“great stay”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Great facilities, good pool for a quick dip, fantastic food next door at the club and the hosts are very helpful.Found the rooms well equipped with a decent size TV and the bush out the back is relaxing

Room Tip: A five minute drive to the beach, but with walking distance of the river and shops

Brilliant stay. Affordable, great location with very clean beds and bathroom.
Quiet area but next to the club for good and drink a walk away. Walking distance from restaurants, ice cream parlour And a pub.

We stayed at Club Inn Motel for 2 nights 07/02 & 08/02 we had 2 rooms. Both the rooms were a bit dated but clean and the beds comfortable. Location was a bit out of town but peaceful . Yes the breakfast was bread, weetbix and juice it was advertised as breakfast supplied not buffet or restaurant and that is exactly what it was. Room was unserviced but for a weekend who cares?
Our rooms looked at the bowling green which was ok. We had dinner in the club which was just a walk up the driveway.
The owners were very nice and helpful especially when i needed to change our booking,Robyn always sent through confirmation emails and were very nice when we booked in.
They were very knowledgeable about the local area.
I would stay here again.

This place is nothing like what they show in the pictures.
It is located in front of a cemetery, in the middle of no where. The room was smelly, in the bathroom there was hair everywhere. The white spa bath was kind of yellow.
Breakfast was included. So in the mini bar we found 2 slices of bread wrapped in plastic, 4 weet-bix and two glasses of juice (yes, open glasses).
I received a two night voucher from work, for a romantic get away. The voucher from the motel had beautiful pictures. To our surprise, the place was completely different from the pictures. I had read bad reviews for this place on google already, but as it was a present from work, I thought google was mistaken! (Google is always right!)
We did the check in hoping that the inside would be better then the outside presentation. After 30 minutes in the room we decided to leave and drive another 3 hrs back home.
I don't recommend this place to anyone.

We stayed at the motel for one night. The room was large but smelt extremely musty on arrival. There was a urine smell near the toilet. When we booked in we were told about the spa bath as if it was a feature obviously they are unaware of how much bacteria they harbor, not the sort of feature we want.
We dined at the club next door during which time there was a blackout. When we returned to the motel the man who booked us in was standing outside the office, he said "we don't have a generator." There was no attempt to assist us to find out room down the dark corridors although surely they would have a torch. We negotiated by the light of our mobile phone, noticing that the corridor did not have the required emergency lighting. My husband did not find the bed comfortable but I did. I would not choose to stay there again.
Very dated.

We stayed at this motel for 2 days.
Pros:
Nice size room
Very clean
Large bathroom
Large shower with nice heat and good shower pressure
Nice pool
Breakfast, it was very basic but fine for 2 people
Air conditioner worked amazing
Friendly staff
Cons:
Room smelt very musty upon entering
Extra bed in room made room feel cramped
Out-dated furniture and décor/paint
Stains on furniture
Bed linen was standard motel fare but was disappointed as was expecting nice white bed linen
Pillows were flat and hard and mattress was hard, had a bad nights sleep both nights due to this

If the price was lower I would stay here again but as is I would not. Some basic updating is needed like pillows and linen but even then I don't think it would justify the price.

We are over from the UK and have motored from Brisbane to Sydney. We found this motel by accident and because of the welcome we received and the beautiful surrounding area decided to stay an extra day. The food in the in the nearby club was great, the breakfasts and dinner in the Boatshed --a walk to the water--was sublime.

As to the previous complaint about lack of BOSE sound system--Bought Often Seldom Enjoyed--allegedly--GET A LIFE
