The most comfortable bed and pillow I think I've ever experienced in a hotel, anywhere. Slept as well as being at home in my own bed. The room in general was clean and comfortable, well appointed and roomy. Di and Fred are friendly and welcoming hosts. Highly recommend this motel whether you're travelling for business or a holiday.

A last minute decision to stay one night in a town we hadn’t stayed before. So very welcoming on arrival, provided just enough information to give us some options around food that evening. Clean location, clean rooms and looked newly renovated. All you could need, comfortable beds, quiet location, pool, air con, underground parking and wifi that actually worked. You also have the local club down the road for a feed. 8-10 minute walk in the morning to the beach. Would love to stay here again.

We have stayed here several times on our way to & from the Gold Coast. It is one of the best properties we have stayed in. Clean, well appointed & Fred is a gem. Room service is excellent. If you are a golfer or bowler, the country club is just up the road.

Both Di and Fred ,the Managers were extremely friendly, very helpful and an excellent example on how Managers should manage a Motel. Room was super clean and extremely comfortable. Bed and shower was excellent and at last a motel with no mould in the shower...YAY!!!!!. We arrived just as the on site restaurant was closing however the ladies working that night were super helpful and we made our order and it was delivered free to the room. Food was very good. Both were exceptional in level of service and most importantly having a laugh. When you are mature and you start talking about your first taste of alcohol and you mention Porphyry Pearl and Ben Ean, it quickly starts the laughter..for you young ones you need to google. It was a 2 night stay on our way back from Brunswick Heads. Fabulous Motel, Fabulous location and fabulous Managers and staff. Huge thanks to all
