This is the best-quality motel I've stayed in, from the linen to the lovely modern bathroom. It's on the city's main road and is very close to the CBD (as well as two supermarkets and a petrol station), but I didn't hear any traffic noise. Most of the units surround a grass lawn with a children's playground and a washing...

Bathroom had a terrible smell, and we think flies were coming up through drains as we had all windows closed the whole time. People were partying outside until well after 10pm, very noisy, and they even set off fireworks. We felt a bit unsafe. Glass doors and windows were dirty. Would not recommend.

Spacious and pleasant enough room for the price, very clean, good linen and towels, nice pool. No aircon, but a decent fan. Handy to town. A block away is Morell's artisan bakery for excellent morning coffee and pastries. Will stay again when back in Gizzy.

Having arrived on a rainy day after a long drive it was good to, once again, be welcomed by Stu and relax in a comfortable clean room for a good nights sleep to recharge.

Stayed just the one night with work but would have liked to stay longer. When you first walk in you think its a bit dated but that's the only negative. I stay in motels 3 weeks out of 4 with work and I wish they put me places like this more often. The room was clean, spacious, good size dining...

A bit of an older type motel with dated rooms but clean and tidy and spacious all the same. Great swimming pool and a small kids play area. Pricing is good. Handy to town just a short walk. Beaches just a short drive also.
