Reviewed yesterday NEW

The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean, had everything you would need for a short stay. Very quiet location. The motel is within walking distance to shopping centre and tavern. A short drive to beaches and large bowling clubs, restaurants and coffee shops/cafes

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 12 January 2017

Now girls and boys, the Island Palms proved to be the greatest positive surprise for quite some time. In the world of ratios -what we pay for what we get- this place is the winner in the Great Lakes area, bar none. Sparkling clean rooms with perfect light and abundant space make it the first choice for accommodation. The outstanding...

Room was not as great as expected. Bed was comfortable, but had a few maintenance issues which were noted with reception when checking out. We based our booking on past reviews, a little disappointed. TV and power points weren't working and found out that master switch was off. Didn't use any other facilities so can't comment on overall. Wasn't the...

This motel was a really good place to stay for a few nights. The service was great, very helpful person on Reception and I really appreciated the flexibility and ability to accomodate my requests. The room was generally quiet (a bit of noise from the people next door) and quite spacious.

The room was very clean, loved the sliding doors going out to the back grassed area. The bed was comfortable. I went to the restaurant for dinner and it was lovely with very friendly staff. The only down side was the air conditioner dripped right next to the bed and the bathroom had a terrible musty smell.

We stayed for an overnighter while travelling to Sydney. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were large and clean. The bathroom was also well cleaned. The only thing we had to be aware of, was not to open the bathroom door if someone was on the toilet. The onsite restaurant was open for locals and guests alike. We...

Great place to stay. Close to all amenities. The restaurant food is delicious. Veronica always looks after us and she is really lovely. Nothing is too much trouble for her. The unit is clean and the beds comfortable.
