It's hard to miss this place when you drive by, because the quaint vintage style just calls out, and certainly struck a cord with us. The office has DVDs available for rental, is decorated in real vintage style, and staffed by one of the friendliest ladies we've met. Exceptionally helpful and happy to show us a room beforehand. The rooms...

We arrived about two hours early and they still checked us into the room straight away, showed us around the room (which also had a complimentary breakfast & free wifi) and also supplied us with FREE bikes to ride down to the shops at Coolangatta! Super friendly people and I couldn't recommend this place more. They even dropped us off...

We stayed 1 night as we were flying out to NZ early the next morning. The motel is nice and close to the airport and they offer free transfers to the airport even at 4.15am. You can walk down the road a short way and find a nice place to eat. The room was comfy, cosy and clean, but the...

The people were very helpful. I rang ahead and she left the key out for me as I was arriving on a late flight. The room was clean, modern and had all you need. It is 100 meters from a beautiful beach and really easy access to the airport. I recommend it.

We had a super early flight out of Gold Coast airport and spent the night here. The bonus is there was a 4:30am ride to the airport. Great service and great comfort - thanks. Room had all the extras needed and the whole establishment has been well renovated in and original style. Really good

We had an early morning flight so stayed here the night prior to flying home. We had an upstairs apartment which blew us away. It was so spacious, clean and well equipped. The big couches were super comfy as were the beds. The recent refurb is very stylish. The free wifi was a bonus. A 1 minute walk to the...

This Motel was a great find to spend Easter. Very roomy, microwave, toaster, coffee machine make this appealing to more than an overnight stay. Very clean and roomy. Even though situated close to busy road and airport we didn't register any noise. Parking could be a bother but shouldn't define your choice. Close to restaurants at Kirra and North Kirra...

Stayed for 1 night and would definitely re-book. Wonderful location - 5 minutes walk to the beach, 10 minutes to Gold Coast airport, 10 minutes to restaurants/shops. Nostalgic exterior but fully renovated with all modern appointments. Loads of character, extremely helpful and pleasant owners, very reasonable rates, airport shuttle service. Thumbs up!!

I was unable to fly home as planned as my son became ill just before our flight. I needed to find accommodation next to the Gold Coast Airport immediately. This place showed up on Google as 5 star guest rating so i called up and booked. Best move I ever made! Annie came and picked us up free of charge....

Lobbed in here for three nights over Easter with a friend. Fantastically located walking distance from Coolangatta airport, or the owners will come and pick you up if you prefer. Don't be put off by how close the airport is; you don't hear any air traffic noise at all. It's located just off the beach (about a 50 meter walk)...
