“great budget motel”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

Stayed a night. Snug room with everything we needed in it. Clean and comfortable. Excellent value. We arrived on the spur of the moment and the owners were more than helpful with the internet, where to eat and what to see. More features and space and cheaper than some caravan park cabins that we have stayed in. Great for a sleep and a shower. Would definitely stay again if in the area.

The motel is clean and nice. The room was good with a fridge, hot pot and toaster. The location is very good as we could walk along the bay and into town. The staff are not knowledgeable about the area or restaurants.

My husband and I were travelling through Bateman's Bay and stayed only one night here. It was very clean. Staff was helpful and friendly. The bed was comfortable. Good budget accommodation (least expensive of the nearby motels but still high season rates). Easy walking distance of town. T

Very friendly service good value, clean, comfortable, quiet and within easy level walking distance of town and local clubs. We turned up late without a booking and the proprietor could not have been nicer recommending where to eat etc on a quite night in town. Could not fault the place for the value.

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
