An absolute pleasure to stay here. Rooms are clean and immaculate, in fact they sparkle. Swimming pool is fantastic along with beautiful BBQ area and lovely gardens. Staff are very professional and helpful. It really is the best place to stay in this area, with the Boathouse being the worst.

Nice location adjacent to the river, an easy walk to the shops, a bit further to the ocean. We booked a standard twin room, which was recently renovated, spotlessly clean, and nicely decorated. The big bonus was the small kitchenette with plates and cutlery, a microwave, fridge and toaster. For dinner we were able to cook a nice steak on... More

We only stayed one night but everything was clean and fresh. The lovely furnishings made it feel like a hotel. A short walk to the river, ferry wharf and shops, a slightly longer one to the beach. Highly recommended.

Took a short family holiday and found this gem. The motel is clean and the staff are extremely friendly. Great value. Easy walk to the beach or even Tea Gardens. Close to shops and amenities. We will be back.

Clean and friendly. Exceptional value. Very handy to river and bridge. Easy walk to Tea Gardens or surf beach. Have stayed here several times and we'll be back. Great to find such a well run place at a reasonable price.

A country-style motel that is not typical … this one’s been tastefully renovated and the rooms have a small kitchenette, a generous sized fridge (big enough to fit a bottle of Champagne in the freezer section), a flat panel TV (at a height that is just right to watch whilst in bed), a firm but comfortable mattress, and a new...

Comfy beds, great pool, friendly staff, BBQ area with undercover dining by the pool. Rooms are tidy and have everything you need to have a stress free stay. Great for families close to the picturesque river, nice quiet location.
