Very cool set up, with a retro feel, we stayed one night when we missed our flight to Melbourne. Dianne came and collected us from the airport as we were stranded, very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. 2 minutes walk to the beach.

Next to the beach, close to the airport and very cool. Lovely motel with owners who obviously care about what they're doing. A short walk from the local surf club and an uncrowded section of the beach. Good value, but remember this is a motel not a swanky hotel.

Stayed one night before flying out from Gold Coast airport. Fabulous, friendly owners. Great location. Just 10 minutes walk to the airport. Super clean and comfy. Book directly online to receive free traveller breakfast. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

First and foremost what an absolute incredible experience spending 10 days with such incredible hosts! We booked the upstairs apartment and it was perfect, we really got a sense of excitement when walking through for the first time. It had everything we could have possibly imagined as well as privacy! The owners who we became close with over the 10... More

Stayed 2 nights on a weekend. It is very handy to the beach and bikes are available for free to ride along the beachside track. A very nice touch. Room was very clean and cosy and staff excellent. I would definitely recommend and I think we will be going back one day.

Beautifully restored without losing its charm. We stayed one night in a studio room (closest to the highway) and weren't disturbed by traffic noise. The room was spacious, bright and spotlessly clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast basket was great and the mini bar was well stocked/priced too. Most importantly - the water pressure in the shower... More

Coming from Brisbane and catching morning flight from Gold Coast you need to stay overnight and this is best option. Very comfortable and friendly service with everything provided in room. But recommend room back from road. Being driven to airport was nice bonus.

Dianne and John provide clean bright and convenient accommodation and they are so so courteous - even provide a free airport shuttle service for guests. Bed is comfortable and proximity to beach means your early morning walk - if you're not flying out at 6am - is glorious. Would d finitely recommend them and stay again.

This is a belated review, time constraints had unfortunately not given me a chance to do this earlier. The experience was superb. The motel is wonderful decorated, the beach house motif is very welcoming. Parking is a bit on the sparse side though, limited to driveways shared between multiple rooms. Room were well furnished, the décor complimenting the overall look... More
