“TIRED MOTEL - OVERPRICED FOR WHAT IT IS”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

This is an older style motel, and is overpriced for what is offerred.
The position is the only advantage it has over other motels in the area.
Most of the Tuncurry motels have been refurbished, this one has not.
Will be staying in the renovated establishments in the area and saving $50 per night in future.

This is an older style motel and a little worn around the edges but don't let that put you off. The rooms are very comfortable, bright and airy with plenty of space. Mine had a private balcony with pool and ocean views and a minimal but useful kitchenette. Reception staff were very helpful and friendly. For the area it represents particularly good value, and the neighbouring town of Forster is a 5 minute walk acrross the bridge. I have stayed here several times now and have never been disappointed.

Room Tip: Balcony room overlooking the pool is best

I don't think any money has been spent on this motel for a lot of years. I stayed here based upon the 5 star review - I can't see how this could be right - cleanliness was only OK and decor was very dated.As well the bed was sagging and very old. The managers seem to be more interested in the restarant that is on site rather than the motel rooms. As well as that this motel seems a lot more expensive than other motels in town (as I said i stayed here because of the previous good review on trip advisor and was prepared to pay extra based on the review)

I stayed 4 nights at this motel in Tuncurry and found it to be exactly what I had hoped for. It was extremely clean when I arrived, and was serviced daily. My room had a queen bed as well as a single bed so it would suit a small family group. There was a kitchenette with microwave, kettle, barfridge and toaster as wel as the basics to make tea and coffee.

The bathroom was spacious with hairdryer and bathroom basics such as shampoo, conditioner, shower cap supplied.

Austar was also included.

There is a restaurant on-site which I didn't get a chance to try but I did order breakfast to my room and it arrived on time, hot and plentiful.
