Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautiful older style motel just a 50mtr walk through beautiful gardens to the beach. Manager was very helpful and able to recommend the best places to have a meal. Room was spotless, well laid out, plenty of storage space and beautiful views to the ocean, Very quiet location with undercover parking for guests.

Located on the beach at Tannum Sands and about 300 metres from the surf club, the motel is 70s style but very well maintained, with modern furnishings, a microwave and is ultra clean. I found the manager to be very helpful and welcoming and it was very good value for money.

Friendly staff and impressive location. Tannum on The Beach is a comfortable motel located on the door step to the Main Beach at Tannum Sands. Good food options with in a 10 minute walk. One can hear the ocean from the rooms. Beach is literally a 2 minute walk down the hill. The staff are helpful and were very flexible during recent pandemic problems. This is a go to place to stay in Tannum.

We spent one night in a Queen Room on the second level with an ocean view. Our room was modern, clean and, while a bit compact, the view out to see made the room feel spacious. The bed was comfortable and the motel was quiet and the pool pleasantly warm. The esplanade just in front of the motel offers a concrete walking track along the ocean front and we were amazed how well thought out the public areas were. Lots of covered eating areas looking out to sea. Not far from the motel are two supermarkets, two bottle shops and an excellent fish and chip shop. Just be aware that the servings of chips at Tannum Sands fish shop are Large !!

Corporate traveller looking for something different. Sick of the average Gladstone options so saw this motel in Tannum and it looked so peaceful . Rooms were super clean and the beds were amazing. Will definitely stay again now on my trips north. New owner as well and she is lovely.

This is a lovely Motel with very helpful hosts. We were on the ground floor and were able to walk out of our room into the garden. Room had a small kitchenette and everything else you need. A short walk and you are on the beach. You are able to walk to eateries or just a short drive. Would definitely stay here again.
