“Good for a stopover”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

Very clean and good service for a one night stop. Needs updating though to make it a 4 star hotel.

We recently stayed here for a weekend away. Our experience was great from the moment we arrived - friendly helpful owners, nothing was too much. The room was lovely and comfortable and clean, the beds were very comfortable and the location was just perfect. We will be back.

Having just stayed 2 nights at a similarly priced hotel in sydney, we were disappointed at the lack of cleanliness at this motel. The owners mentioned that they had been fully booked for some time, so perhaps some things get forgotten in the rush to have rooms ready.

Pros:
- park outside room
- king sized bed
- easy access to local shops


Cons:
- funny smell, I thought poo, wife thought wee
- bathroom was musty and poorly cleaned
- view from our downstairs room not so great
- spider webs in the corners
- other patrons hair on the couch cushions

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

The room I stayed in (#1) was spacious with a comfortable bed, LCD TV with Foxtel, air conditioning, fridge, toaster, tea/coffee, a table and wireless internet access. The owners are genuinely friendly people who go out of their way to provide assistance. The motel is located opposite the Eden Fishermen's Club and it is a short walk (~ 500 m) to the wharf. I would stay here again when visiting Eden.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper level would have a better view of the bay

This was such a surprise. It's a great place to stop at on the way to Melbourne. We stayed in a very clean and spacious queen/single room on the top level. The had a wonderful view of the ocean and the sea breeze was just lovely. I also liked that their mini bar items were reasonably priced considering other places charge much more for these items.

The motel is located just across the road from the fisherman's club which has lovely, well priced meals. It also a short walk from the killer whale museum.

The people working there were pleasant and welcoming. I would definitely stay here again.

Very pleasantly surprised at this motel. I was somewhat concerned when I arrived to see it was located in the main shopping area, concerned that noise from the hotels and clubs may be an issue but I was very wrong! The room was very spacious, quiet and so clean! I highly recommend this motel and wish I could have stayed longer.

This is a great place to stay it is just out of the Eden City Centre and opposite the Fisherman's Club a great place for meals.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the rear and upstairs to get a view of the ocean
