Always a friendly welcome.

Pros: Very quiet and clean. It's always nice to end a long day on the road, sitting on a quiet balcony, sipping something cold and checking the ocean view.
Cons: Just a little polish on the glasses in the kitchen every now and then.
I have stayed at this property a few times and it always pleases. Clean and comfortable rooms, a pleasant pool area with BBQ and ample parking. Very close to the Tannum pub and the shopping centre, which offers a good selection of take-a-way and dine in options.

Lovely hotel in a convenient position.

Pros: Friendly, efficient staff with clean and spacious unit facilities. Kitchen area was very well equipped.
Cons: I was very happy with everything. ☺
Location: Location, at the top of a hill, was magic. Supermarket very close. Early morning walk along the riverbank and round to the beach was beautiful.
This is a lovely hotel, very well presented with friendly staff and excellent facilities. The reception was very helpful with information about the area and her directions were spot on. I was only there overnight but would be happy for a longer stay next time.

Conveniently located

Pros: The convenience and pricing made this an excellent choice. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. It is also only a short drive to Gladstone.
We were visiting Tannum Sands for a brief break and found this Motel very convenient as it is only a very short walk to the shopping centre and yet was not noisy.

We were visiting a sick family member and was very good because we were close to shops and our family lives a street away.
