We stayed as a family of 4 adults and a 3 month old baby. Lovely surprise to find a spacious 2 bedroom family room, with a cot supplied for the baby. The room also has a small nook for coffee making and bathroom with bath. The motel looks to have been recently refurbished and the decor was simple but nicely... More

We last stayed in 2015 and were very disappointed by the attitude of this hotel, post check-out . We are happy to say that this time our overnight Bed & Breakfast was great. The rooms are large, well appointed and well maintained. We ordered Room Service and had an early night in the comfy bed. Breakfast was a leisurely affair... More

Very conveniently located to shopping centres, pleasant drive to foreshore. Good sized room and very comfy beds. Restaurant meal was excellent, breakfast variety good. Staff were fabulous!! Could use some bench space in bathroom for putting down items and no toilet lid - gross! (Maybe because of handicapped access??) Drinking glasses were not clean and we needed to wash them... More

Pretty good value for money, Foods great, rooms are clean and large and I had a great view over the adjoining bushland, very relaxing having a glass of wine on the balcony. Restaurant has good food, and not your normal hotel style food. Bed comfortable, and although the gym is a little small, its ok .

Great service from staff (especially reception staff who went out of their way to help), good amenities such as a gym and pool, location to John Hunter Hosp was just 10 minutes, food tasty and outlook from the bedrooms very leafy and peaceful even though the hotel is on a main road. I will no doubt, be back!
