This is a cheap, basic motel with traditional drive up parking. It's located close to the centre of town which was really convenient for us however it was really noisy. The road noise wasn't much of a problem but the walls between rooms seemed to be very thin and we could hear conversations taking place in other rooms. Our only...

Stopped here as a last minute booking on our trip south, the reception staff was very welcoming and helpful, even recommending an excellent restaurant in Ulladulla of which we patronised and thoroughly enjoyed. The rooms at the hotel are clean, tidy, warm and cosy, large enough for a couple and contain everything you need inc a microwave, toaster etc. The...

Stayed overnight with the family. Located a short walk to the city centre, but there is a hill to walk home. Clean and tidy rooms that are well noise proofed from the highway. TV with DVD player and digital channels was a bonus. Hard bed, in the family room would be my only downer. Allocated parking for your room and...

Stayed here just for one night after leaving Sydney and prior to our Great Ocean Road Drive. The owner Cathy was very friendly and provided us with the necessary area information ie. location and recommendations of restaurants etc. The room was a really good size as was the bathroom. Good size fridge and microwave were also provided. Plenty of parking...

For a reasonable price, this is a clean and well-maintained 'no-frills' motel close to the centre of town. The staff are friendly and I have no complaints. If you want a relatively cheap night or two away in Ulladulla this place will do perfectly fine.

We stayed for one night at the Sandpiper, and we were pleasantly surprised. The motel itself looks a little bit dated, but it's a great place, the rooms are clean and the bed comfortable, and fantastic value for holiday season. The motel is in a very handy location and is within walking distance of the township. What stood out however...

As former locals returning to Ulladulla for a wedding, we were simply looking for somewhere literally just to sleep for the night. The Sandpiper Motel was exactly what we needed, and really affordable. Most other places to stay in Mollymook and Ulladulla were ridiculously overpriced or completely run down. We felt very welcome on checking in, and the room (although...

HI BJ216, Thank you for taking the time to review and rate the Sandpiper. As you discovered although we are in Ulladulla we are only a few hundred metres to Mollymook on one side and Ulladulla Harbour on the other. Our central location, great reviews and reasonable price have increased our popularity and we are quite a busy establishment these...

Stayed overnight to play golf at the Mollymook Hilltop course. The room was very clean, location central and the staff very friendly. Check in was quick and staff were very helpful in suggesting places for dinner in the local area. Price was very reasonable and I would stay here again for any future visits to Ulladulla.
