For a small town motel, this place is really well equipped and the management really helpful. The room had everything we needed and more, with an outlook over the marina. Its nice and quiet yet central to all facilities

We stayed for 2 nights in the spa suite, our generous hosts provided us this room instead of the standard suite as we had been cycling and arrived late. The spa was a complete surprise and very welcome. We have rebooked for February and will be accompanied by an elderly relative, so we have selected a suite that has an...

The room was large with a seating area, and an outside patio deck with great waterfront views. The room was decorated to a high standard including the bathroom. The location is good being only 5 minutes walk to local shops and restaurants,and even closer to the Raymond Island ferry, which is a must do to see koalas in the wild....

Great location. Easy to find. We had a boat and they offer a jetty so you don't have to go back and forth to the boat ramp when staying a couple of nights this is handy. Only bad thing was parking - they don't really cater for parking with a boat trailer. BBQ area was clean and very easy to...

Our apartment here was wonderful, very modern and clean, well-furnished with a fully-equipped kitchenette. I loved the upstairs bedroom, which had an even nicer view of the harbour than the ground floor (with a private patio). Definitely recommend this as the place to stay in Paynesville, where you will want to go in order to see koalas. It's very convenient...

Perfect location - close enough to everything you need so you don't need to drive. Across the road to the ferry, waling distance to shops, eateries, parks and the foreshore. The apartment was well laid out, clean and tidy and was well-equipped. Property managers are lovely and helpful.

Stayed in the motel accommodation. Staff friendly and helpful even though we were late arriving. Rooms very clean, spacious and comfortable. Out door setting on patio overlooking one of the canals. Clean bbqs for all to use. 2 min walk to shops, cafes and restaurants. No need to use your car if you are happy just to mooch around town....

We stayed 8 nights and used the car once! A 2 minute walk to shops and the ferry,30 seconds to the water and yet so peaceful. Our apartment had fabulous water/boat views from the lounge/kitchen and even the upstairs bedroom. Very accommodating hosts; well appointed kitchen - small but workable; excellent value for money. Will return!

Its a very nice Motel with a friendly Staff gave us such a warm welcome feeling at their property. The Room was bigger as we expected, very clean and direct beside the Marina. You can choise coming by Boat from Pier side, or from Road side by car.
