We recently stayed overnight and were pleasantly impressed with the refurbished results - delightful decor, tasteful artwork - loved the welcoming package of champagne and chocolates! Ideally located - unfortunately we were there on a Public Holiday and could not find any hotels or restaurants that were open so - our dining experience left a bit to be desired.

I have stayed here a few times now, rooms are always fresh and clean, quiet atmosphere, close to go for places to eat, also supplies home made rocky road which up until now had not tasted it but am now sure I have missed out in the past, owners are only too happy to please.

Very friendly reception. Very clean and comfortable. Complimentary small bottle of wine and chocolates were appreciated. Older style motel with modern furniture. Bed was great. Good Parking. Booked direct with motel, much better for the venue as most booking services charge a high commission.

We have been blown away by the incredibly understanding, most gracious hosts that Col and Sue are here at the Black Marlin Motel. Let me tell you our story as to how we ended up at this little gem...

After a long trip, it was a nice surprise. Rooms are small but well fitted out. The hotel is off the main road so quiet, but close enough to walk to dinner. Owners were really helpful and the place is kept clean and tidy,
