“Absolute rubbish”
Reviewed 3 March 2007

Checked out this motel in the accomodation guides and the internet for a family holiday in January this year. We were looking for a 4+ star accomodation with a swimming pool for the kids.
The unit we booked was a two bedroom upstarirs/downstairs family unit with full cooking facilities and spa pool.
When we arrived in January 2007 we found the unit to be still stuck in the 70s. The ceiling was low and claustrophobic, the facilities were old and very worn, the walls were in need of at least a good paint. The kitchen facilities were in bad condition and the bathroom was full of pink 70s decor.
Ended up looking for another motel and making up a story to leave before we unpacked.
I believe that they are in the process of renovating but obviously they hadnt got to our unit yet. This was supposed to be a 4 star facility and this was reflected in the price.
Will never stay here again

Reviewed 1 November 2006

Stayed here with extended family members (10 in total) for a total of 4 nights. The reception staff are friendly, and will accommodate you if you have any special requests. The rooms are spacious and clean, and are above average in presentation. Their is an outdoor pool which is heated all year round, as well as spa units. My one gripe though was that we paid extra for a spa unit, but the spa itself was cold. By the time it heated up, it had turned off due to an automatic shutdown at 10pm. Their are guest spa pools available, but because this was the school holidays, you can imagine how full they were. Overall though, the place itself has a wonderful family feel about it, and the receptionist will bend over backwards to make you feel at home.
