    Stayed just the one night unfortunately but had to be on the Gold Coast the next day. The motel is situated right on the river, great for anyone interested in doing some fishing. Our room was very clean and well equipped with a small kitchenette.

    Hello Rob When we stayed there was no mention of a security deposit. I think we booked online and paid in advance so maybe that makes a difference? Regards Di
