“3 star but good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Older style motel, very clean rooms, staff very friendly, not too keen on budgies - bit noisy. Lovely grounds, too much shade in pool area, but that would be good for summer. All in all good clean, quiet handy place to stay

Room Tip: Rooms near office- further away from the budgies.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

The managers were helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and the bed very comfortable. Only towels provided, no face washers. Would have liked a handbasin in the bathroom, instead of having to wash hands, clean teeth and dishes in the kitchen sink. Grounds were beautifully kept and the gazebo/BBQ area an ideal place for breakfast or other meals - had a lovely cool breeze for summer. Would be cool in winter months and a sun area would be ideal. The budgies may be noisy if you are that end of the motel, but we did not hear them even with the window open. The laundry had a washing machine and basin, but the room is used as a storage area for the budgie products and we would have liked a separate laundry area for guests. There is a clothes line. We did not use the swimming pool (as we are non swimmers) but it looked clean. There is a service station next door which has some grocery products, which we found handy. We will definately stay there again.

Room Tip: Having read a comment by a previous contributor, units nearer reception may be quieter of budgie noi...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2011

Pros... If your looking for all the mod cons this isn't for you but it is very clean, has comfy beds and a hot shower. Close to shops and all of the sunny coast. Perfect for traveling out each day & using it as a base. Everything is just a short drive away. Service was impeccable, very helpful.
Cons... the budgies! Way too close to the rooms., they wake you up early every day. Having to share a laundry with all the budgie mess and contraptions, not pleasant.
No where to sit comfortably to catch the winter sun. Chairs outside room are uncomfortable and there's very little room anyway. Pool & BBQ area would be great in summer with all the shade but not during winter.
Get rid of the budgies and put a guest area for sunning, reading, relaxing, etc. Would be perfect.
