A comfortable bed and the standard room providing adequate 3-4 star facilities. The TV provided a wide range of channel.and internet access... More

I was reluctant to try the Dog Rock after all this time as my previous experiences were only considered to be average. However I was very surprised at the room we had. It was spacious and newly refurbished by the look of it with a nice bathroom. Good value tariff as well. And they have an excellent restaurant

This was our second stay at this motel and it was great to walk into our room and to see some really nice renovations. It was nicely decorated and very clean. We also had a very comfortable sofa from which to watch the TV. The bed was comfortable so we had a good night sleep. The air-conditioning worked well so... More

We stayed here 1 night as part of our trip. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room was very clean and comfortable. Great views of the city, close to shops. Would recommend this place. The lady at reception advised they are in the process of renovating the rooms over time.

Our room is very disappointing. We are here on a coach tour and our fellow passengers all say the same thing. The room is clean but is dark and dingy and obviously hasn't been updated for years - 20 or more. I had to phone reception to ask where the light switch for the bathroom is and that was before...

Stayed here for a night when accompanying my daughter to a conference. My main features for any motel are cleanliness and location and this Motel ticked both boxes. Literally across the road from Dog Rock and a shopping centre with all the take-away's and plenty of restaurants. I even felt safe out and about by myself of a night time.... More

We returned to the Dog Rock Motel more than 15 years since our last stay. It looks the same on the outside but the renovated rooms are a treat. We treated ourselves to a Superior Suite which was a really good thing to do. The bedroom is separate from the living area which meant we were not crowded at all.... More
