Excellent location on the water, 5min walk out from the middle of Bateman's bay. The room includes a huge digital widescreen tv, and very good heating. It is right next door to the best Thai restaurant (which gives a 10% discount when you show the key), as well as a fish'n'chips/cafe. Helpful owners live onsite. It is only a 10min drive to Mogo, an arty hamlet with an awesome primate zoo (chimpanzees, gibbons, monkeys, lemurs - with inquisitive wild eels in their moat, tamarins, pygmy marmosets, plus meerkats, iguanas, servals..). Towels changed every day.

Could be better if the rooms were cheaper, internet were free, and the bathroom sinks were more generously proportioned, but hey. The interior isn't stylish, but it's comfortable, clean, quiet, and no problems with the bed particularly!

Our deluxe twin room was huge, with seating on the balcony and a partial view of the water, and had all amenities including a microwave, fridge and large TV. Shower size excellent.
Soldiers' Club with good club facilities and meals is only a 4 minute walk away and another 2 minutes will get you into the main street and shopping area where there are other restaurants.

Very comfortable stay and the managers were delightful. Our room had just about everything, all the comforts away from home. Very affordable and location was great.
Every room had a view towards the water. Very clean and well set up. Thanks for a lovely stay-would highly recommend this Motel.

Decor is pretty ordinary but the location is good being directly opposite the water and a 5 minute walk to the shops. Rooms are comfortable and clean with partial view of the water.

We chose this motel from the reviews written on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. Room was clean, tidy and comfortable, the bathroom modern and a view out over the water. Management were friendly and helpful, only a short drive (walkable) to the Soldiers Club and shops. There is a good Thai restaurant next door, yep we would stay again.
