Stayed there three nights. Had originally planned on two, but found the motel so accommodating and the area so full of things to do that we spent another day there on our "tourist pace" trip between Melbourne and Sydney.
This is a family-run motel, and we appreciated the personal attention to our needs. For example, when the wifi failed, it was re-booted immediately and worked well during our visit. Lots of tv channels, too.
We enjoyed easy access to a number of seaside walks and being close to the town of Eden, with the Coles supermarket and a nearby bottle shop.
Just one caution that has nothing to do with the motel, but everything to do with travelling in NSW.
New South Wales (along with other Australian states) has driving regulations that allow the police to stop any driver at any time to administer a breathalizer test with no need to prove reasonable cause. We were "breathalized" three times in NSW. Not a problem for us, as we sailed through the stops with a "have a safe trip, sir." BUT, the local police set up breathalizer stops every day of our visit to Eden on the Princes Highway very near the motel.
Message: don't drink and drive, especially in New South Wales!
