Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

I have never left a review for any place i have stayed; but the professional and friendly service was exceptional and the high standard of cleanliness was the best i have ever come across. Compared to more modern accommodation, i would still come back here. Especially for the real hot water in the shower! 10/10.

From initial contact, till in person, Fiona was great. The room is standard with all that you could want for your stay, the glass bottled milk and the fresh cold water in the fridge a welcomed touch of service. The location is great, close to town, food ( The Spotted Dog), is practically next door, and amenities, attractions etc. Not...

Thank you for your kind words. I do my best to make sure that all my customers have a pleasant stay and that every body feels welcome at 'my place'. And yes, the location is great, closest motel in Bundaberg to central business shops, restaurants and entertainment, including the Moncreiff Theatre where concerts are held regularly.

I stayed here for two nights in March 2017, in the centre of town, and unexpectedly very nice. It is exceptionally clean, spacious, and close to Bundaberg Central. Well priced. Car parks are limited, however, it is with easy walking to Bundaberg central.

In abit of a rush to find accomodation, this looked quiet nice and easy for one night. But from the first phone calls book to arriving there, and leaving in the morning the receptionist was nothing but rude to myself and others I was there with. The rooms were relatively quiet but my bathroom was disgusting. And to top it...

My rules here, as clearly displayed in the rooms, are no unpaid guests after 9:00 pm. This being in consideration of other guests. When I see guests who have not paid to stay leaving early in the morning, I do ask for payment and will charge "extra person rate". Also, at NO TIME do I allow partying in my motel,...

Perfect for a on overnight dash to Bundaberg for business. No frills, but made up for in friendliness of hosts. The location made the choice easy and the price was right. I wasn't expecting luxury, but it was clean and the milk for tea was fresh, not long-life - always a bonus.

This place was the perfect to stay. The prices were reasonable and the accomodation to match. The rooms are a little outdated in looks, but function as they should. Everything was clean and tidy.

We had a family function in the CBD and booked Matilda because it was walking distance to the venue and a good price. We were not disappointed as it was clean and welcoming.
