“Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

We had a great stay - 4 days and 3 nights.
Room was clean and comfortable and the hosts were very friendly and informative.
Our 4 legged family member also received a treat on arrival!
The grounds were great and we enjoyed the barbecue facilities on 2 of our three night stay.
We will certainly come back.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Gael and her husband greeted us like friends from the moment we arrived. They have really upgraded and refurbished this quiet oasis adjacent to the bay. Loved the location with rainbow lorikeets and honey eaters all over the nice gardens. Enjoyed the pool and BBQ area. Nice town as well. Loved seeing the wild river dolphins.

Room Tip: The room we had was recently refurbished and really nice (#8)

I'm a single mum of 2 kids. We stayed at the Tin Can Bay Motel. The hospitality was above and beyond. Jeff and Gael made sure that we had everything we needed and nothing was too much bother. Clean and comfortable room. Plenty of room for the kids to run around. We were given ideas for places to visit and fishing. Great quiet location away from the rat race. We have already booked our next stay. If there was a higher star rating these guys deserve it.

This place is awesome. My husband and I came up for a 2 night stay over Easter and it was great. The rooms were clean, the gardens were nice and the pool was very refreshing! The best thing was it's a pet friendly motel so we were allowed to bring our 2 little dogs!! Gael was very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. She was very informative on things to do and places to check out for dinner. We are going to come back and stay here next time we are in Tin Can Bay!!

Could not have asked for better hosts,We came in as a group of 10 with 6 children we stayed for 2 nights Gael and Geoff made sure we had everything we needed and went above and beyond. i Could not recommend Tin can bay motel more highly, every thing was clean and tidy and the kids had a ball. Next time we stay i know for a fact we will be booking at the tin can bay motel. Thank you so much.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 2 beautiful for families of up to 6 people couldn't have asked for better and close...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We stayed for 2 nights. Never ever stayed at a Motel before so I was abit apprehensive. Must say I was pleasantly surprised. The room we got was very clean and quite roomy. We too also got a nice TV. The new owners are very lovely and down to earth. I agree wit other reviewers that if you want some peace and quiet try to get the end rooms. We stayed in room 10 and were away from those that wanted to let their hair down.
