Have stayed here several times, and have always had great service, friendly helpful staff, clean quiet rooms, and in a convenient place for Glenelg, tram service is good to get you to the city. This motel is also not far from the airport,

We arrived on the Friday evening and were greeted by a very friendly and help receptionist and nothing was too much towards helping us. The room although a bit dated was very comfortable. We will be staying there again.

Stayed at this motel and impressed with the security and rooms. Refurbished but not over the top and very comfortable. About 500 metres to holdfast marina and a bit further to jetty road but easy walk and worth it for the serene location

Stay at this property whenever we can get a vacancy.....as they are very popular. The Winter special of $99 per couple with free full breakfast is great value. Very clean rooms and friendly staff. Manager Kylie is totally pro-active and welcoming.

We stayed here just for one night in one of the spa rooms. The staff were very friendly on arrival, the room was exceptionally clean and comfortable and quiet. One small criticism was the jets in the spa didn't seem very strong, apart from that we would highly recommend this motel for a stay.
