From the amazing receptionist, to the clean, well appointed room, to delicious meals in the licensed restaurant we just couldn't fault this Motel. After 12 hours on the road we couldn't have wished for a better motel.

Dear Kristine H, Thank you so much for your kind words. Chef will also be delighted with your feedback. We have tried to keep our new menu as local as possible and have sourced produce from the Mackay Fish Markets, Freckle Farm, Olive Estate and Cape Grim Grass Fed Beef. So glad you enjoyed! We hope to welcome you back...

Stayed here for 3 nights after Xmas seeing family and was surprised how nice and large the family room was - probably in need of a Reno job but served its purpose to us well. Great pool and easy access to Mt Pleasant and town.

Friendly staff, great facilities and good location. The family room was great value for money, had a well stocked kitchen and was clean and comfortable. The pool was great for the kids to have a swim and whilst we didn't use the BBQ because it was raining it was a great inclusion.

Nice large clean rooms, very helpful guy at reception. Good location for a quick stopover. great pool , spa & outdoor areas. We didn't have time to use tennis courts or other facilities. But it's all there Only thing I could suggest would be to have a toaster in the rooms !

Clean, quiet and comfortable motel. Friendly and accommodating staff. Booking the room was easy and the responses to me email messages was quick. The location was ideal for us as close to Mt Pleasant Shopping centre and various places to eat. The wifi was free and fast.
