This place had obviously had its heyday in the 70's - very dated from the outside. We stayed in 2 bedroom family suite & were pleasantly surprised. Clean, updated bathroom, comfortable bed & block out curtains. It's most certainly 3 star, but fine for an overnight stay. Local tavern an easy stroll down the street. I would recommend to families... More

What a lovely little motel this is. The owners are English and love a good chat. The room was clean and tidy and decor as well. It had the usual niceties like tea and coffee, plus free wifi too. In fact, even the cleaning ladies stopped to have a chat with us, which was really nice. Close to the shops,... More

We chose to stay at the Fun'n'Sun motel because we always receive a warm welcome and know the rooms are clean. This stay was no different. Room absolutely spotless, bathroom is so clean. And the room is quiet. We have stayed at some of the higher priced motels in town, but have been disappointed by the state of cleanliness in... More

Staying at Fun n Sun over three nights in April and one night in May, was convenient and affordable. It's got parking at your doorstep and everything you need for a great night's sleep, with rooms cleaned daily. The management are also friendly, welcoming and helpful. A short walk leads to fabulous seafood outlets to buy dinner and another shopping... More

We have stayed in this hotel twice now and would highly recommend it. The budget price gives you a clean, quiet, decent sized room. There are solid brick walls between the rooms, so both times we have stayed have been very quiet. Although the price and accommodation could be considered budget, the service by the owners is 5 star.

Stated in route to noosa, perfect overnight stay. Pool was a great bonus for our girls when we arrived on a hot day. Everything was clean and tidy and what we needed for one night. Staff were friendly and helpful. Lost a stone from a ring and staff were great on helping to find and store it once found.

We were looking for a Motel for the night, we were towing a pop top van and didn't want to set it up for the night. This Motel was great for us, we were able to park our 4WD and van within view of our room and off the street. The room has a kitchenette and small dining area. The... More

We stayed at this Motel while travelling after Christmas with our 2 young children. Very reasonable rates, room and bed very basic but clean and comfortable. Bathroom quite small for a family room but plumbing works properly. However, air conditioning is for main room only, not bedroom, and outdoor table had ashtray full of cigarette butts. Much cheaper than nearby... More
