    Clean, Fresh rooms. the layout of our twin was great (bathroom between beds). All amenities clean and tidy. Fantastic staff really enjoyed our stay and will be back - ALOT! oh and walking distance to tavern with live music on Saturday nights.

    The lady on reception was very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were clean, and the bed was firm enough. Not overly modern, but very good value for the money. Would stay here again, next time I am in the area.

    I always stay at the Island Palms when I travel for work, have done so three times this year and will always return. Plenty of space in the rooms, rooms are always very clean, room service food is fantastic, staff are friendly, absolutely no negatives!

    We stayed for one night in mid November whilst attending a sporting regatta. The motel is a short drive from town centre and is well located being close to Forster Keys, across from the Stockland Shopping Centre and a 5 minute walk to the Lakeside...More

    Spacious room and bathroom. Room 10 faces toward the lawn and bush at the rear - very nice for tea time. It will be shame if the developer closes that all off. One negative - a little stuffy in the room when all closed up.
