The view from our Beach Level room might not have been as spectacular as the rooms above but it still has fantastic ocean views. Our room was spacious with a good size outdoor area. The bed wasn't the most comfortable we've slept on but its OK. Only a few minutes drive into the main street to shops and restaurants or... More

Thank you for your comments. Our apologies for the confusion around payment on your arrival. It was our mistake and we are sorry. The motel has 25 car spaces and 31 rooms. Currently we do not allocate our car spaces; we will be looking at this next year. We are very glad you enjoyed the room and in particular the... More

We drove around the esplanade looking for accommodation after a day of driving from Thredbo. It was Saturday evening and the first three places we tried were fully booked. When we got to this motel perched right on the cliff overlooking the Entrance they had one room left on the ground floor with no views with a second floor unit... More

The views are superb from the balconies, if you want a better stay,... More

Rooms are basic and in need of fresh bright accessories. Air conditioner had an unpleasant smell. Okay for the price and I'm sure the view of the ocean was very good from the floors above, but sadly we were on the ground floor and although we could see the ocean it was obstructed by fences and park benches. Best thing... More

Three day stay chosen for the view over the ocean which was great. It was mid winter so not a lot of people around. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was clean but the bed was a little uncomfortable. Bathroom was smallish and the fittings were in need of a revamp. Hot water was brown.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We acknowlege the older rooms whilst kept very clean do look tired and are priced accordingly. We plan to fully refurbish these in 2017 and 2018. Our 10 spa rooms, which are very popular, were fully refurbished last year. The view you admired is enjoyed by all but three rooms - rooms on... More

Had a two night stay here and found that the views from our room were amazing. The Motel is an older style one, quite comfortable but starting to show its age. Basic breakfast available on weekends but not on week days, so we had to go elsewhere for breakfast on our second morning. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. My... More

We stayed in room 24 (top floor with spa). The room is all you need, comfy bed & neat bathroom. Clean. Absolutely stunning views, falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean and waking up with the sun. The arcade/restaurants etc is only a 15 minute walk up the beach. Reception & cleaning staff were very friendly and accommodating. 10/10... More
