We spent two nights here on a very rainy weekend and it was perfectly adequate. The motel is an old styled block brick wall type so it was cold when we entered, but they had air conditioning and that was soon sorted. There was plenty of room, three beds including one queen, a fridge, microwave and even tea towels, plates... More

Staff were very obliging and helpful. Central location if you have a car as business hub and food venues a short drive from motel. Quiet... More

I have now stayed here a few times all as part of business trips. It is so convenient when in Hervey Bay one day and heading north the next. The rooms are certainly bigger than the average and very comfortable. 5 minute drive to get food makes this such a convenient spot, to say nothing of how quiet the location... More

We stayed here for a weekend and the owners and staff were awesome. They could not go far enough out of their way to help. The rooms are comfortable and clean, the swimming area is very clean and refreshing all in all this place is amazing. Will come back again!

From the minute we arrived we felt welcome. Very conveniently placed to central Hervey Bay.

Family run motel with I think 10 rooms. When I stayed recently out of season it was very quiet and I relaxed in the pool and spa by myself. Close to shopping centres and eateries. Free DVD's available to use. Breakfast was excellent.
