It's in a good location, nice views and plenty of wild life around. A clean & comfortable place to stay. Having the St. Bernard Hotel next door was a bonus and the food superb. The rooms were well presented and clean, comfortable and good value for money. The Peacock show was great entertainment and the bush walk was interesting.

This trip was a last minute decision for a company wine tour & I booked less than a week out so we didn't have a lot of options. The room was very affordable but the room pictures made me think it was very basic, bed & bathroom. It didn't mention anything about food at the motel or nearby so I...

Amazing views from the second floor. Highly recommended getting one on the second floor or above for the views (YOU CAN SEE THE OCEAN!). Few downfalls; shower pressure isn't great, hot water isn't overly hot and runs out quickly, can hear other guests easily (thin walls?). Receptionist was very helpful.

We stayed with the family a few days last week in 2 rooms with the family to get away and bond. A motel is perfect for a family with kids because you can come and go as you please and just be relaxed about it. The area is really nice, the air is so fresh! The owners were helpful (yet...

Absolutely loved our two day stay recently. The outside of the motel is very dated but the reception was good and very helpful and friendly. The room was pleasant but dated and the bathroom adequate but very clean. The bed was too hard for my liking but my husband loved it. But all this faded into oblivion when you walked...

Stayed last saturday night to attend a friend's wedding on Tamborine Mountain. Shopped around for the best price and found this place to be by far the most reasonably priced. Friendly and welcoming reception staff. Our upstairs room was very clean and the bed was super comfortable. The view from the balcony and the free wi-fi were bonuses we did...
