Welcolming hosts to a perfectly situated Motel. The well equipped shared kitchen was reminiscent of a camp kitchen. The cleanliness of this space was a credit to the hosts and the guests who hold the place with respect.

Relaxing time and close to everything. Happy to recommend. Management very friendly and helpful. Everything you need is here. Walk to main street venues. Priced just right and small enough to feel special.

This is our favourite motel so far as we are travelling up the coast of Qld. I've chosen 'budget' accommodation all the way. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Our room is large and comfortable and very clean. There is a communal kitchen with microwaves etc and the owner will take you to a washing machine/dryer to do your... More

This low budget motel offers lovely rooms with their own patio. Within its category - low budget - it rates high on my scale primarily because the units a located in a rainforest garden and you have the option to sit outside in your own area.

Our first stay here with Danni and Mitch as a cold-call 'find' after getting a quote from the well-worn and tired-looking Castaways Resort nearby.
