Nice and clean hotel with partial views over the harbour. Just a bit dated.

Book the ocean views room. Great outlook. This motel is very reasonably priced and ok the interior is a bit dated but it's clean and the view is brilliant from the ocean views rooms and the location is great. I have already booked my next long weekend here.

This is a very well kept no-frills motel. We just needed a stop over place so I didn't look for anything fancy — and I didn't expect any bells and whistles here. However, the building itself is quite a lovely set up — with the centre of the motel open with a tropical garden with tables and chairs in the middle, and a lovely shell water fountain. The other surprising thing was the restaurant. We saw photos promoting the food placed inside the elevator — and to be honest, they looked so good I thought they were stock photos. Shame on me! The restaurant is not only lovely itself, but the food is great! We really enjoyed our short stay here — I highly recommend this place.

The room was small and dingy. After all the rain it smelled like urine. We waited 45minfor our coffee and never did get breakfast! The waitstaff were under staffed and didn't really care. The housekeeping staff were great. If it hadn't been for the harbour view I would have left after 1st nite

3/5.0

Pros : Very good restaurant. Wonderful staff all around. Good location within short walk to the beach and playground for children as well as cafés, restaurants and into town for other dinning options. Clean fresh sheets. Cons : Worn out rooms and facilities. Noisy traffic on the road (would apply for any resort along the beach I imagine). Parking is under supplied as the combined restaurant and guest totals mean you may end up parking a block or two over out on the street. Being a motel ones expectations should naturally be lower than that of a hotel. The being said the friendly and helpful staff take care of the motel compensate for the locations short commings. I requested and was given an ocean facing room with the hope of being able to hear the ocean at night however it is not possible due to the location being closer to the harbour bay (hence the name) which shelters it from the waves. This is a personal reflection and not an issue with anything the motel claimed to offer. However should you be like myself and enjoy going to sleep to the sound of the ocean you will be disappointed. Our room only had one towel in the bathroom when we arrived and we simply had to let them know at the desk and it was corrected immediately and then housekeeping staff came by again later with another set just to be sure. The restaurant has excellent deserts that I ordered and took back to my room for the family however we did not eat a meal there though the menu does look very good.

The room was only half done on check in. One clean towel, used soap in the shower and dirty glass in the sink. Room was old. Service was ok and the restaurant offered good food. Location was great. Not great value for money during peak season.

View was lovely from one of our rooms. Check in time was 1pm. We arrived at approximately 3pm to find our rooms dirty and not made up. Management were full of excuses about a staff member calling in sick, but no apologies or advised our rooms were not ready. Huge communication issue between reception and the house keeping staff. We were not the only rooms not ready there were at least 3 others on our floor of about 10 rooms.

This is a great little Motel. Our room was 306 and it is on top floor with outstanding views of the harbour. It is value for your money. Yes its a little outdated and could do with a lick of paint and new aircon but its still really good considering its position. We will be going back.

This hotel was ok, decor is very dated but it is located close to the water. Free parking and Wi-Fi, which was good quality Wi-Fi. Rooms have microwave, kettle, toasted and sink. Air conditioning units are in the room, a little noisy and very old so you have to control the temperature by turning it in and off. Each room has a balcony.

Good affordable accomodation. If you don't need the latest luxuries then this is a great place. Comfortable and clean rooms, very close to the waterfront and the cbd, friendly staff, late checkout no problems. Would return.

Staff, especially one receptionist, is not friendly and rude over the telephone. I called on Thursday 29 December 2016 asking when is the best day to cancel (my father was admitted to hospital), she said before 48 hours, SHE DID NOT MENTION ANYTHING ABOUT PAYMENT. Then, I called on Saturday 31 December 2016 to cancel, because my was admitted to hospital, she said, you have to pay for one night. I was trying to explain to her, but she was so rude, saying, I have people in front of the desk, you have to decide and you have to be quick. I had to say yes, we're coming over for 1 night, thinking since we are paying. Mind you we had to pay $185. 00 for 1 night (no breakfast, just for the room). THAT IS THE BIGGEST RIP OFF, because when I called the first time, she did not say anything about payment and said THERE ARE ALOT OF PEOPLE ARE QUEUED UP. this is absolutely wrong and there is no compassion anymore, no understanding. I am pissed off, because she changed the story and made us pay for something, we shouldn't have. The funny part was when we checked in; another receptionist dealt with us and said you are here for 7 nights. I was really surprised and upset, after all that; the other receptionist did not even have the decency to cancel the booking. WHAT SORT OF WORK ETHICS IS THIS? This is NOT right and should've never happened.

Although the rooms are kinda outdated, they are clean and all the staff are very friendly. The restaurant has a great breakfast also. Good value accommodation.

3/5.0

Rooms are clean & beds comfortable but there are absolutely NO disabled facilitis, not even a parking space. Isn't this a form of discrimination? Towel hooks over bathroom doors were too high to reach, unless you are very tall & fully able, towels were folded & left on window ledge behind the toilet so hard to reach. Cleaners left large laundry bags at lift door & one had fallen across lift door, which made manouvering a 91 yr old with a walker very difficult when leaving. Views & location were excellent. Smoking allowed on balconies which meant smoke wafted from adjoining rooms. Surely one room could be updated with shower bars & a ramp could be provided at the entrance were a step is very disepective for visually impaired guests.

Friendly helpful staff. Perfect location, outlook from balcony across small park to the boat harbour is just beautiful. Restaurant has the loveliest outlook to boat harbour and is comfortable and cosy. Rooms are clean & tastefully decorated. Could easily stay here for much longer than just a night. Balconies are small but perfect for soaking in the view with a glass of wine. Not fancy but for the price and location a definite winner.

The restaurant is tired and needs a facelift and so does the menu. The food is just not fresh enough and failed to inspire us.
