Reviewed 10 January 2016

We stayed for 3 nights in an upper floor unit. Our unit had a small balcony with table & chairs. The view to the sea is across the Marine Parade road, a playground, car park and children's learner cycling area. An overall good location; its a short walk to the shopping streets and plenty of cafes/restaurants in the nearby area....

This motel offers a great location and view of the sea. The rooms are continually renovated and the staff super friendly. The one thing missing is air-conditioning, although this New Year the weather was so cold I was not an issue. The front sliding doors can be latched slightly open to give a good through draft of sea breeze

Romaxbert, Owner at Edgewater Motor Lodge, responded to this review

Gidday Neil. Thanks for your comments. We are looking into air-conditioning but the amount of noise, 20 outdoor units would make is a bit of an issue. You also forgot to mention that each unit has a new portable fan as well. As you are a regular guest we value your comments and look forward to seeing you again next...

Gidday Jenny. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am a little disappointed with regards to your comments on the Queen bedroom. You must have big cupboards in your house if you can fit a Queen bed in them. With regards to the front door and air-conditioning. You can lock the door back so that there...

Stayed here for 2 nights in a 2nd floor studio unit. Bed was comfortable but the unit would have been a little small for 2 people. It was lovely to watch the sun rise from the balcony and having a kitchenette is always a bonus. 10-15 min walk into town, which was another reason I booked the accommodation. I would...

This motel was the best priced in the area for the night I booked. It was fairly simple, basic room, with all that you need.
