Located centrally on the main street these rooms are great value providing all the facilities for a comfortable stay. Not sure how they got negative ratings, rooms were clean, well set up for my small family, and had all the necessities of coffee, tea, milk etc. bathroom amenities, free water bottles, wifi and TV. My room had a view overlooking...

Three things made this an unpleasant stay. Take the bed covers off both beds and there were lots of these little insects in both beds. Killed as many as we could see but were still bitten during the night. It needs to be fumigated. Secondly the TV didn't work at all. Lastly, it rained and the building's guttering on the...

Having stayed overnight on a driving trip to Tasmania, I found the staff to be more than helpful - possibly the best service I've encountered on this trip. The rooms are small but very clean and tidy, the bed was comfortable and parking was easy and free. Overall an excellent experience, I would - and will stay again👍

Great budget place. The staff were amazingly friendly! Good access to resteraunt downstairs, good priced meals. Located on the main strip so close to everything. We left stuff in the room and they promptly called us to return to collect. Clean and presentable, great heating.

No air con, tv does not work. Old dingy rooms. Smallest room I have ever seen. Rooms right over restaurant/ bar .. Not really family orientated. No hot water. Staff very unhelpful. Room did seem fairly clean and the location was great. Do yourself a favour and just keep driving unless you are desperate.

A quick stop over for some dinner on our way back to Melbourne. Iluka offers casual restaurant dining and motel accommodation. They also cater for large tour groups. When we arrived, the dining room was completely packed and there was a queue for the pizza takeaway. We have pre-ordered so our food arrived quite quickly. I orderd a lamb souvaki...

They were able to check as to whether their fresh made Gluten free pizza bases were also egg free. The Gluten Free Hawaiian pizza (with no Cheese) had plenty of pineapple and was delicious. We also ordered Fish & Chips which were also delicious.

Please avoid, rooms are broken with dodgy repairs. I could list the unacceptable defects but there are to many. Dont be fooled.. The positive reviews are related to the restaurant. Restaurant staff were load and smoking which we could smell. To after 12. Then 3 garbage trucks woke us at 5.30am. Left feeling ripped off. To save others from this...

We often drive down here for a coffee and an afternoon walk in the sea breeze on a hot day. It is busy between 11:30 and 2 with tour busses. If you avoid these time a good place with lovely friendly staff who are eager to serve real coffee made by a genuine Italian.

Very busy and the place that the cheap tour busses all seem to stop at. Cheap is the word but you do get a decent feed for the price in a town that likes to be very expensive. But be prepared for the crowds - maybe this also says it all.
