    The staff were really friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom was very clean. The beds were really comfortable. Air con was good. Nice but TV. Great location right near the water and the main drag. Lovely town to stay in.

    This is a good motel with friendly staff. Clean rooms, a lovely pool and outside shaded areas to sit and enjoy a drink on a sunny afternoon. Walking distance to the surf beach, shops, cafes and restaurants and the inlet. Great value.

    We had a lovely time at golden sand. WiFi, T.V and kitchen appliances all worked perfectly I would recommend to all my friends. Amazing position, lots of restaurants and beach very near by. Pool was a good temperature and crystal clear.

    Upgraded as soon as we arrived to room with balcony on first floor, clean, spacious, very welcoming staff. Close to beach and river, shops and eateries. A little outdated but good value for money. Stayed for three nights, enjoyed pool and barbecue facilities.More
