Reviewed May 26, 2012

Myself and my partner went for two nights in May 2012. We were skeptical as it was cheaper than we thought but what a surprise! When we arrived we were welcomed by the most pleasant owner. He was a delight. Full of helpful information and a thorough map of the local area. Our room was MASSIVE- fair enough the decor isn't fully up to date but I am an interior designer and thought it was a beautiful seaside inspired room. Extremely clean and comfy, Air-con (cold and heat) great flat screen TV, kitchen full of EVERYTHING you need for your stay, and even a welcome basket of tea, coffee and biscuits! On our last morning we sat in the reception for an hour chatting away about our stay. The owner is a lovely family man who loves to travel and with advise on anything you need help with.

P.s- the bed was the comfiest we have slept on in the 10 months of being in Australia.

What a pleasure to be welcomed! Ideal set up - double downstairs and mezzanine with single and bunks. (They have four of these units, as well as standard configurations)

We had a bathtub as well as a shower, another bonus for kids.

Otherwise all as expected. No complaints at all, and a fair price in what is an expensive town (we were quoted a 'special' price in Best Western which was 80 bucks more, and only offered a foldout for the third child)

We stayed overnight in its Family room during the Easter weekend. I thought that it was very decent and spacious for the five of us. I would stay here again next time. We didn't hear our neighbors talking and the receptionist was quite friendly.

I would not recommend this hotel as there are better similar priced hotels in the area. The receptionist was unhelpful and rooms are very dated. The walls were so thin that we couldn't get to sleep for the noise of our neighbour snoring.

Walked in at 5:30pm and they were happy to have us.
Little motel with 15 rooms only - a few different configurations. Payed an extra $10 for a room with a spa.
Bathrooms are a little dated - but not as much as your usual motel.
Very clean, very affordable.
Aircon (cooling only) and gas fire in each room, very well equipped kitchenette (no hotplates).
Wonderful, helpful staff.

We were travelling the GOR on our bikes and were very hot and tired so we decided to stay close and have some luxury rather than camp at a caravan park. We were offered special bike parking and were personally shown to our room. Very helpful fella. It was perfect for our needs and was VERY close to the beach and restaurants.

It also has laundry facilities and clothes line or dryer if you ask.

we stayed here while traveling the Ocean road and it was a great stop. the two of us got a large room with a kitchen for only 95 dollars. that is a great price for this area and the location was wonderful. we would definitly stay here again when we are in the area.

Room Tip: call different hotels for rates
