Reviewed January 6, 2014

When you book a motel you probably just want a cheap room for a night. This is a lot more than that. Budget price yes, but comfy bed & great nights sleep, enormous bathroom, spotlessly clean, 5 min walk to city centre. Car parking outside your door ( no fee as in surfers, if in fact there is any available ). You deal directly with the owners, Who in this case was waiting with a fresh carton of milk when we arrived late. It is true that there are no sweeping views from the rooms, because motel design in general seems to be more about functionality.
I have not stayed in a lot of motel type acomodation in the past, but i will be checking out a lot more in the future.

Walking distance from rail station
Stayed over a long weekend, my company got the booking wrong, management changed it with no fuss
Very friendly and helpful staff
Motel type room , cars parked outside*. With double and sofa bed. TV, fridge, wall long desk , wardrobe ( * sleep disruption depends on near neighbours )
Shower room and loo
Space to sit outside in car parking area
Guest laundry, usual 3 dollars per machine
Breakfast available to order, good quality. A little unnerved by hatch servery, like images of prison!
Also arrangements with local eateries for room service and reductions in price
Plenty of local fast food places either side of the busy highway outside, which cannot be heard from inside motel room.

Stayed November 2013, traveled on business

This is hotel quality. Great shower and huge bathroom. Stocked bar fridge and yummy munchies. Comfy bed and room. I got excited by the little breakfast door which I used and had a fresh breakfast. Central spot. It looks like a simple motel but you will be surprised how lovely the staff, service and quality exceeds!

a decent enough place to stay, spotlessly clean and fairly well placed but oh so functional. seemed to belonged to a different era. room was pretty cramped but the bathroom was huge. absolutely no view of anywhere except walls and other rooms.

Good morning Russell and thank you for taking the time to post your review regarding your recent stay with us. I am pleased that you noted that our rooms were clean and the bathrooms were spacious. We worked hard to ensure we made our rooms more comfortable when we renovated them. As for the size we are unfortunately locked in with that as it is a 30 year old property and we lease, we do not own it. We are also more a corporate motel and for a room with a view you would probably have been better suited to stay at the beach down at Bargara. Still thank you for taking the time to post your review as we value ALL feedback. Enjoy the rest of your trip.

Kindest regards

Spent 4 nights here and was very comfortable. It is not top of the line, but clean as a whistle, handy to town and restaurants, comfortable bed, every facility - and the fresh fruit compote for breakfast is absolutely delicious.

I had a recent overnight stay in Bundaberg and I would honestly say that you would go far and wide to find a cleaner hotel room. I have stayed in some 4 and 5 star establishments and this establishment is certainly of one of the most immaculate I have stayed in.

Whilst the décor is a little dated, the staff and cleanliness and location certainly make up for it. The bed was super comfortable, air con was good, bathroom was renovated and overall a pleasant place to stay. If you were planning to spend a large amount of time in your room, the size may not suit but it suited me splendidly of a quick overnight stay.

The CBD was a 10 minute walk and there was some good eating places close by. And importantly, the airport was only 10 minutes away,

Well done!

I stayed here approximately 18 months ago and can say the standards have not slipped. Rooms are always clean,the bathroom is spotless every day, the bed gave a good sleep. TV had great reception on all channels. Internet was fast and also free. The bathrooms are a really good size. It has a guest's laundry $6 in total for the washing machine and dryer and they give you free washing powder which saves a lot of hassle. The couple of nights I used the air con I hardly noticed it was on from a noise view.
You are certainly made to feel welcome here which to me is an important aspect of any stay.
Breakfasts are a good size and eating them outside the room in the morning is very pleasant.
No evening meals however there is a wealth of restaurants all around.

Would I look around to stay anywhere else in Bundaberg? No.
