I think it is safe to say that my experience at this hotel was not a pleasant one! The service was absolutely atrocious! I have never had to deal with such an angry and spiteful management team. They treated every problem and concern as an inconvenience.

I stayed recently at this motel and was warned before arriving by a friend that I was staying, quote "in a prison cell" (his words, not mine) and the only thing missing were the bars on the window! This place is in urgent need of entire renovation in the room I stayed in - I can't comment on other units... More

Not having been to Margaret River area before, we found it tricky to choose which area would suit us best. Dunsborough turned out well. Stayed a few nights here in a family suite with kitchenette. Basic motel room but had good space and was clean. Parking right at door. Very quiet at night, though we didn't have anyone in the... More

Excellent location, wonderful rooms and cosy place to stay. Thoroughly recommend this accomodation for location and cleanliness. I shared the room with a friend and all went smoothly from check in to departure.

This motel has friendly staff and is very central to the village centre and there are many tourist attractions within a day's drive. We visited local wineries for lunch and really enjoyed our stay here. There are BBQs and a swimming pool at this venue and you would have to be hard to please not to enjoy your stay. There... More

We stayed in a king bed spa room. Everything was neat and clean, with lovely bathroom products. The location is convenient, we were able to walk to shops and restaurants including Dome across the road for breakfast. Check in was smooth and we appreciated the free wifi.

Great spot right in the heart of town got a half price deal off trip advisor as well with a free bottle of wine so a great start to a beautiful weekend in Dunsborough and Margaret river with the odd winery to break up the weekend!

A four night stay in a standard motel room proved to be comfortable and a good base for our short stay. The room, while basic, had clean linen, bathroom, fresh towels daily and all the standard motel facilities we required. The location is excellent and within easy walking distance to shops, restaurants and take away eateries. For basic motel accommodation... More

We stayed here for only one night on our way from Perth to the Margaret River. We were upgraded to a self contained unit so we walked across the road to the supermarket to get something for dinner to have in our room room. The furnishings of the room were basic as was the bathroom, but it was clean and... More

You cannot find a better location in this small busy town. Close to restaurants and shops, it is a good place to base yourself. Accommodation is basic but fair for the price, shower includes amenities and plenty of fresh towels. Rooms are a bit drab - if they changed to bed cover it would brighten things up ! Ask for...
