Have spent a few here. The rooms are plain and ok condition. Bed was very comfy and also Austar channels, which were a bit of a pain to work out. Basic facilities at a good price. Staff always friendly and helpful.

Self contained rooms with microwave, fridge and kettle for our convenience. Beds are pretty comfortable, and shower isn't too bad compared to other places I've stayed. Only 1 tv in kitchen area and not in main room. Right across the rd from the floating dragon and waling distance from everything. Friendly staff.

Well located budget motel just a few doors down from Nicks and walking distance to the shops. It is clean and well looked after, the owner was friendly and accommodating. Really for the price it doesn't get better than this for a budget motel.

A good, clean motel that is well priced and central. The beds are large and comfortable. Have stayed here twice on seperate road trips and will most likely stay here again next time I'm passing through

Good value no frills motel. Convenient location for cruises and restaurants. Helpful host. Room we stayed in had unusual configuration with sink in bedroom but others may be different. Has basic kitchenette including a microwave but no wine glasses. Overall great location and excellent value for money.

Great original style motel, large clean room, good value and perfect location, right on the waterfront. I left a bag there by accident and John very helpfully forwarded it on to where we were staying in Bondi.

Lovely and friendly service. They gave us fresh milk and set up the cot for my daughter. Only an extra $12 for the night. Very accommodating. The car spaces are really really tight so be careful when parking. It is walking distance to the shops and everything you need. Would definitely stay there again!

I'm a big fan of the older style country motel and the Bamboo is right up my alley. I stayed here for a work project and it had everything I needed for my stay. Bed was comfortable, room was clean, and best of all the price was right! It's easy to spend twice as much for somewhere supposedly fancier but... More
