony. Highly recommend. Our kids are 6+ so quite safe. Walking distance to everything. Only wish there was a bar/cafe on site

I booked on-line direct with the property as none of the booking sites were any cheaper. We paid $225 per night for a Saturday and Sunday night for a two bedroom apartment, which I did not see as any kind of bargain. The apartment was not serviced during our stay. The apartment was simple and pleasant rather than elegant or... More

I loved this place. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly. If Paynesville is the place for you, then this is definitely the best accommodation around. Being across the road from the Raymond Island ferry was a bonus too!

we were staying in a "family" room so it was disappointing that it wasn't very child friendly. there was a massive staircase leading to upstairs room (dangerous having a two year old) nor were there any doors separating upper room from lower room, whole space was "open living"- resulting in our newborn waking everyone up during the night as I...

My husband & I recently stayed for 2 nights having been quite a while since we visited Paynesville. The motel was very clean and in a lovely spot overlooking the water, fabulous if you're travelling with a boat as mooring is right outside. We enjoyed our stay but did find that the rooms aren't very soundproof, we heard every closing... More

Quick hassle free check-in with owner/manager. Mezzanine Waterfront Family Suite was ideal for me, my wife and son - 1 Queen on ground floor overlooking water and 1 Queen + single upstairs. Very short ferry ride over to Raymond Island to see the close-by Koalas in the wild and nice boardwalk along the water. Definitely would stay again if in... More

We were happy with our room and very pleased when the owners invited us to leave our car in the carpark so that we could take the ferry over to Raymond Island. We will stay here again if we are in Paynesville.
