“Perfect for the budget conscious”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

My husband and I traveled to Batemans Bay last week, mainly to visit nearby Mogo Zoo. We chose this motel based on it's excellent reviews and the reasonable price compared to other motels in the area. We chose to stay in a standard room but they also have deluxe rooms if you want to spend a little more. Our room contained all the essentials - a queen size bed, air conditioner, TV with free foxtel, fridge, toaster and tea and coffee making supplies and a lovely hot shower! The rooms are nothing flash but they are very neat and clean. The man who checked us in was very friendly and welcoming and even offered us free wifi. The motel is right opposite the water and it was just a 5 minute stroll to the Soldier's Club where we had an excellent Chinese meal (they also have a bistro with steaks, chicken and seafood if you prefer).All in all we had a great stay in the Bay and would certainly stay in this motel again.

This was my first stay in a motel. Though I was not expecting much but the motel turned out to be good experience with decent size rooms and were certainly clean. It is located on the main road and all the places of interest are close by (except Mogo attractions) they are further 15 kms away from all the hotels in this region. Nothing much to say about it except good location and clean room, but for the price charged certainly an overkill. Definitely not worth the penny would have given it a 4 star, if the price was $80-$90. But I ended up paying $120/night, which is certainly not worth, and you can find better places around.

Again, the only drawback is the price in this place else it is a decent property to stay.

Location: 4/5
Motel: 3/5
Food: N/A
Rooms: 3.5/5
VFM (value for Money) - Not at $120/night. Should have been between $80-$90

Loved it here
The owners were so obliging couldn't do enough
Great location easy walking to everywhere we wanted to go.
It was only an overnight stay but next time would stay longer
Very clean and comfortable.
We plan on staying there next time we go this way.

Operators are friendly and welcoming. Rooms are spacious, clean, and all the necessary amenities for a budget stay. Great location opposite water with great walking path and lots to see. Would have loved to stay longer but had plans to move on. Will stay here again. -- Nikki, USA

We stayed for one night in an upstairs deluxe room that was spacious, clean and comfortable with a queen bed, single bed, tea and coffee making facilites, fridge, and a balcony from which you could see the river.

We did not feel like going into town for dinner, and unfortunately the restaurant next door was closed for the night, so we ordered takeaway pizza which was delivered to our motel.

There are plenty of places to stay in Bateman's Bay, but we loved this smaller complex that was clean and quiet, and the man on reception was very friendly.

Room Tip: Upstairs deluxe room at the back of the complex have outside balconies you can view the river from.

We chanced upon this motel having decided to stop overnight at Batemans Bay and were impressed by the friendly welcome we received from the owner. The accommodation was clean and pleasant and the beds were very comfortable. We would have been happy to have stayed for longer - but our plans meant we had to press on the following morning.

Room Tip: Ask the owner - he is very helpful

Service was EXCELLENT, nothing was too much effort for the owners. Large comfortable room. Location perfect, short flat walk along path beside the water into the town, suitable for strollers or the elderly. Highly recommend for families, couples or singles. Great fishing across the road.
