Arrived for a 2 night stay, we found the actual senior Hosts of the Motel were extremely pleasant, homely and welcoming. Secure parking a bonus. Our room was on the first floor with a private patio and plenty of room and quality décor. Quiet and access to an over head walkway to the waterfront. We would love a return visit.

I spent 3 nights with my partner and couldn't be happier A quiet comfy room with a pleasant courtyard for a perfect breakfast The location is directly opposite the marina which was perfect for dinner and evening walks whilst only a short drive to the many beautiful sights and walks around Port Stephens
