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.

The room was very nicely presented and clean. It has an elevator that works! It’s on a busy road but we didn’t hear much traffic being back from the road a bit. Shops are within walking distance. The bed was comfortable and the price was mid range for the area. Would stay again.

Booked the room on line which was easily done. On the day of our booking the motel deducted costs from our credit card and we received further instructions to assess our room,after hours, via outside safe by sms. We obtained our room card without any issues. We booked a standard queen room. The room was basic but well maintained and had a great shower. Motel is within easy walking distance of local restaurants and a Woolworths. Great place for a overnight stay. I would recommend this motel to friends

We have been regular and loyal guests at this motel for a number of years now and we don’t expect everything to go right all the time but recently everything has gone very wrong. Last time we stayed there was a terrible odour in our room and none of the lamps worked because obviously the room hadn’t been checked for these issues. We reported this to Wayne the manager when we were checking out and he told us he was happy to take that information and fix the problem. This time we checked in and our toilet didn’t flush. Wayne came to the room with a bucket of water and told us just to flush it using that. We said we weren’t happy with this level of accommodation and we would like a change of room or compensation for the inconvenience. He was clearly shocked by our response and told us they were fully booked and the owner would have to be consulted about any compensation and it was highly unlikely. Needless to say we have never heard from an owner. Or any more from Wayne about our ruined night’s stay. We had pre booked several nights of future accommodation and we have now cancelled all our forward bookings and will never return. What was once a fabulous place to stay is now a trap for unsuspecting victims who will pay for any level of service this mob care to offer. Beware when booking this place, your room could have hidden surprises (like a non functioning toilet) and you will pay full price regardless.

After an earlier review of a complete lack of room perpetration I was extremely nervous about staying here. In preparation I made alternate plans but fortunately I didn't need them. I made my booking on WOTIF, the welcome at reception was quick and efficient. The room was basic, tea and coffee, queen bed and basic toiletries. The room was clean enough for its age, the bathroom could use some new grout and a bigger tv wouldn't go astray. It's located near some nice restaurants near the Wharf, all a short stroll. I feel I paid a premium for this place but I understand we are coming out of a pandemic. There is a sign on the door saying to contact them directly to get a better rate. I would stay there again but it would be price dependant

I only give one star reviews when it is ESPECIALLY bad. Showed up for my booking at around 9.30pm as I had a 6am flight the next morning. Went to the room and it hadn't been cleaned, stunk of cigarettes, towels all over the floor, unmade bed, the place was a mess. Went to reception, where I was told there were no more rooms and I'd have to try and find something else close by. OR, it was also suggested to try one of the rain damaged rooms without carpet. I said "Mate I made the booking weeks ago" and the response was "We only received the booking on Wednesday". HAHAHA, yeh right so three days isn't enough to clean a room then. When I, quite rightfully complained about the situation, I was told "Look, I've said sorry and things happen in life. How you respond to them is up to you". Not only is it an absolute dump of a place, there is zero customer service as well. Spent the next hour and a half driving around trying to find somewhere else to stay, wonderful night I had. Thanks Wayne. AVOID.

We stayed here years ago and was very impressed. It was small but super clean, convenient to the airport and close to Hamilton restaurants. We stayed here mid September after an interstate holiday for 1 night and i'm afraid the standards have dropped. Wayne was nice in all my dealings there was no problem there and even without a receptionist there due to covid it was all very easy. My problem was it was dirty. I realise Covid must of affected this place terribly and i feel sad for them but the room we were in 209 needed a good clean, sugar soap the walls especially the bathroom, there were dirty marks which were removable (i tried) all over the walls. I thought queen beds went out years ago but we were still in a Queen bed which is not a big deal but we usually only book king beds as we are both tall. There were also tradies downstairs in the carpark chatting at 7am which woke us up. I wouldn't stay here again unfortunately.

Smell in room is absolutely terrible. - like someone chained smoked in here for days. Bathroom also smells awful when toilet is flushed. Tiny rooms which are old and dated. Glad I was only there for one night until my usual hotel had vacant. No one at reception at all - check in over the phone? Stains all over pillow. Verdict: avoid at all costs.

Three C,s. Cleanliness, comfortable and convenient to cafes and restaurants a short walking distance away. Room was spotless and I’m fussy. Bed was comfortable. Easy access to the airport and cruise terminal.
