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.

Room was clean, welcomingly bright and spacious with separate kitchenette and bathroom. Right on main road across from the beach and tourist info centre, but quiet enough for a light sleeper like me. Friendly reception. Taps were very stiff and bar fridge very small but these are minor issues for short stays.

The unit was spacious and well laid out. The bathroom appeared newly renovated. There was a well appointed kitchenette with a dining table and chairs. It was spotlessly clean. There was a long bench for suitcases. The bed was comfortable. The location was great - easy walking distance to town, beach, restaurants and shops. There was no-one at reception which made it tricky to access the key to the room, as we did not have the ability to make calls on our phones. The parking was tight.

I arrived at 9pm and was disappointed that the front counter closed at 8pm. However, the motel worked with me and left a key out for my room. The problem was that it is such a huge complex and there were no clear signs that I spent 15 minutes looking for my room. However, once I found where I needed to be, the room was lovely . I wanted to order breakfast but because I was late in I missed the opportunity to do this - can this be done online? I then had to go looking for some breakfast in the morning which I didn't want to do. I would stay at this motel in future as it was well presented and clean, as well as handy to the beach.

Renovated and very comfortable, great bed and lounge chairs. Could hear the sounds of the ocean which we love, could close the windows if you didn’t. Bright airy clean and smelling nice. Josh was very welcoming and helpful. Parking at your door, quite complex, walking distance to the food, shops and beach. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

Fantastic. On the outside looks like just another run of the mill motel. The rooms spotless and appear newly renovated. Highly recommended. We would have no hesitation in staying Gere again. Location is excellent being right near shops and restaurants.

Comfortable bed, nice décor, and undercover parking. So pleased to find 2 comfortable chairs unlike so many other hotels, where you get 1 chair leaving the bed for a second person to sit. The location was excellent and we would definitely return. The fish and chip shop on the wharf is fabulous. Get there early to avoid the dinner. time rush.

Highly recommend the beachfront hotel. Our room had a queen size bed and a single bed and the room itself was quite large and Spacious. It was more like a unit than a hotel room, it has a separate kitchen with a microwave and dining table and chairs. Bathroom was also large, with a decent size shower and great water pressure. The hotel is on the Main Street and only a couple of minutes walk from shops, restaurants and the beach.

This was the last place we stayed on a recent road trip and by far... it was my favourite. The service at the desk was really good... I did walk in while his wife was having a melt down over something ... clearly they weren't aware of a customer being there at the counter. Having said that, the service I received from the gent was outstanding. The room was brilliant... twin room with a brilliant layout. There was a seperate kitchen as well. The bedding, the mattresses ... all very good. The value was outstanding for what was on offer. I had the best nights sleep here of the entire trip. The value of this motel is great as well... and it's walking distance to everything. This is somewhere you could stay for days and I would recommend it to anyone.
