Positive Reviews

Decent location

Guests have generally enjoyed the location of this motel, finding it easily accessible from the highway as well as conveniently close to the shops and dining options in the city centre. Guests have also noted that the drive to the beach is an easy one.

Friendly and helpful staff

Overall, previous guests have been impressed with the standard of service here. Despite the combative tone of some of the responses to online feedback from guests, the staff and management are found to be welcoming, friendly, and helpful. Useful area information is provided at check-in.

Fairly priced

It's fair to say that this motel lacks some frills but guests do tend to find that the rooms are reasonably priced. Breakfast costs a little extra but the availability of free Wi-Fi and parking have generally helped previous guests feel they have enjoyed value for money here.

Negative Reviews

Traffic noise can be a problem

Given that this hotel is so close to the highway, it probably won't be too surprising to hear that a fair number of guests have mentioned traffic noise. Some have found the noise from the highway excessive so light sleepers may wish to request a room at the rear of the property.

Some aspects of rooms disappoint

Guests do tend to find the rooms here are clean and reasonably comfortable. However, reviews also indicate that you can expect to find the accommodation looks dated and in need of maintenance is some areas.

Mixed feedback about Wi-Fi and Foxtel

Feedback about the Wi-Fi here is a little mixed. Some guests have encountered no significant issues but others have described the Internet service as poor. A number of guests also mention that the advertised Foxtel offers a limited number of channels.
