This motel is an easy drive to and from the Pacific Highway. We were pleasantly surprised by the small but well renovated unit with all we needed. the staff were friendly and helpful. Particularly pleased we could take our well-behaved dog.

Arrived to friendly staff at the motel but was surprised at how small the "Small Family Room" really is. However the queen bed and two bunk beds were great and very comfy. Just not a lot of wiggle room in the living area. Our dog was happy on his floor mat with room to stretch out. The bathroom is really...

I emailed to them requesting for room availability. They took a week to respond. Then I said ok and they took another week to respond. Then they asked for my card details which I responded. They did not respond me one week later. They did not respond to me two weeks later. After I have to submit the feedback form...

The guest has greatly exaggerated in this review and this is partly the reason we have chosen not to accommodate them. This guest did not wait 'weeks' between replies, was answered promptly, and due to elusiveness in their emails was asked to call us directly which they did not. Ultimately we could not facilitate their multiple and difficult requests and...

Whilst driving from Queensland to Victoria I required accommodation that was pet friendly because I was travelling with my cat. James at reception was very friendly and more than happy to help out with any requests. I was able to park directly underneath my room as well as directly out front. The rooms are a little old but still have...

We stayed one night here on our way to Queensland. We found the location on a steep hill next to a main road okay but the bushes near the units were being used by travellers to relieve their pets. This is a pet friendly motel. Our room was quite adequate and clean but the hand basin did not have a...

We constantly want to break up our trips visiting my family on the Gold Coast from our home in the capital & stay here usually once a year each way. Having 2 jack russells and being so pet friendly, Koala Tree is much better quality than all others we have experienced and very comfortable. Being so easy walking distance to...

A lovely pet friendly motel room. Very modern upgrade with timber floors. Wish other motels would be so accommodating of fur kids. Friendly helpful staff. So grateful I could bring my two little dogs for Christmas night overnight stay to busier family. I'll be back!

Ughhh! Disgusting is the best word. At $159 a night plus $20 per night for the pet you would expect it to be at least clean and bug free. It is filthy with massive cockroaches and ants all over the place. The air conditioner did not work. My husband checked the filters and they looked like they had never been...
