I could have tolerated the dated and tacky rooms and I could have over looked the fact that we were unable to sit in the balcony due to the cigarette smoke from the balcony next door. To tell you the truth having to listen to loud music coming from a venue two rooms away was starting to annoy me at...

Don't let the photos on the internet fool you into thinking that waters edge is a nice motel. Yes the outside area has been redone and there is a nice deck overlooking the water but that is it. The rooms are disgusting, loud and small. We booked a "water view room" so we thought we would have a nice view...

Torn between a 2 & a 3 to be honest, you just cannot market yourself as a boutique hotel when your carpets, walls & doors are all varying shades of brown, popping some modern art on the wall doesn't cut it. No mini bar, rooms look like they're from the 80's and are in serious need of a refurb, no...

I normally stay at this hotel on the drive from Moreton Bay area to Queanbeyan. The beds are great and the hotel is always quiet even when its fill booked out. I would recommend this hotel. The pool is great.

What a wonderful escape. All of the staff from reception to wait staff to housekeeping were happy and friendly and keen to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Close to many clubs and hotels and within comfortable walking distance to all of the town's shops.

very expensive for the price the only thing going for it is the location. The rooms are small without any fans in the bathroom and the paint on the walls was chippped and the entire room needed a facelift. Paid $230 a night over the xmas holidays which was an absolute joke. Paid for a deluxe which was suppose to...

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...

“Water view is the main charm. Not worth staying unless you pay for that.”

  • View from balcony.
