Clean and really comfortable, love the 'surprise' of the electric blanket on the bed! Late check in was really easy, they even emailed me the details. After a long drive I found the place really easy to find and loved the free off street parking.

It's more like serviced apartments situated within a motel complex basically. Very modern, friendly staff, free parking and spotless within the rooms. I cannot fault the place. It's a motel that has been renovated, restored and decorated like serviced apartments. They provide free parking. The staff are friendly. You can get snacks and breakfast things on site. Short walk into...

This is a nice hotel. Ask for a room that has been renovated. The reception closes at 7pm and they don't answer the phone. Could cause some issues if your unaware like us as we wanted to book another night but rang at 7.10pm so no answer.

Upon arrival of the room booked, we found the aircon is on to keep the room warm. Although the room is relatively small but equipped with cooking facility, which is handy to us. Location is quiet, but not far from Sandy Bay shopping district. It is also close enough to CBD/Salamanca Market. Staff are friendly and helpful. We ended up...

Motel was very handy to town, just over the road from the water and not far from the Casino. Nice area to take a walk. Our motel unit was clean and modern with parking directly outside on the ground floor. The only bad feature was the room was directly under a staircase which meant we had to be very careful...

Stayed here 2 nights in an upstairs room and it was really nice. Very clean, comfy bed and a nice view to the Casino. Close to a few good spots to visit and a great walking track out the front. My only complaint was the very narrow walkway to our room on the top floor right at the end which...
