This is a very nice and clean hotel the staff are very friendly, the room is up there with Sydney beach 4 & 5 star hotels. Extremely comfortable and spacious, I will most certainly visit here again. It's very central to much of the bay and the views are lovely.

Awesome location. Recently renovated and turned out really nice. Room service breakfast was unreal. Bay view room was great to wake up to and a great spot for a walk. No dramas with late checkout and plenty of places for lunch and dinner

This motel is located right on the waters edge, with beautiful views of everything going on on the water. We had a spa room which was spacious and very clean. The position of this motel is very central to everything in the bay.

This is in the best position for getting around on foot to all the shopping and restaurants that are available. Underground security parking lot for our motorcycles was a big plus.
