“we really liked this place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

It is a nice mix between a motel and a hostel. Our room was nice though the bathroom was a bit old and dated and had a shower curtain. The room had a small fridge which was nice but we didn't need it and we unplugged it because it was noisy. The kitchen and dining common rooms are fantastic as is the games room.

Although clean, the rooms are small and basic. The shower was only luke warm for all 3 nights and the shower water spread out beyond the shower curtain. The hot water tap screamed in protest and the hand basin taps both leaked. The rooms had no sound proofing and the TV must have been the cheapest available. Would be good for backpackers if at backpacker prices. The communal kitchen was the only highlight. No room service or clean towels over 3 nights (very small towells)

Good location and kitchen facilities and that’s about it. The walls are paper thin and the pipes banging in the ceiling was just an added extra. If you do not exhaust yourself chasing whalesharks or snorkelling do not expect to get a good night’s sleep. The rooms are small and clean with a fridge, the kitchen area has complimentary tea, coffee, etc and everything you need, but seriously when you can hear your neighbours conversing in the next room not good. Only average and we would pay for something better next time guess you live and learn.

Perfect location - off the main drag in the pretty residential bit and not on the soul-less main drag - within walking distance of all the shops.

Basic rooms (bathroom REALLY needs an upgrade.....) but the communal area is great - fantastic kitchen setup, very very clean, enjoyed the BBQ and being able to just cook up a storm. Bring some lights for outdoors though! It's basically a better backpackers, a little pricey, but then everything is expensive in Exmouth.

Walls are really thin so you'll hear the person next door cough, so if you are a particularly light sleeper, it's a little tricky - preferable to Potshot party town though!!!!

Would definitely stay here again.

Price is reason to choose this place. Not the cleanest kitchen I've seen in my life...but all the rest is good

Average standard accommodation... small rooms but clean and has the basics... kitchen, pool, barbecue and communal lounge if you need them... but food is easy to get in town which is just a short walk... a little pricey for what you get... would expect daily servicing of the rooms and even a continental breakfast at this price... but then it is Exmouth where nothing is cheap...

Clean, easy, light rooms with air con. Pool is nice and cool. Manager Ronnie is a hoot. Got BBQ to cook on as well as a large kitchen / dining room for guest use.

Has a pool table & free wireless internet.

Very friendly and just off the main drag and a few minutes walk to the shopping centre and pub.

Could not work out a way to slow the fan on the air conditioning unit but did not ask so could just be pilot error.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool don't get the cars coming and going outside their windows but they can hav...
