Great location a walk to everything. Executive room was a good size for family of 4 with comfortable beds and a lovely view of the water. The hotel itself is in desperate need of repair/renovation. The bbq's are unfortunately inside the pool area which is not great for families with very small children that can't swim - the bbq's looked...

They are charging $129 for a room but you can get a room in a nice modern resort nearby for that. The room we had was said to be "Lakeview" but you can only see a small part of the lake from the balcony. Due to the fact that they are developing the site apparently soon, they are letting it...

Wonderful spot. The view from our balcony was excellent. The sheets were clean and the bed comfortable. Unfortunately, there are not many other positives. The staff were not very friendly, the bath was badly stained, hooks fallen off the wall, fridge cupboard badly in need of repair - or replacing, carpets stained, and no breakfasts available. Internet was only available...

No restaurant it had closed down bathroom needed renovations but at least seemed clean, beds were comfortable sheets also seemed clean. Rooms were on an...

This motel is in a fabulous position on the water and 2 minutes from all the beach and shopping amenities, however, it is in a very poor condition. The carpets are badly stained, the bath tub was either dirty or stained, and each bed only had a thin doona with no warmth in it and there were no spare bed...

This motel is disgraceful and the owners should be ashamed. It is tired, run down and in need of repair. Simple things such as cleaning around the outside, the BBQ's which they brag about where filthy. No tissues were supplied....what is that about! Room was clean, but tatty, patched, carpet needs replacing. The so called WiFi was non existent, try...

This place is a bit run down and could use a great pressure clean on the outside with a bit of TLC it would be lovely. The room was clean and the place it self is very close to everything with great views. The restaurant in the place is closed and it looks OK so with a bit of effort...
