We've had wonderful stays at the Melaleuca over the past few years and our latest was no exception. We stayed for 3 nights over Christmas 2015 with our 2 children in a family room. The kids had plenty of room inside to play and dance, and the grass on the other side of the car park was a godsend when... More

The motel is centrally located in very small town. Staffs are very friendly. The rooms are extremely large and clean. The Wi-Fi and car park are free. We called to reception to advise that we are going to arrive after midnight and they organised key and code for Wi-Fi for us after hours. I had very pleasant sleep and will... More

Well situated not far from sea and restaurants. Helpful staff, clean and spacious room. Only adverse comment was that tops of bedside cabinets caused anything placed on them to be sticky, although the tops appeared clean. We would stay again

We didn't book in advance but were still offered a great deal including free wifi and a free breakfast: - simply outstanding value for money. Our room was an... More

We stayed for one night in a family room. Accommodation was basic but clean. The bathroom could do with an update, but it had everything we needed. A big plus - the beds were very comfortable. Helpful info provided on where to eat - useful for a weary traveller.

Pleasure to have a table to sit down at to eat tea. Room very nice. Heater quickly warmed the room. Late check in available. The builders behind motel very considerate. No noise until after 8am and even then could only just hear them.
