Restaurant was delicious with a good menu and bar. Room was clean and comfortable on a single level with ample car parking. Staff both at reception and the restaurant very friendly and helpful. Conveniently close to a large shopping centre which is within walking distance

My family stayed here and we're very satisfied, consequently we organised a family party of 15 diners at the restaurant on one night. Not one of us was disappointed with our meals, which were generous, tasty and very well priced. The wait staff were excellent and very accommodating to all our needs. The desserts were soooo divine that nearly everyone... More

The lady on reception was very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were clean, and the bed was firm enough. Not overly modern, but very good value for the money. Would stay here again, next time I am in the area.

The motel is a short drive from town centre and is well located being close to Forster Keys, across from the Stockland Shopping Centre and a 5 minute walk to the Lakeside Tavern (live entertainment on a Saturday night can make for difficult sleep). Our room was... More

Spacious room and bathroom. Room 10 faces toward the lawn and bush at the rear - very nice for tea time. It will be shame if the developer closes that all off. One negative - a little stuffy in the room when all closed up.
