Small boutique hotel, only three floors, most rooms offer water views. Small balconies in some rooms, which are lovely to sip a wine and watch over the strand, and across to Magnetic Island. Walking distance to many great eating spots, and into town if you are up for a slightly longer walk. We got around ok without a car. Parking... More

Reading other peoples reviews, I'm somewhat puzzled as what we experienced was not pleasant. The pro's - location and the brief encounter with front desk was pleasant enough. The not so greats, our room was not clean, specifically the bathroom - mouldy, dirt splatters down the side of the tub not to mention the state of the walls/ceiling. The security... More

Stayed here recently with friends for four nights. Was on level 3 towards the back and had sea views - beautiful. Room good size and very clean. Rooms on level 2 had showers much easier to access. Very comfy bed. Staff lovely and helpful. Quite reasonably priced. Lots of nice cafes and shops nearby. Beautiful Strand on the doorstep.

Directly across from waterfront is convenient for people who like early morning walks. Room was clean, bed comfortable and everything worked fine. Balcony was satisfactory for 2 people. Microwave and small hotplate were good features for an extended stay. Undercover parking fine. Plenty of eating places within 5 minutes walk, and a Coles supermarket just 2 blocks away.

We stayed here for a few days. This motel has three levels and a basement for parking. Right on the Strand and close to everything. A nice walk into the CBD takes about 10 mins. The manager and staff are all very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The room has everything needed and views of the water. An... More

Great location with off street parking. Sue and Eddie were very approachable and able to deal with our requests easily and without fuss. We booked initially for 3 nights and ended up staying for 10 nights in 2 different rooms and found them to be both clean and comfortable. The views to magnetic island were great. Rooms were cleaned daily... More
