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.

Yes the outside is a bit run down, but once you're in the rooms, they are quite nice, the aircond works and its in a great central location. The guy is also very easy to deal with regarding bookings. Just stayed there, would recommend and will stay there again. Reasonably priced too.

Booked a deluxe room, needs refurbishment. Very pleasant operators , greeted well given a 200ml long life mile and told where to go. The room seemed clean but very tired , it was listed as a deluxe room with a queen bed and a single. The towels were clean and toiletries supplied were acceptable. What let the property down was it was tired and needed maintenance the bathroom are needed updating very patched up... The bed was comfortable. for budget accommodation as they say you get what you pay for.

We booked the family room.. quite a big open room, half the room including the bathroom was very outdated and patched up the other half was semi modern but it did the job for us. The kitchenette had a microwave but no stove or stove top that made it a little difficult to organise meals. The owner was quite nice though, pretty casual.

As expected from other reviews, the outlook of the motel is not refurbished. However the rooms are clean and tidy. The beds are comfortable and it includes all the essentials. The owner is friendly and the room is at good price for an overnight stay.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. We had a king room and it was a bit dated and the tv was far to small for the room. My grandchildren enjoyed the inside pool,and the apartment room my daughter and her family stayed in was very nice and modern. Great pub 5 minutes walk away.

Thank you Sue for a no hassle, quiet and enjoyable stay. We arrived very early not intending to have our room only looking to leave some luggage. We were met with apologies that the aircon wasn't on, and we could occupy the accommodation. Our accommodation was clean, tidy, well appointed and suited our needs. Walking distance was the central business area including several dining venues.

A work colleague having previously stayed booked us a room each & for a solo traveler it was all I required. Yes the place needs some TLC but inside the generously sized room (9) I couldn't ask for more. The room was well furnished, clean allowed me to spread out my pc's utilising the large bench & thoughtfully placed 4-way powerboard. The bathroom worked fine as did the new split air-conditioning. Tucked away from the noise of traffic the Avalon is walking distance to the main street. I'll definitely return as it's great value.

The room was fairly clean, the location was good and the gentleman who checked us in was friendly but that was all the positives. The room desperately needs updating. The worst part was the bathroom that was falling apart, large dent in the tiled bench top, crack in the toilet (that water leaked from!) and mould above the shower due to there being no fan. I can put up with a budget hotel if I actually pay a budget price but there was not much available for the date that we choose so properties were in high demand which allows hotels to charge more. We only needed a bed overnight so I guess it served its purpose but I would not choose to stay there again.

We booked this place because it was close to the dive shop we were diving with the next day. When we checked in we were greeted with a very warm welcome and given a map of the area and told of all the hot spots to see. We asked if it would be possible to borrow two towels as we were going diving the next day and didn't have any of our own. The towels showed up in our room very shortly afterwards. The motel is very old and tired. The tiles in the bathroom are very colourful, I think there were about six different patterns going on. We came back from diving around noon the next day and saw the housekeeper tending to the other rooms. We did what we needed to do in the room and then left for the afternoon to go sightseeing. When we came back later in the day, our room had not been cleaned. I mentioned it when we were checking out the next day and were told our room should have been done. We weren't able to get on the wifi at all.
