We went back to the Melaleuca because we loved it the first time. We were not disappointed on our return. Lovely room (the same one we had before! just as I wanted) The room was big, clean and the motel is so close to town, so we could go to dinner in town and leave the car behind.

The motel is well located close to the town centre. We stayed for 3 nights. The room was spacious and clean, and the bed was comfortable. Good access for parking. Designated smoking areas within the grounds. Not 'flash' but very comfortable and would stay again and recommend to friends.

Thank you for your review, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our motel. Our rooms are extra large and we have new Queen beds. Our rooms are all on the ground floor which makes parking out the front of your room convenient and secure. Hope to see you again.

Hi Sheila, thank you for your compliments to our motel. We are in an excellent location, as you say, so close to everything, but also so quiet. We have done quite a few refurbishments, beds, linen and bedding, curtains etc. and are still working on doing more over time. Hope to see you again.

Thank you for your lovely comments. It was nice to hear that you enjoyed our motel. Our rooms are very large which makes it so much easier to spread out and relax. Glad you enjoyed watching the boats and seals and stingrays. They are always worth viewing.
