Recent guest reviews

Very happy with this room. Exceptionally clean and well presented. Beds are soft and comfortable. Less than 10 minutes from Gold Coast Airport and on the free bus shuttle run to Seagulls Club. Yes you can hear the occasional plane overhead but the noise inside of the rooms was not really intrusive. So don’t be put off by the proximity to the airport.

Great location for early morning flight to the airport, room was very clean and had everything you needed for a short stay, staff very friendly and willing to help inform you of anything you may need to know, would stay again!

Not the cheapest but definitely worth the few dollars extra to stay. We enjoyed the overall cleanliness and the comfort of the beds was truly amazing'. The only small detail we encountered was that the car parking spaces were not always available closest to our room.

What a fabulous hostess in a great location! Very appreciative of the assistance and “go the extra mile@ service here. They treat you like friends and family...ALL staff 😊 Breakfast was delicious with fresh fruits, yoghurts, breads for toasting, cereal selection and coffee/teas. Yes, you hear the odd plane, but there are none at night. Very relaxing shaded pool. Would definitely stay again ❤️

On our way home from Noosa and we booked this motel, pleasantly surprised. The lady owner was very helpful. Unit was clean and tidy. We had an upper level room and although near the airport we were not bothered by aircraft noise. A good nights rest was had and breakfast was include in the price. Highly recommended.

Stayed here as we had a Christmas party to go to. The lady at reception was very friendly and couldn’t of done more for us. The room was clean and tidy and the beds were very comfortable. Would totally recommend anyone to stay there.

Have stayed here twice & both times Karen has been amazing when I arrived & I found the rooms to be clean & tidy. The recent renovations are wonderful & whilst I was staying there they changed the bed accessories colouring to a beautiful teal green makes the room look so much more inviting.

We stayed here before a local triathlon and I must say I was really impressed. The service was outstanding and they were considerate enough to explain daylight savings so we didn’t miss the race. The room was spotless and well cared for. I would happily stay here again even if it was just for a holiday!

Just a two-night stay to shake off the jet lag after travelling from Canada. A delightful welcome from Karen set us off well. Our room was on the small side but comfy and impeccably clean. Fridge, microwave, toaster and kettle available in the room. Just a short drive to the beautiful beaches of Coolangatta.

Stayed there two nights with my daughter and it was really extraordinary, how much care Mrs. Karen took for us - her guests. It's not a resort but very nice and very clean and orderly rooms with very comfortable beds. Lot's of beach life is very close , so good place to stay with a car , yes it's a Motel.
