This is a brilliant family run motel. Budget price without the budget feel. Very clean, large room with everything you need. For the price, it exceeded my expectations. The staff were wonderful and friendly and ensured my stay was pleasant. They have a nice little pool, but only a five minute walk to the beach anyway. Whenever I am back...

Absolutely great stay here. Large clean room, easy parking, and lovely helpful owners. The hotel is just around the corner from the main action but quiet. One of the best places we stayed in 6 weeks of traveling in Australia!!

I could see the motel had an amazing location - literally 5 minutes walk to 4 Mile beach or Macrossan st - but I found so much more than I expected. A lovely bright room with its own small outdoor area (and clothes line - very handy). A fabulous little pool area with a great outdoor kitchen, and wonderfully warm...
