“disabled room”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

to my astonishment batemans bay, a town whose main industry is tourism, has an alarming almost total lack of disabled accommodation. however the disabled room at beach drive is fantastic. large and very accessible. the owners are wonderful as is the location.

Room Tip: disabled room great

After just coming from a gorgeous motel at lakes entrance that we only paid $95 for, our expectations of this place were pretty high considering this one we paid $150. Fair to say it was shot down in flames upon opening the door of our room.

At reception owner was friendly and lovely and told us to pop back if we had any problems. Opened our door and the room was old, heaters were old, needed a paint and the curtains were very thin with holes. But everything was CLEAN which was a huge relief. The last place we stayed had a microwave, plates and cutlery and we were a little disappointed in this place when we didn't even have a plate. Were given wifi passwords per device. Took me twenty minutes of trying and still couldn't work it out. Gave up. Maybe should think about making it a bit easier to access.

As i said, owners were lovely, but left feeling disappointed. Quite a lot of money for something that really needs an upgrade. Also, walls seem very thin. Could hear everything in the next room. Noisy kids everywhere, but that's what you get for a budget motel.

Any wi-fi problem should have been reported to Reception as some issues can stem from the Guest's Internet device settings. We are willing to assist when given the opportunity.

Peak rates do apply over Easter and Christmas/New Year Holiday Periods and can also apply for some special events. We have owned the Leasehold business for almost 4 years and have not increased the Peak Rates during this time. Our Peak Rates are very competitive in Batemans Bay and more upmarket Accommodation facilities are available for those seeking more than affordable budget accommodation.

Couldn't speak more highly of the location - a very short walk to the town centre. Conveniently located between the Soldiers and Catalina clubs.
The owner was very friendly and welcoming and we were very grateful for the room upgrade (thanks!).
The downside for us was that we spent much of our four days in Batemans Bay with a tissue and pseudoephedrine within arms reach. The curtains, carpet and bed spread appeared very dusty. I don't recall sneezing so much in my life!
Also we thoroughly enjoyed our early morning walks that became a daily ritual given we were woken up at the crack of dawn each day because of paper thin curtains and light streaming in!

Any problems or issues should be reported to Reception. A four day stay was ample time to discuss any problem face to face as we are approachable people and do our utmost to make all Visitors stays as pleasant as possible.

We wish you well with your allergy problem and recommend not overdoing it with the Pseudoephedrine as some side effects can be uncomfortable to say the least.

Clean and the room quite large. Great power points, just where you need them. Bed quite comfortable. Foxtel in the rooms. Free wifi which worked really well. Close walk to Soldiers Club and Batemans Bay itself. Would stay again.

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
