"We are centrally located for business, pleasure, relaxing, entertainment and health care." Conveniently located just south of the Qld border. In fact we are only a short 10 min walk from the border. Our central location means that you can check in and just walk to everything *** FREE WiFi / Internet is available to all guests. We are directly opposite the Tweed Heads Bowls Club, closest motel accommodation to Tweed Heads Hospital, close to Twin Town’s Club, close to Tenpin Bowling, close to Tweed Day Surgery, close to the Civic and Cultural Centre, close to the library, close to Cooly Hotel and also very close to Tweed Centro Shopping Centre - they are all only a short walk away. We are also within walking distance to some of the world’s best beaches, namely, Kirra, Coolangatta, Greenmount, Rainbow Bay, Snapper Rocks and Duranbah just to name a few. A short walk to the Tweed River and you’ll discover just some of the beauty this region has to offer, an excellent pathway follows the river. Heading left it will take you through to Jack Evan’s Harbour and around to Twin Town’s Clubs, it will then take you along the breathtaking coastline, overlooking our magnificent beaches from Point Danger Lighthouse and lookout. Head right at the pathway and you’ll discover secluded beaches, parks and the Tweed Marina and Harbour. Hungry Jack’s, Thai, Chinese, pizza and cheesecake shop are all a 2 min walk away on the very next block. We are centrally located for business, pleasure, relaxing, entertainment and health care. A short 5 min drive from Gold Coast Airport/Coolangatta Airport. We are barely 5 mins off the h’way. Only 35 minutes from Gold Coast’s theme parks. Close enough for enjoyment, yet far enough away to be quiet and relaxing.

Well, this motel is definitely in need of refurbishment. In fairness, we only booked it because of its close proximity to Twin towns, where we were going to a show and therefore we only needed a room with a bed for the night. The whole area was heavily booked due to a beach

Location is very convenient as situated close to the main beach and Snapper Rocks. It also makes for a brilliant stop off travelling along the Gould Coast. Staff also could not do any more to make our stay amazing. Even checking-in was a breeze; definitely recommend

My partner and I stayed here 1 night before flying out from the GC airport, it’s clean and tidy, comfortable bed and walkable to entertainment and meals, we didn’t have any needs or requirements so we weren’t disappointed.

"Upstairs may be best option, just a shame people smoke downstairs as it wafts upward."
"Go somewhere else."
"I like ground floor rooms but the upstairs rooms would probably get more sea breeze"
