On route to Fraser Island when cyclone Debbie struck, had to find emergency accomodation late at night with all hotels/motels closed. Approached nearby hotel with receptionist who said they had rooms available but she had just closed for the evening - about 10pm. Found this little gem who were also closed but welcomed us for an overnight stay! The room...

A change of owners since my last visit. Reception area has been improved with computers for free internet access and free Wi-Fi in rooms. Gardens and grounds not as well maintained as previously seen. Would like to see sliding screen doors replaced with security screens. Had booked the corporate suite but received family room as they were changing beds in...

We've stayed here a few times in different rooms. Always warmly welcomed . Cleanliness privacy and an oasis at the door with the spa pool and bbq area. Away from the hussle bustle of the esplanade. Boat harbour traffic noise is minimal and we were surprised at how relaxing this little gem is we booked an extra night. A short...

Stayed for 10 days. Visiting family. Central location. Excellent friendly service. Units are very clean, full aircon, easy access we were traveling with 2 mature ladies that were very well catered for. If there was anything we needed they owner supplied. When we return with added family that can not be accommodated they will definitely be staying here. Thank you...

Very impressed with their friendliness and facilities. We had to change our stay dates and it was done with no issues. Room was very clean, refreshed daily. Had a meal cooked for us at the last minute and was delivered with a big smile.

From time of arrival the lady was very helpful to directing me where to get something to eat after arriving later than expected. I asked where I needed to visit next night and she offered if her husband was not visit to take me. The room was very well maintained the swimming entertainment area very relaxing. From outside it doesn't...

This motel was a pleasant surprise, from the out side it looks like it needs a revamp but the room we had was neat and clean. Nice sized bathroom. Seating for 4 at a small table. A microwave and bowls plates and cutlery was a convenient addition. Only small complaints, an iron board but no iron and no plug for...

Very clean, very comfortable room with everything included. Stayed 3 nights recently with my husband, daughter and granddaughter. The small family run motel is quiet, convenient, clean, has its own coin operated laundry, had a private outdoor area and a fridge that was a bit bigger than a bar fridge which was a plus for us with the 'extras' needed...

We spent two nights here on a very rainy weekend and it was perfectly adequate. The motel is an old styled block brick wall type so it was cold when we entered, but they had air conditioning and that was soon sorted. There was plenty of room, three beds including one queen, a fridge, microwave and even tea towels, plates...

Stayed here one night. Didn't have opportunity to try out the pool or spa but they looked inviting. We had been travelling for over a week and this was the most comfortable mattress by far. Staff were very obliging and helpful. Central location if you have a car as business hub and food venues a short drive from motel. Quiet...
