Just passing through town for one night and chose the Jolly Swagman. All round it was a great place to stay, very clean, quite and comfortable. My only negative would be that the breakfast was a bit cold. I'll definitely stay again but.

Relocating our family dog from Melbourne to Gold Coast and where to stay was the dilemma along the way. In the end the choice was easy we booked at the Jolly Swagman and enjoyed a good nights sleep in a clean and basic room. The owner Les was very welcoming and we will,stay again in the future.

Stays one night when passing through town. Room was clean and comfortable. The owners run the motel and the restaurant. Service was friendly and second to none. The steak for dinner was one of the best I've had. Outstanding.

Arrived at the motor inn a bit late after travelling all day. The hosts were so welcoming it was like arriving at a friend's place. Nice touches like fresh milk and biscuits in our room. Room had everything we needed, nice comfortable bed and good bathroom. Would definitely stop there again.
