“Clean and great position, but needs a refurb”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

We recently stayed for a 4 night stay and whilst the rooms were clean and comfortable, they are definitely in need of a refurb. The water pressure in the shower, or lack thereof, really needs to be fixed. On the plus side, the motel is in a great position and everything is within close walking distance. Despite staying for 4 nights, our rooms were not serviced once which I found unacceptable. The motel suited our purpose, but I would not be staying again.

We recently stayed at this motel. person at the desk was very rude and the service extremely poor. Motel says it has microwave and tea coffee making facilities. when we arrived there was neither. We requested the motel guy he didn't care. More than half the time in evening there was no one at the reception and was closed even though it said open till 8 pm. Stayed at plenty of motels never had this bad experience. Extremely poor value for $90.

This place was simply fantastic. We were on a road trip back from sydney ( a group of 5 young people) and had been calling around everywhere for a place to stay at late notice. We wouldn't be arriving until late, and they assured us that it would be ok. The welcome and hospitality was great. We didn't arrive until much later than we had originally said but they were there waiting for us and made us feel welcome. The rooms were very clean and the location was great! Would definitely stay there again! Thank you to the husband and wife over there for making us feel welcome and treating us so nicely. We really enjoyed our stay, had a great night sleep and loved your friendliness and all of your help.
Hopefully we will see you guys again.

Rooms are old. Places needs a refurbishment but we were on a budget but suited us fine. Have been a few months back when a young girl named Cassandra was managing the motel but it seems she has gone which is a shame.

Room had everything we needed but when the cleaners are in cleaning more attention to detail could be taken. Here's just a few things I noticed.
-Blankets thrown in cupboard (Not folded properly)
-Toaster crumb tray not emptied out
-Behind tv very dusty
-No spare toilet roll
-Rooms smell very old & musty
-Tables out front not wiped down (Very dusty & dirty)

Budget accommodation but to keep people coming back the standard of cleanliness needs to improve.

This place is old and we did make funny of hubby for booking it especially when we were greeted by the fish shower screen!! You know the one from the 70's with the fish and netting!! But it's clean, has big rooms, has friendly staff and is within walking distance to most things. It's not a luxury holiday spot but if on a budget and wanting to get away this place is perfect.

Room Tip: Walk to the local fish and chip shops for dinner YUM!!

We stayed here for a quick getaway up the coast of NSW. we were after something relatively cheap and this is what we found - we did quite well! Despite looking very dated from the outside, inside the rooms were spacious, neat and most importantly, clean. I wouldn't hesitate staying here again.
