Stayed in many properties in this area over quite a few years including just recently & was looking forward to what sounded like a "neat , tidy & comfortable " place to stay . "Neat & Tidy" is all i can credit this overpriced establishment , not comfortable at all & if you check-inn after hours "the 24hr reception" is...

It's a fantastic property for the price I paid. Due to my flight issues, I first cancelled my booking & Samuel was kind enough to cancel it without a charge. Hence when the flight issue was sorted, I re-booked to an upgraded room type & once again Samuel offered a free upgrade. Clean & well located motel with all necessary...

My partner surprised me with a weekend away for my birthday recently. He didn't book and everything was booked out. We managed to get a place at Peninsula Nelson Bay that slept 9 people. It was a shock at first as it was like stepping back into the 50's. But it was clean and comfortable... you had to go across...

Great price, great location, great service. I don't know what else you would expect from this type of accommodation. Tap on kitchen sink was broken, mentioned it to reception and it was fixed in an hour. Remote for AC missing from one bedroom so used the one from main bedroom, problem solved. One power point not working, fixed almost immediately....

The townhouse was fine even not great per 4 star standard, but the check in / out process with their manager was nothing professional to mention, please be mindful you are running a hospitality business, you barely know the basic. I will never return and my only recommendation is do not go. Customer don't buy BS please.

Not quite what I would expect a 4 star motel to be, could be nicer to be labelled so highly, but was still a nice stay. Close to the water and friendly reception staff. The restaurant staff for breakfast weren't overly friendly or welcoming.

The room my husband and I stayed in was a nicely renovated/refurbished room in a quiet location with a small balcony, and a very comfortable king-size bed. The whole building, indoors and out, had obviously had a recent renovation and refurb and it all looked good and felt good. Off-street parking within the complex was plentiful.We found the staff to...
