What a great find this place was! The cheap nightly rate and the dates red brick front of the building are nothing to take notice of. The rooms are modern, spacious, clean and amazing value. Good size table and work area, comfy bed and a great shower. Location is great located in the CBD and close to some great places...

The room I stayed in was nicely renovated. Until I looked closer. The toilet seat was not correctly secured to the toilet. The towel rack fell off the wall when I hung my towel on it. The bottom of the closet was dirty, it has someones hair in it. Not one or two hairs, but it looked like the shake...

Had a great stay while my mother was in hospital. Only 2 blocks to visit her and I could leave my car there without paying for the deadly parking. Very clean, spacious, and comfortable. Quiet even though you are city central. Close to food options.

I paid a very fair price for what I got. The room was very clean, recently renovated and comfy!!!! The motel is close (walking distance) to the beach, shops, restaurants etc. I recommend, would definitely stay there again!

I booked and paid for a room at this motel for when my mother was booked into a nearby hospital for surgery. The surgery was cancelled at the last minute and I called as soon as I could to ask them if I could cancel or postpone and I would use the room when the surgery was rescheduled. I was...

Our cancellation policy is 72 hours. We were fully booked that night, your room was held if you had chosen to take it. You were told you had to go back through the site you had booked on to cancel but still no refund would have been given because of policies in place. We did not receive an email from...

I didn't actually stay, but I rang on Saturday 22 October to see if they had vacancies, the lady that answered was abruptly hung up the first time I rang, didn't speak the second time, & on the third time she was rude abrupt and arrogant. Definitely not going stay there EVER!

I am not sure how you can post a review when you didn't stay at our property. We had a room available but you didn't want to pay the rate, and there are no motels in Leopold. We are in the centre of the city, 10 minute drive to Leopold. It is not my job to research and find other...

We made our booking through wotif, had no conformation from motel, card was charged before we even checked in! So much for being able to pay in cash! Was told my debit card was no good to hold against the room as bond (but was good enough to charge for the room!) and HAD to be a credit card or...

Motel in good location. Short walk to Westfield & not far from beach. BUT all this was spoilt when I was charged $5 because I didn't have a bankcard for surety. Debit card not accepted- beware of hidden charge not advertised!

We had an enjoyable overnight stay here. The location was fantastic, a short walk to the waterfront or to Westfield. The room was spacious and well appointed. Nice quality linen and a comfortable bed. For a motel that has 18 rooms and was fully booked the night we were here it was surprisingly quiet. My only criticism would be there...

Newly refurbished rooms are lovely, more of a hotel than a motel. Extremely close to CBD. Very clean, couldn't fault a thing. We checked in late and Pam was very accommodating and friendly. Will definitely be coming back. Thanks again
