This motel is situated on the Gold Coast Highway and very close to both the beach and a wide variety of cafes and restaurants. The room was basic but comfortable with the added advantage of a small kitchenette. The motel is only small (an advantage) and the owners the most welcoming and helpful I have had the pleasure to meet... More

The motel was a mix between a motel and an apartment facility. We had a kitchen in the room but almost no service - we needed to go to the reception go get clean towels. Other than that the place was nice and the woman at the reception was very friendly and helpful. One problem with the place is parking... More

We stayed for a week and were completely satisfied with horizons. The room was spotless and well equipped. The bed was comfortable and although the motel is on the main road, there was little road noise. With some great places to eat, and local shops to meet basic needs within easy walking distance, it all added to the experience. The... More

We booked this hotel relatively last minute on a busy holiday weekend, and were very happy with our stay. the room was basic, but clean, and nicely appointed, and the hotel is walkable to the beach and to restaurants.

The motel itself is just off the Gold Coast highway and roughly five minutes drive to Jupiters casino!!! Once inside the drive way you'll find adequate parking and accommodating smokers areas away from rooms. We were nestled at the back of the complex in room 5. The room was stuffy upon entrance but it cooled down quickly without hassle. The... More

We stayed here for 1 night and the accommodation was exceptional for the money ($95 for two adults, 1 child). The room was clean and fresh with a modern feel. The design of the bed heads was very clever and had a clean hygienic feel (large travertine marble tiles). Close to amenities and not noisy even though it is close... More

This motel is very clean and comfortable. Nice large rooms. Off-street parking. The plastic shower curtain (with a couple of hooks missing) is a negative. Its very best assest is the extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating staff. Value for money

The middle of the School holiday's (October 2012) is not a great time to find yourself driving up and down the highway looking for a place to stay the night, but we stumbled over this place and knew we had found a gem. For turning up at the last minute we found ourselves in a great room. A one bedroom... More
