We stayed 8 nights and used the car once! A 2 minute walk to shops and the ferry,30 seconds to the water and yet so peaceful. Our apartment had fabulous water/boat views from the lounge/kitchen and even the upstairs bedroom. Very accommodating hosts; well appointed kitchen - small but workable; excellent value for money. Will return!

Lovely view of mariner. Well appointed comfortable room, good size bathroom, very clean, staff were friendly, nice and quiet, comfortable bed, close to everything. This is a lovely place to stay out of the larger towns, highly recommend this motel and area.

Its a very nice Motel with a friendly Staff gave us such a warm welcome feeling at their property. The Room was bigger as we expected, very clean and direct beside the Marina. You can choise coming by Boat from Pier side, or from Road side by car.

We got a seaview apartment with spacious living room. The view is amazing and the kitchen is great too! It's walking distance to the Raymond Island ferry and near to supermarket too. We've enjoyed the stay and the Homecooked breakfast at the balcony.

Really can't fault this place, but the view from our room was the icing on the cake. Walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. Quiet, clean and spacious room with comfortable bed and an outside area to sit and watch the boats go by - just lovely!

From the moment we checked in we knew we had chosen the best. The room was comfortable and welcoming. Everything we were promised when booking online was delivered which is always pleasing. The waterfront view was lovely and we enjoyed sitting by the canal feeding the swan and ducks who came right up to us. The owners were warm and...

We stayed for a night in Paynesville, in town for for a sad occasion, and the friendly staff were very accommodating and understanding. The apartment we stayed in was superb, beautiful view, incredibly comfy beds, all the amenities you'd expect and a stunning coastal location. I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

We have just returned from a two night stay at Mariners Cove in Paynesville. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment overlooking the Esplanade and Raymond Island. This would have to be the roomiest apartment I have stayed in. The apartments are two storey with a large bathroom/laundry, full kitchen (no dishwasher), dining table with 6 chairs, two lounges, tv,...

This is an outstanding motel. The position is fantastic, all rooms face the waterfront. The managers Jack and his wife ( Jennie, I think) are very friendly and cannot do enough for you. A short level walk on paved footpaths takes you to the ferry to Raymond Island (biggest natural koala sanctuary in Australia) and the fabulous range of cafe's...

This is a beautifully located motel/ apartments. Swans at the back door, wake up to the sun glistening on the water. Clean, centrally located & friendly owners. Easy access to the water & local shops.
