Recent guest reviews

We recently experienced a 3 night stay in the waterfront villa. Lovely view, clean, tidy, spacious and a huge balcony to entertain the kids & enjoy family meals on the open deck. All staff were very friendly. Located right in Port Central so you could walk to everything! Definitely look forward to visiting again soon.

4 night business trip made better by upgrade into larger room. Motel right in heart of town so easy access to restaurants and picturesque morning walks. Friendly staff and air conditioning to keep warm and cosy despite torrential rain at times.

Pros- good location so you can walk to restaurants. Friendly staff. Good for overnight stay. Our room was lovely and quiet and had water glimpses from front door. Comfortable king size bed. Cons- very small bathroom and shower design caused water to spill onto floor, which remained wet for hours. So it doesn't really count as an "executive room" in my books.

Great location, right I the middle of town so no need to drive. Staff very friendly. Clean tidy rooms. Pool area looks nice but not quiet warm enough to swim. No street noise. They are renovating but noise is minimal. Definitely stay here again

An impromptu stopover on our way to Qld. mean't no booking. We were very lucky to get a great room, which included a light breakfast before departure. Situated in a great position, walking distance to most amenities this was a great choice for us. The rooms were a good size, clean & secure. Very happy to recommend.

Stayed for one night - a show at the Glasshouse - and we went for a slightly bigger room: one bedroom, kitchen with all mod cons but still inexpensive and good value. The staff at the front desk (Lorraine I think) are friendly, the room was clean and airy and comfortable. A very quiet night's sleep in a comfy bed, and a continental breakfast included. Still the best location in Port and yes we will be back.

El Paso has been refurbished, pool area very nice with BBQ & lounges, nice seating area, rooms are very comfortable, new bathrooms, reception staff very pleasant & helpful. Their ice maker was out of order but they supplied us with ice for our drinks, continual breakfast included in tariff. Large flat screen TV, comfortable bed, have stayed before & would stay again.

El Passo is a great motel, it's centeralised. The owners are very friendly and very helpful. Having breakfast looking over the river was beautiful and I loved the breakfast menu of all you can eat.The rooms are perfect.

The rooms are basic but are good value for the cost. Very clean. There is a lift from underground car park. A continental breakfast included in price. There is a restaurant but I had room service & it was an absolutely beautiful meal. Staff friendly & helpful.

I always stay here when. Travel through for work, great rooms very central. Just had the room service (fish and chips) and it was awesome, the best tartare sauce I've had, real home made style not from a jar.
