We were very pleased to find this great little Motel hosted by the very friendly and helpful Robyn. Extra care has been taken to make it a cut above your average Motel. Only 5 units so it's always quiet and peaceful. Rooms tastefully decorated. Great location right at the gateway to Innes National Park and the convenience of the Tavern... More

This place is just so great. It is simple, stylish++, comfortable and run by a really friendly lady named Robin. It's right next door to the Tavern serving a great evening meal but is shielded from the noise making for a restful stay. It is the perfect place from which to travel into Innes National Park.

The Motel is very comfortable with clean rooms nicely painted and decorated. The bed was on the smaller side and more a double bed than a queen size which was a tad small for 2 large adults. The bathroom was nicely outfitted and functional. The many "post it" notes listed throughout the room about various things you can or cannot... More

We've stayed here quite a few times & love it. We like the spacious, modern bathroom and room, love the selection of Foxtel channels (includes several movie choices), beds are comfortable & service is always friendly. The location is central but still quiet. You can walk to the tavern, general store & coffee shop. As mentioned in other reviews Georges... More

Great food, service and location. Nice wood oven pizza and the seafood basket. Definitely worth the drive. Great view. I do recommend it for your next fishing family trip when you traveling at York Peninsiula especially on the way to Innes National Park.

Whilst this review is a recommendation for the Marion Bay Tavern, the Motel is adjacent & both businesses compliment each other. Offering delicious meals including an extensive menu & all day wood oven pizzas. The Tavern is open every day for lunch & dinner. Reservations are highly recommended & can be made by calling 88544141. Thanks again for your review. More

We only stayed one night at Marion Bay, and found the motel to be most adequate. It is very new, and rooms are clean and comfortable, and despite the motel being next to the tavern car park, it was very, very quite at night, and we had a good sleep. Only issue was that is was a conventional double bed,... More
