Stayed there as a group of 5. Excellent communication and help us out when we were in a jam. Clean rooms, great pool, excellent service. Highly recommend. Close to the main area along the Port. Free wifi.

This is my second stay at this place due to its location being near Garden Village retirement home. I had forgotten how bad the car parking situation is. There insufficient spaces for all units and also the situation that you could be parked in by other vehicles and unable to leave in the morning. A lot of the under building... More

It's rare to find a motel that will accept a dog to stay in the room with you so we were very happy to find this hotel for a rainy overnight stay. They were welcoming and very easy going. The rooms are old but comfortable. The mattress was the only real issue with a roll in middle.

Whether you're travelling with a pet or not the Koala Tree is a very nicely updated and well maintained motel. Bright paint, clean modern bedding and towels, and polished wooden floors make it a big step up from how we remember dog-friendly accommodation when we last travelled with the terrier twins. Thanks for providing such a top spot to stop.

Great service and sized room but Venetian blinds over bed was broken so people could see in over bed, dust everywhere on walls and ledges and a number of daddy long legs above head. Convenient location but took a while to find the entrance off main road.

We also had a trailer, but parking was no problem. Had a great night sleep, despite being close to main road , it was very quiet.would highly recommend this cute, retro style motel,... More

Calling in late for a room I wondered wether I was revisiting the fifties when I arrived but reception was efficient and the room was very pleasantly renovated and furnished as well as being equipped with modern appliances. You don't many Motels with polished floor boards these days but it all adds up to a nice change from stark brick... More
