We stayed for one night only in a double room which was exceedingly small for two people. The upholstered chairs were so badly stained that one was reluctant to use. Other furnishings were in extremely poor state of repair including missing door and draw handles as we as holes on the inside of the front door. Did not appear to... More

Lovely owner. Great location by the sea. We had balcony overlooking the sea. Plenty free parking. Clean. Comfy beds. Fridge, toaster, microwave and kettle which was very useful. Spacious room. TV with lots of channels. Decor a little dated but great value for money. Air con was adequate.

....the price is right for a one night stay...however, dont expect a good nights sleep. The security lights outside windows do not get turned off until very early hours of morning, and curtains do not block out light. Front and back door access so great for catching cross seas breezes. Cars can be parked right outside front or back doors.... More

This is an older style Motel in a great location right opposite the beach. Even though it is on the Esplanade the location is quiet. The onsite managers are extremely pleasant & welcoming. The rooms are dated but provide Clean Good Quality Linen and complementary toiletries. The bed was comfortable. Our room provided Clean Crockery & Cutlery, a Fridge, Kettle,... More

We would not have stayed here except it was close to a function and we could walk to and from the event. The Waltzing Matilda Motel is basic and old but is clean and in the end that is the most important thing. I was a little intrigued though as I could not find a smoke alarm in the room... More

We have stayed here three times now. It's in a great location. We always get a room on the ground floor looking over the ocean. Great to sit outside having a coffee. The facilities are old but clean. AC is a bit noisy but did the job. Bed very comfortable. Will stay again.

Cheap motel (which wasn't actually that cheap). This motel is in a beautiful spot but desperately needs an upgrade. Comfortable enough for one night but the air conditioner was terrible and the furniture was old and tired. Unable to access the Wi-Fi even outside. Friendly welcome after we managed to find the proprietor but not a great motel.
