The main shops, cafes and restaurants are less than five-minutes' walk away and a Woolworth supermarket is ten-minutes' walk away. The beach is also a five-minute walk from the motel and both the Captain Cook Lookout and the iconic Cape Byron Lighthouse can be reached within 30-minutes' walk.

All the basics are covered

The rooms are clean, simply furnished and well presented with all the basic amenities provided, including the added perk of having tea and coffee making facilities.

Hearty breakfast

A cooked to order breakfast is available which guests reported to be freshly prepared and delicious.

Negative Reviews

Discrepancy between website photos actual rooms

Guests reported that motel is old and rundown and the website photos showcasing the rooms are not representative of the actual rooms. The rooms were found to be small in size and appointed with old and outdated furnishings. Some of the fixtures were in poor condition, the air conditioning did not always function and the beds were also old and in need of replacing. Guests felt that the hotel charges premium prices for the location but fails to deliver in quality and value for money.

Poor Wi-Fi connection

Although free Wi-Fi is included in the room rate, many guests reported problems with the service. Guests complained that the connection was either weak and slow or they could not connect to the Wi-Fi at all. Those in rooms farthest from the reception desk seemed to experience this problem.

Stained carpet

Guests reported that the rooms were not cleaned to a high standard and that the carpet, which was stained, needed replacing.
