Stayed at this motel and impressed with the security and rooms. Refurbished but not over the top and very comfortable. About 500 metres to holdfast marina and a bit further to jetty road but easy walk and worth it for the serene location

Stay at this property whenever we can get a vacancy.....as they are very popular. The Winter special of $99 per couple with free full breakfast is great value. Very clean rooms and friendly staff. Manager Kylie is totally pro-active and welcoming.

We stayed here just for one night in one of the spa rooms. The staff were very friendly on arrival, the room was exceptionally clean and comfortable and quiet. One small criticism was the jets in the spa didn't seem very strong, apart from that we would highly recommend this motel for a stay.

We spent three days here, started by welcoming service from the front staff and share the local information at the surrounding area, good. The room was spacious, clean bathroom, free wifi, flat TV, comfy beds, quiet and decent sleeps, at affordable room rate. A bit too far but still OK at a walking distance to Glenelg Jetty and Adelaide Tram... More

We were offered a fantastic deal of room and full breakfast which was really reasonable. Neil, the manager was very helpful in offering suggestions about... More
