This motel is excellent value for money. It is very conveniently located, a short walk to shops and directly opposite Tweed Heads Bowling Club. The owners were very friendly and helpful - most welcoming. It is an older style motel and the room we stayed in was not overly large, but was well decorated, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It...

Very small. I wouldn't go back with a family. Had to stand on chair to turn air con on and off. Manager was nice and friendly though. Good location, walking distance to Coolangatta. Wasn't as cheap as it should be.
