Arrived from Cape Tribulation and were just looking for one night's stay. Got a standard room which was old, but clean and adequate. Loved the pool and the view from the garden. Good value for money and very friendly staff.

Firstly I requested a budget room. Fair enough but I expected at least hot water? It wasn't even peak. It was 9 pm. Walls a paper thin. Be aware especially when you have backpackers bed hopping or whatever the hell they were doing at 4 am in the morning in the next room. Can't blame the motel for that. Decided...
