Three star motel. Rooms have been renovated and re carpeted. Bathrooms done up. Comfortable beds, swimming pool is okay. Location is great given the price. Walk to the local RSL club for food and drinks.

Absolutely atrocious, last minute pick with the last place to accommodate 7 in the entrance and I can tell you now I'd rather have slept in the car and saved my $1500, spa is meant to be from 4pm-8pm more like 4pm-5pm had to ask for the spa to be heated just to be told it cools and will take...

Stayed here for only one night (thankfully), on arrival the room was small, cramped an out-dated although the bathroom was clean and modern. To my disappointment there was no complimentary biscuits to go with our tea/coffee, the double bed was comfortable however the noise from the hi-way and sirens was hard to ignore. I personally wouldn't stay here again, giving...

Hi! We are in the process of modernizing the property but feel we are comfy, clean and affordable budget 3 star motel. On weekends the traffic can be moderate but usually its quite good-clearly this is hard to predict. We do not have biscuits, conditioners shampoos or body washes as we have found we would rather provide free Wi-Fi, swimming...

Arrived at the motel....had people sitting outside each dingy room drinking & smoking. Tried to be open minded when we got the keys until we opened the door to our room. The bed covers had large stains on them, the room smelt & the air conditioner was falling apart. This is not a place you want to even put your...

Hi! I have spoken to the cleaners and manager on on the day as I found it very difficult to believe that with 3 cleaners on on the day we completely missed cleaning your room. I was informed by management that upon arriving you asked for a refund before even viewing the room. The bed sheets were changed in the...

Rooms were modern and had everything we needed. Plenty of things to keep the kids entertained. Staff were pleasant. Lovely location. Our visit was an overnight stay on our way south but we might have to take a longer family holiday here!

We stayed in this motel for a week, the room was very basic, if you want take out take paper plates and cutlery as there are none provided for you in the rooms. The motel itself is about a ten/fifteen minute walk from the town itself! There's plenty to do from pelican feeding to restaurants and gelato bars. If your...

Good money has been spent on room interiors. Kitchenette, bathroom, carpets, lighting. Nice work. Lots more to do on doors, balconies, exteriors to freshen up the property as a whole. May justify higher prices in a couple of years when fully renovated. Cooked breakfast should be more generous for $15. The cafes at The Entrance have fantastic big breakfasts for...

After booking this Motel I was expecting more after reading other reviews on other sites. The interior may have been partially renovated but it doesn't make up for tiny bathrooms, No electric blankets since it's winter, very old air conditioning units, chairs on the balcony are unstable. Overall after $110 I expect a little more.

Sapphire has recently completed renovations in 90% of the rooms, and is working on completing the rest of renovations and upgrades in due course, as a small business Sapphire aims to put back money into the business as it go along.So there is no set date for "completion" merely ongoing improvements. We really value your feedback as we are aiming...
