I stay here frequently for work. Hannah is an absolute legend and looks after me extremely well. Nothing is too much trouble! The customer service is incredible, location is in the heart of Sarina and food in the restaurant is always fresh and divine. I would highly recommend giving it a go!

Right in the heart of the busines area and yet so lovely and quiet. Good access for parking then leave your car and walk. Room well presented. Fridge and microwave and toaster. Woolworths next door plus other food outlets and cafes. The motel also has an all day cafe/resturant. Had a nice morning coffee there. Small swiming pool which would... More

We decided to stay over night at Sarina and with good timing, it decided to rain (complete pour down) just after we got in so late. We didn't have a booking as we were just driving as much as we could then stopped when we needed to, but I simply called ahead and asked if any rooms were available and... More

Basic room but not a lot of choice here in Sarina. Rooms are a bit tired but clean and secure. But the restaurant quality and quantity is fantastic and friendly staff and owners. Eaten here before -Quality every time.

We found this accommodation on the web. $120 per night, no brekky. As we were travelling to Port Douglas, we needed a stopover. Very clean, roomy motel. We had a queen bed with a single, which is handy as you have a little more room. This motel has a restaurant, but we chose to eat out as we were on... More

On arrival we were quoted a price of $158 for a "family" room (1 QB/1 SB).After saying Its too expensive we were told we could have it at the "weekend" rate of $120? This motel was rundown, dirty drawers, rusty shower basin ,ragged towels ,etc. We stayed at a clean, comfortable motel in Hervey Bay for less! Not recommended.
