My husband and I were fortunate to experience a night at this wonderful motel. This is by far the cleanest motel we have ever stayed in with very spacious rooms including a large bathroom. The owners have only recently taken over and were extremely friendly, wanting to make sure that we had everything we required. Would highly recommend this motel,... More

This motel is on the highway, across the road from the waterfront area. The motel is spotless, the rooms are large and impeccably clean. The grounds are also very clean and well maintained, and the owners very helpful with any requests.

My husband and I stopped here on our way back from Melbourne. We were greeted at reception like family, nothing to much trouble, we had a king room, the room puts most hotels to shame for size and cleanliness, we even had a lovely comfy leather lounge to watch tv (choice of 2). No road or any other noise. As... More

Lovely room, so spacious, that's what strikes you when you open the door. Quiet,clean and all the amenities you could ask for. A short walk to everything. This was a quiet time of the year and things might be different in the frenetic summer but if you are passing through, can't go wrong staying here.

Such a lovely place to stay. The host Heather was very friendly and a pleasure to deal with. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable and very quiet at night. The grounds are very well maintained and nothing is a bother. Would highly recommend.

Our large room looked tired and the furniture was dated. The brown leather lounge chairs were comfortable and placed in front of the flat screen TVs. The bathroom was tiny with no bench space at all. Poor lighting didn't help the situation. Perhaps some of the wasted space in the room could be used to enlarge the bathroom?
