We made a brief visit to Tweed Heads en route to Byron Bay and had a very pleasant stay, we were warmly welcomed by Karen and she provided us with lots of information about the area and places to eat. There is a small pool and garden area. It was fine.

Karen at the front desk cannot do enough for her guests, to ensure that they have the perfect stay. Being here for business, Karen suggested a number of nearby eateries so that I could relax rather than run around looking for where to go. On top of that, if anything needed to be done (eg. internet ran out, or needed...

Great little hotel. Very clean and tidy. Parking directly outside your door, with shade cloth overhead. Bathroom was large enough and very clean. Pay TV channels, good airconditioning and very friendly staff. Close enough to Seagulls club. Just be careful exiting as the road is pretty busy. Certainly would stay here again.

All rooms have a shade cover at the front for the car. Our room was ground level and was a very good size with a queen bed, sofa, table and 2 chairs....

We made a last minute decision to head to the Northern Rivers for a quick trip. It was still school holidays, so we were pleasantly surprised to be able to find accommodation. The room was very reasonably priced, very spacious and immaculately clean. The greeting from reception was typically friendly for this neck of the woods. It's a bit close...

I would've given a 5-star rating if it wasn't for the fact that it's located near the airport runway, so if you are bothered by the noise, forget it. But I must say that most of the time the planes are landing, so it's not that noisy. There's a curfew at night time, so you will sleep OK. Apart from...

Pleasantly surprised by this little Gem. From the friendliness and helpfulness of reception to the very clean and tidy room we had. Bathroom looked newly renovated and was spotless as was the shower recess.
