“Overnight Stay”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

We had never been to Tin Can Bay, so we called in on the way home for a look.
We had a king room - beautifully clean, as an ex-motel housekeeper I was very impressed.
Gael and Jeff very informative and helpful. Pool area and gardens well kept and inviting.
Definately recommend this motel - only down side as one other reviewer states, beware the sandflies !!

Rooms clean--King room. Gael is wonderful! Dog friendly motel-so our Bel loved it along with her doggie treats!!!
BBQ area and pool.
The only downside are the sandflies--so bring plenty of bug spray and itchy cream.
We'll go back again. Thank you

Very nice and clean place. We stayed one night before going to Fraser Isl for two weeks.
Gael, very nice and informative person.
Dolphins comming every day to TinCanBay. You can walk to the water at 7:00AM and be with them, if you get lucky they can touch you. Dolhine feeding starts 8:00AM Five to eight make sure you start a queye to get a fish for feeding.
Thanks Geal.

We were visiting Tin Can Bay for my brother's 6oth birthday so really just needed a place to crash after the party. Gael who ran the motel was really lovely and helpful. The room was really big with a nice big queen size bed that was really firm and comfy for my back. If the bed is to soft then my back gives me grief. You could not complain about anything really, it was great. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Don't leave booking until the last minute you may miss out.

We had a 2 night stay here before heading over to Fraser. Very clean and comfortable. Kids absolutely loved the pool. The BBQ area was also really nice. Grounds beautifully maintained. Managers also very helpful and friendly. Thank you

Our short stay was very pleasnat, the place was very nice and clean, the room was good and well equipped with cutlery , we did not have time to use the swimming pool however the BBQ facility worked well and we enjoyed our grilled fish outside. Gael showed us all attractions around and she was very helpful. Thank you.
