I cannot understand how anyone can write a positive review of this place. It has such great potential but it's squandered with poor cleaning, poor finish, 'tired' fittings and - most of all - totally uncaring staff. The Wi-fi doesn't work. Call reception on Saturday...More

Such a great place! Friendly staff, large rooms, walking distance to the best bars and beaches in Coolangatta, inexpensive, full kitchenette with micro, sink, fridge for your beers, dishes etc., and a table, chairs, lazy boys, making it perfect for company.

"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 More 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. Less
