“Best in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

After a nightmare stay with another motel operator along the 'Oceanside' check my other reviews for that, it was a pleasure to be back here again after my last stay a few years before. We can't thank the team (Russ and his wife) enough for taking our last minute "save us!" booking and the next time I'm in town I wont be staying anywhere else!

The location is great, just back from the beach, short walk to the shops, bars and restaurants in town and nice and central to The Lost Springs if you fancy a dip. The units are Modern, clean and tidy, they have everything you could ask for. TV large lounge with Sky, DVD player and a small stereo, there is a second TV in the main bedroom. Bathroom is awesome great pressure in the shower which is over the bath and the bath has a spa function. Beds are very comfortable, a big bed in the bedroom and one in the lounge meaning it can fit up to 3 people if needed.

You can tell the team here do their job well and take pride in their business, warm and friendly staff and a tidy cosy room, why would you stay anywhere else!

Great location - opposite the beach, short walk to shops and a minute from The Lost Springs. So cosy and comfortable with everything you need...you kinda just wanna stay in and enjoy! Reception staff were very accommodating.

Modern, extremely tidy and clean, designer apartment style unit with all amenities. TV in a large lounge with DVD and small stereo, great 3 seater couch in the lounge to relax on. Deck with table faced the ocean.

The bedroom had very comfortable beds, crisp white sheets and second TV.

Great bathroom with shower/bath - fantastic water pressure, and fluffy white towels,

We didn't cook but the kitchen was well appointed and there were plenty of wine glasses (which we may have used several of...).

Easy parking, stones throw to the beach, combine all of the above with the amazing Hosts (Russ and his wife) - it was a pleasurable stay.

Room Tip: We chose an upstairs room with an ocean view, very relaxing vista.

Dear Darren - Thank you for writing us a review. Russ and Gill are great hosts. Yes I am sorry we do not have in-room phones as just about everyone these days has a mobile, but we do offer use of the reception phone for free.

We decided to have a quiet weekend away and liked the look of this place due to The Lost Springs being through the gate at back of property. Turned out to be a great choice. We were offered an upgrade and found the view lovely and the unit was well equipped. Clean and quiet and really comfortable with bonus of bars and restaurants all being in walking distance. Nice extras are the plunger coffee and the bathroom goodies. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Upstairs units were our preference as a little more private.

We only stayed one night at the Beachside Resort but found the accommodations in first-rate shape, comfortable, quiet and spacious. The manager (owner?) Jill clearly takes great pride and pleasure in meeting guests and providing a friendly welcome. We look forward to coming back in the summer!

Very friendly and helpful staff. We stayed in a spacious one bedroom apartment which was very clean and comfortable. The location was great, across the road from the beach and within walking distance of town. Would stay here again and will definitely recommend it to others.
