Good standard accommodation with the advantage of having a range of restaurants plus a cinema complex close by. An amazing complex which also includes a coffee shop, all kinds of eating out experiences plus markets that run Thursday to Sunday inclusive. Interesting Italian decor throughout and the place really buzzes when the markets are on. Accommodation is upstairs and separate...

Eclectic resort, tidy enough, but why would you put a timer on the aircon so that it automatically goes off in the early hours of the morning, and the "free wi fi" doesn't connect, at all ! These things aren't hard to fix, but if you read other reviews, this has been going on for quite some time !

The Ettalong Beach Tourist Resort is an italian hidden haven. I took my family to this place and we all had a great time. No complaints and a very fun time was enjoyed by all. The wonderful Italian decor of the place was amazing from the fabulous artwork to the lead light features. The Hunter Valley Gardens were spectacular as...

We stayed here on the weekend. The rooms are small and the bed seemed small as well. However it was clean and tidy. The complex itself was very interesting with a cinema and market style with cafes and shops. Would stay again but only an overnight stay. We had a communal balcony also which was a little strange.

Stayed here a couple of nights. I was impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms. There is a picture theatre and several restaurants within the building and on the weekend the markets are also downstairs all of witch is under cover. There is a path along the waterfront which is a short walk away and town is only a few...

This motel is unusual as it is combined in a complex with a cinema and restaurants. I think there is a lot that could be improved, but the location is good and with a little flexibility with reception arrangements it would be a lot better.

I'm a girl from Italy and I'm a student.

The staff is very polite and...

I realyy like this place as I love the market underneath, all the shops offering bargains and the atmosphere with the Greek statues everywhere! Restaurants and even a cinema is in the complex. Beach is a short walk across the road and a ferry service within 500 metres

Thank you for your review - the owner has really tried to bring a touch of Mediterranean Europe to Aus! Most people that come here are fascinated with the detail in the architecture and Italian Renaissance artwork. The market has some great shops in it with unique products you won't find elsewhere. We hope you will visit us again soon.

We didn't have much time to look around as we were on a quick trip for a funeral. What we did see we loved and I felt like I was in a little Village in the Mediterranean. I just loved it and would love to go back. It was very relaxing sitting having breakfast and feeling like you were in...
