It seems to be as expected for the price.The resident dog barked for hours until finally got a hold of the owner (who doesnt live on site, now I know why) after midnight. Will not be back. Visited in 2015 and just read a recent review where someone else had the barking dog too. So the problem persists.

Affordable overnight stop. Excellent views from the room. Rooms OK for the price. Had our meal in the restaurant and found it very good. Only just made it back to our room and they turned out the lights. This place is for sale and with little effort it could be tidied up around the motel.

Handy to Scamanda shops. Beach is directly across the road approx. 150 metre walk. Older motel with hospitable hostess, Bronwyn. Evening meals were large and clean at a reasonable price. Daily meal specials at $10. ideal to call in, stay over, 'wine and dine'.... Motel price very reasonable. Do not expect to much.

Went on $15 schnitzel night and got a huge lovely meal. A good selection of Tasmanian wines at reasonable prices. Not a gourmet dinner but overall a good experience. Staff lovely too and good views of the sea. If your in the area don't miss it.------------------

Quality food, lots of it, and outstanding value; you really can't beat the Surfside. Sure the decor might be a bit dated but with such great staff, tasty food and a lovely open fire; who cares? My absolute favourite is the Sicilian Schnitzel (I keep going back and just can't go past it), but vegan/special requests are accommodated with a...

Surfside's new chef has certainly taken the meals to a new level. Enjoyed every mouthful. Our table enjoyed seafood chowder, duck spring rolls, burgers and Thai coconut chicken. The decor of the hotel might be outdated, but if you can look past that and go there just for the food you will be pleasantly surprised! Can't wait to go again....

Stayed overnight February 2015. Hey, it's not five star, at the price what can one expect. It was clean, tidy and the bed was comfortable. Given the location, the beach, the excellent meals a five star place would be costing 300/400 dollars a night so at the price it's a steal. So if you are looking for location, meals, a...

We had a great time here. Sure it's not as modern as other places, but it is clean and the staff are exceptionally friendly with great value meals on offer. We were gobsmacked when one of the staff found $50 on the floor and put it over the bar when no-one claimed it - amazingly honest! Can't fault it.
