Great old style simple Motel. Comfy QS bed, great sized room with ample space for the sofa, desk and to swing a cat.... balcony too with magical views down a valley to the coast. You will also get a grand display of afternoon bird feeding and if you're lucky, a mating Peacock dance. A clean functional bathroom along with Tea/Coffee...

Arriving at the hotel my first impression was that it was quite old and a little run down. When entering the room I found it quite spacious, bathroom clean, nice balcony and great view. There were bird feeding trays so was nice to see the peacocks and cockatoos about the place. The ad on the radio suggested a nice quiet...

The best things here are the view from the balcony, the location next door to the St Bernard's pub and the lovely birds. The room is clean with just the basics. The bathroom was tiny but clean. There is a nice pool but it was very crowded with guests and their families. Ask for a room on the first floor.

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.
