“My stay at the Sanpiper”
Reviewed 6 May 2013

On the week of Anzac Day my wife and I spent 2 nights at the Sandpiper Motel. We found the accommodation to be very good. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good and plentiful. The Motel was well situated and quiet. I would recommend this motel to others who would like to stay in Ulladulla.

I went to a wedding last weekend and managed to find this little gem. Cathy was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable about what was happening in and around town for the weekend. The rooms were standard but they were very clean and not a bad size. The beds were comfortable and i had a fantastic sleep. In fact so good a sleep i slept thru my checkout time.

I would stay there again and the location is second to none. I thoroughly recommend staying here.

We have enjoyed our stay and loved the fresh clean towels and vacuumed room since I was travelling with kids and they did make a mess each day. Cathy couldn't be anymore friendly with everything. The kids loved the funland vouchers and a movie each nights. Overall very good.

We stayed here on Good Friday, it was one of the few allowing a 1 night stay over the Easter period and without the inflated costs of other accommodation in the area.

Check in was fast and welcoming. The room was clean and fresh with ample room and surprisingly quiet for being on the highway.

After we checked out we received a phone call letting us know we'd left our phone charger in the room and the offer was made to send it to us.

We loved our stay here and would happily stay again.

As other reviewers have noted, Ulladulla is a small town with not much in itself to attract the visitor but it is on the coastal route from Sydney to Melbourne and if you're travelling in that direction (south) I reckon that this is where the coast and its beaches start to become truly attractive. Therefore this makes an ideal first stopping place out of Sydney.
The Sandpiper is well-run by Brad & Kathy and they are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, well-equipped and very reasonably priced and there is a clean pool. The town centre is about 5 minutes walk down the road and there are numerous eateries there as well as the shops. The motel's continental breakfast at AUS$ 8 was more than adequate.
You're probably not going to take a week's holiday in Ulladulla, but for a staging post (or a little more) the Sandpiper is ideal. We would definitely stay here again.

My family and I stayed for two nights in the family room which was very neat and tidy. My kids had a fantastic time in the pool which was also very clean. The lady in the office was very friendly and welcoming. Will definitely stay here again :)

We stayed in the Sandpiper Motel on our way to the Prom and found it to be a very good place to stay the night. The rooms were clean and well equipped. Staff was friendly and helpful. The only drawback of Ulladulla is there is little to do but if you are passing through this is the place to stay.
