Very impressed with their friendliness and facilities. We had to change our stay dates and it was done with no issues. Room was very clean, refreshed daily. Had a meal cooked for us at the last minute and was delivered with a big smile.

The small family run motel is quiet, convenient, clean, has its own coin operated laundry, had a private outdoor area and a fridge that was a bit bigger than a bar fridge which was a plus for us with the 'extras' needed...

We spent two nights here on a very rainy weekend and it was perfectly adequate. The motel is an old styled block brick wall type so it was cold when we entered, but they had air conditioning and that was soon sorted. There was plenty of room, three beds including one queen, a fridge, microwave and even tea towels, plates... More

Staff were very obliging and helpful. Central location if you have a car as business hub and food venues a short drive from motel. Quiet... More

I have now stayed here a few times all as part of business trips. It is so convenient when in Hervey Bay one day and heading north the next.
