Comfortable room & facilities just a short stroll into town. Right on the water so great views from the restaurant and bar. Nice to have a balcony to sit on. Helpful staff and good room for the price.

We stayed at this hotel recently for one night and were shocked to find that a "4 star hotel" does not have a lift. Their website states they are 4 stars but i would say 3 stars at best. Compared to other motels we stayed at on our recent road trip this was the worst by far. Rooms are outdated... More

We stayed here for two nights and also held a professional development seminar in the function rooms. Hotel was fine, if a bit grubby but our experience in the function area of the hotel was disgraceful. Food was average and insufficient in quantity despite our having paid for more than we received. All our requests for help and more food... More

The location is great...close to town and really nice views over the river. BUT..if you like fresh air in your room you need to ask for an upstairs room. Our room literally opened out onto the road....so no security. Off street parking is limited so if they are full and you get there late then you park in the street.... More

Our experience started badly when there were no luggage trolleys. no lift, no unloading bay, limited off street parking with very narrow bays making it difficult to unload. The receptionist was by no means welcoming. We were allocated room 201 which was next to the Guest Laundry on the first floor. Having travelled from the Gold Coast area that day... More

I came through and stayed there for one night at short notice. The price was good and the room, as usual, was fantastic. Staff are really friendly and helpful as always. Despite being full (or close to it) the hotel was still quiet. This is good when you have just driven 800 kms and have about 700 kms to do... More

Good hotel/motel with excellent location looking over the water. Close to town and eateries. Comfortable room without being flash. A few chips off the furniture. Great view overlooking water from the balcony. All room 'bits' worked. Friendly reception staff. Good value for money.

I booked and prepaid for a standard room for three nights with my daughter to attend a family wedding. Firstly on the two occasions that I dealt with the reception staff - they made no eye contact, were unsmiling, unwelcoming and terse. Secondly, I was given probably the worst room in the motel. Do not accept room 232. It is... More
