I had a wonderful sleep, the bed was really comfy and the room was peaceful. Also the guy I spoke with both on the phone...

The room was clean, bed was very pleasant to sleep on, it was so large that during the night thought I would have to send SES to find my wife.

Even worse, it was a known problem. Someone had tried to cover the smell with a chemical air freshener (which added to the problem). As soon as I called down to reception to say the carpet was wet and there was a terrible smell, the receptionist knew what the problem was. The air conditioner was leaking and the fluid had...

We stayed here for work. There was a huge amount of bookings and requests and Kathy handled it like a total pro! The place itself is clean, light and airy and the rooms are a great size. Great service and great little spot!

It's a fantastic property for the price I paid. Due to my flight issues, I first cancelled my booking & Samuel was kind enough to cancel it without a charge. Hence when the flight issue was sorted, I re-booked to an upgraded room type & once again Samuel offered a free upgrade. Clean & well located motel with all necessary...

My partner surprised me with a weekend away for my birthday recently. He didn't book and everything was booked out. We managed to get a place at Peninsula Nelson Bay that slept 9 people. It was a shock at first as it was like stepping back into the 50's. But it was clean and comfortable... you had to go across...
