Nice sized rooms and very clean. A short drive to Torquay beaches and some nice cafes and pubs within a short walk of the motel. Great value for money.

We were generally happy with room. It was clean & a good size & over all in good condition except the toilet seat which should have been replaced years ago. We stayed 2 nights & was disappointed with the lack of any room clean between the days. The bed wasnt even made ,only the doona pulled up. We also had to wash our dishes or risk an additional fee. We have never come across this in a motel before.
