Top marks for this motel. Owners could not be more helpful when our booked accommodation was not up to scratch. Facilities in the chalet accommodation were superb quality and the general decor and cleanliness of the highest standards. Recommend the upstairs chalets as most have a view of the bay.

A great place to spend some time on your way or longer. Very clean and cozy rooms. Especially the ones upstairs. We had the first lodge with big window for a perfect view of sunsets. Extremely welcomming staff, helpfull tips for exploring the neighbourhoods. Fully recommend.

Had upstairs accommodation in this immaculately clean lodge. Excellent service, gorgeous outlook, tastefully decorated. Will stay again and have recommended to friends. While in Thames, check out Melbourne cafe and the little Melbourne-like laneway behind.

The water front location was nice but the cabin needs a renovation. There was no hot water mixer tap in the bathroom sink & the single bed was quite hard for a comfortable sleep. Expected better rooms for the price paid.

Picked on spec, this was a find! Warmly welcomed, given the opportunity to look at a couple of units to select the one we preferred, and then being able to gaze out from our deck across the Firth of Thames. Comfortable bed, good facilities, although the bathrooms are in need of an upgrade. We would definitely stay here again.
