Beautiful location with pool, right on the water. This hotel is dated. Looks like it was a very nice hotel 20-30 years ago. We were bitten by something in the bed. The air conditioner didn't work properly. There were bugs like small cockroaches in the bathroom at night. The toilet leaked. The buffet breakfast was ordinary.

Our stay was comfortable enough. The room was smaller then expected and very basically fitted out. There is no elevator which was a bit of a nightmare with bags and 2 kids. The pools were great and the view is outstanding. We ate at the restaurant for both dinner and the buffet breakfast and the food was great at both....

This motel is on the waters edge and a short walk into the main town centre. From their website we expected the motel to be of a better standard however the rooms are very tired albeit clean. Fine for an overnight stay but not if planning on a few days break. Restaurant food was very good as was the full...

We were 2 couples and stayed there for one night. Beds and sheets were clean, staff were polite and friendly. Bathroom had built-it shampoo and shaver cream. Breakfast was $15 p/p with one day prior booking, including continental and hot ones. Hotel seems a bit old but it's been maintained well, rooms have key instead of swipe key, no elevator...

Stayed for one night on a business trip in Dec 16. Its location is the key with a nice outdoor undercover area next to the pool with a clear and uninterrupted water views, nice place to sit down with a drink.. This is a motel level property with all the comforts you would expect of a 4 star motel. Would...

This hotel is great for a one or two night stay. The rooms are comfortable, although in need of refurbishment. The location is fine, on the 'water's edge', as well as on the edge of town. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the price not too bad. It is certainly not luxurious - a 3 star at best -...

What a disappointment. Our recent 3 night stay nearly caused tears within minutes of arriving. Our water view room was of the inlet with a public car park in between. Our room was musty smelling, chairs on balcony nearly tipped us backwards, carpet stained, shower head rusted, room poor condition overall. It has been a long time since we have...

Came to enjoy 2 quiet days by the water, got 2 sleepless nights listening to function guests get progressively drunker, louder and more foul mouthed, culminating in 3am corridor antics! When I checked out and voiced my opinion that the hotel needed to choose between functions and hotel guests I received no apology, just the desk operator had been there...

Spent 3 nights here. Although the Motel was full, it was very quiet as this is situated at the "waters edge". Close to the city center and very convenient for shopping and restaurant. Check-in and check-out are quick. Room and bathroom are clean. I like it that our room has a river view and we can just look out and...
