Pipes rattled. Neighbouring room guests came home at 4.00am and had a shower and when the water was turned on, made loud knocking noise which woke us up. This was repeated half an hour later .

This motel was perfect for our needs as it was close to the function we were attending. The check-in service was excellent and so was the cleanliness of the room. The only down fall is the age of the rooms but good for 1 night stays 👍

Fabulous location. Shops and restaurants very close by. A beautiful stroll to the beach or to the shopping Centre. Tram into Adelaide is a 10 min walk too. Staff were wonderful. They were friendly and very helpful. It’s basic accommodation done well. We would be happy to stay here again.

Thank you for staying with us. When you book online the system isn't always perfect as you are relying on an email to hit our screen. I would always recommended phoning through a booking. We do have new carpet, new air-conditioners and modern TVs and we are budget priced.
