“Not value”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

Small room on the main road with moderate noise at night, all rooms close to the road. Extremely small bathroom. Sheets and towels ok quality. Bed average. Short walk into town. Would have marked a four for cleanliness except for the small coach roach on the curtain as we left. Upon check-in I was handed two WiFi vouchers and told not for Skype or large file download. Did not get time to check all my emails before time run out. Not good value motel in my experience.

SandpiperUlladulla, Owner at Sandpiper Motel, responded to this review, 11 March 2014
Thankyou somtamandshiraz for taking the time to make a reveiw. Just so the general public can understand, our room rates do not include a charge for wifi. We offer the ability for guests to use our wifi FREE of charge. We are in a semi rural area where conectivity is sometimes an issue.(Especially when there are storms). We therefore suggest to guests to limit the use of their FREE access code to essential things like emails. Each code allows 20Mb download which is more than sufficient for a 24hr period. You were provided with 2 codes - FREE yet you don't think this is 'value'?? We offer clean comfortable budget accommodation and have been rated as the best value place of this type of accommodation for the past 3 years for this area. Our bathrooms have a shower, vanity and toilet - older style but fully functional and extremely clean. I am dissapointed at your Review Title as it is likely to mislead potential guests. Also, and I ask this of each and every guest, If you have a concern, problem or are unhappy about any aspect of your stay at any accommodation place can you please bring it to the attention of the manager first ? So that we may be able to sort out your discomfort or concerns during your stay so you get more value for your expenditure. I would also add that we conduct pest control routinely and the appearance of 1 bug after heavy rain here is testament that the barriers we have in place are working. Again, it would have been nice to have been told about the bug at the time so we could remove it. What did you do ? Leave it there? Happy Travels, Cathy

Ticked all the boxes for a comfortable, clean, budget stay. Good location -downhill walk to shopping strip, KFC across the road and a nice stroll along the harbour to the circular track on the lovely headland. Good service and the complimentary vouchers for Funland went down a treat with the kids.

Arrived tired and hot, greeted by friendly staff. Asked for a quiet room and was given a room behind office. The room had air con, fan, was very clean and had a very comfortable bed. The motel is a quick stroll past the pretty Ulladulla Harbour to the shops. Dinner at the local bowling club was excellent - also walking distance to motel. Would not hesitate to stay at The Sandpiper again.

We spent one night and found the room and bed comfortable, clean but quite small. Everything was clean and it was great to have the bigger size fridge and a microwave. It is a short drive to the beach but the small pool is very nice after a long drive. The staff were friendly and volunteered information on the town about things to do during our stay. We would recommend this motel for a short stay or overnight stop-over. There is a nice walk to the harbour and KFC is across the road.

Great accommodation at the Sandpiper Motel. We were really stuck at the last minute for somewhere to stay an were so glad you had a vacancy for us. It was clean, comfortable and cosy while keeping with the Retro style that brings back wonderful memories. My daughter and her friend loved the pool and the TV with DVD.It made my stay with two 11 year olds a great break in a beautiful town. Thanks again.
