Amazing views from the second floor. Highly recommended getting one on the second floor or above for the views (YOU CAN SEE THE OCEAN!). Few downfalls; shower pressure isn't great, hot water isn't overly hot and runs out quickly, can hear other guests easily (thin walls?). Receptionist was very helpful.

We stayed with the family a few days last week in 2 rooms with the family to get away and bond. A motel is perfect for a family with kids because you can come and go as you please and just be relaxed about it. The area is really nice, the air is so fresh! The owners were helpful (yet...

Absolutely loved our two day stay recently. The outside of the motel is very dated but the reception was good and very helpful and friendly. The room was pleasant but dated and the bathroom adequate but very clean. The bed was too hard for my liking but my husband loved it. But all this faded into oblivion when you walked...

Stayed last saturday night to attend a friend's wedding on Tamborine Mountain. Shopped around for the best price and found this place to be by far the most reasonably priced. Friendly and welcoming reception staff. Our upstairs room was very clean and the bed was super comfortable. The view from the balcony and the free wi-fi were bonuses we did...

I stayed there for 5 nights and days (before/after last weekend) and I had a great time! No troubles + no hassles = too easy! The weather was fine - (and better than Sydney from whence I came). The room was the right size (not too big or too small), very good internal facilities and great air conditioning/heat (just need...

I was impressed with the cleanliness of the room. Nice little place to sit on the veranda. All the usual tea, coffee, milk etc. Good value and you are able to stay for one night. I would recommend it and would stay again.

Stayed here Saturday 21st May I would have to say it's the worse place that we have ever stayed. Requested a first floor room in booking but got a ground floor room due to the fact they didn't read my booking properly. On arrival in our room we got a disgusting smell of damp and room was very cold looking...

Hubby and I found the motel very handy as it was in walking distance to the wedding venue. It was very clean and comfortable and we were very happy with our choice of a lower level unit. We had access to a lovely area outside which gave us fantastic views. We booked an over night stay on a long weekend...
