“Excellent property”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

We stayed three nights on the ground floor; the room was very clean and spacious, parking was a bit of a lottery, outdoor area v.g.,staff very obliging. Liked the locality to the city centre and near by restaurants. In particular the Thai Hutt.

We stayed here for 3 nights in early September. The owner was very helpful and offered to show us a couple of different rooms so we could see the differences and make a more-informed choice. The room itself was perfect: balcony, small kitchen, sitting area, etc. The owner also recommended local-area attractions, restaurants, and things to do. Very kind.
Would definitely recommend.

We recently stayed in a 2 bedroom unit, which was spacious and well equipped. The location is great.
Guest parking is very tight and difficult, but at least vehicles are off the road.
Unfortunately the hairdryer did not work. Also the cleanliness of the bedding needs to be addressed.
The Manager on check out although very friendly was more interested in discussing on the phone, whether he would grant a potential housekeeper an interview. I had to wait.

We've booked Edgewater for two nights and ended staying three. We stayed in a spa room and it was very good, a lot of space, good kitchen with all appliances, good bathroom, guest laundry. They could have a better exhausting system . It's beachfront, very near everywhere in the city. They have room service everyday - although because we usually wake up around 10, we're always woke up by them, The only down was the free wifi they offer - it was very unreliable, in 3 days it only worked one night. During the morning it was also coming and going out, so if you really need internet is better bringing your 3G. It's a nice place to stay, quiet, nice staff - we recommend it.

Great location, beautiful views, fully equipped kitchen. We had a two floor unit No 21 with 3 singles and a bathroom upstairs with a queen bed in the bedroom downstairs. Living area was spacious with a full dining table that seated 6. Despite being right on the road it was quiet enough for a great sleep. Parking was a bit of an issue but returning a little earlier from daytime activities meant you could get the pick of spots. The only fault was our downstairs shower, the water pressure was woeful, the water came out of the shower rose like a greenhouse mist not adjustable and not helpful when you have waist length hair to wash. The motel also had a BBQ and small spa area which would have been pleasant to use had travel itinerary and weather permitted.

Reviewed 3 June 2013

We wanted a motel unit that would accommodate four adults and a 2 year old. We stayed in Unit 21 - a two bedroom motel unit that is on two floors. It had one bedroom downstairs with a double bed and a bedroom upstairs with three single beds and a bathroom on the upper floor also. It was great for us as we were able to have privacy upstairs and our own bedroom whilst our relatives had the bedroom downstairs. It has a fully equiped kitchen, TV and lounge area and a table that seats 6. The balcony has a great view of the beach. It can be a little noisy as it's right on Marine Parade but it quietens down at night time for a good night sleep (although the beds were a little lumpy but I guess it depends what sort of bed you're used to). The motel is in a great location as you can walk across the road to a children's play area (our 2 year old loved it!), the beach and a short walk to the shops/restaurants/aquarium etc. The motel unit was a little run down but very clean and tidy. The only fault I could find was the parking as the car park behind the motel is very small with limited parking spaces. We paid extra for having more than the usual amount of adults and yet we were asked to move one of our cars from the car park. When we explained we had paid extra we were told it would be ok. Other than that it was a lovely stay and we would return.

Hello Becz_Awa.
Thank you for your review and your comments. Because of the fact that you were a after hours late check in. The parking situation could not be explained to you on arrival and we were not to know that you had 2 vehicles. We have 1 park per unit available as off street parking with plenty of on street available to any extras. The reason you were asked to repark was because your 2 cars were taking up 3 spaces. Parking spaces are clearly marked and we do not charge any extra for extra cars.
Regards
Roy
