My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights.
The hotel is central to everything. Shopping mall across the road. Restaurants and pubs just a short walk away.
The pool could do with perhaps a sun lounge around it.
The owner is very friendly.

Went for a special catch up last night and unfortunately the large crowd attending the wine and cheese presentation that coincided with our visit must have contributed to the downfall of what is usually delightful food.
We ordered fish, crumbed and unfortunately it was not fully cooked through, and served with a poorly presented salad with way to many chips, my friends Mortern bay bugs were however delicious.
For the higher prices charged at 98 I have always had a high standard of food I think the competition along quay street is now giving this long standing restaurant a serious run for the money.

I am deeply upset that your meal was not up to the standard that Restaurant 98 usually achieves. If you were not happy with your meals at anytime you could have notified the staff we would have rectified the problem. Our prices are competitive with others and we pride ourselves with quality food and a high level of service.

This motel was clean, comfortable and staff were so friendly! The motel and restaurant are very dated and needs a make over but so clean!
I will definite be going back in the future. I hope that they can upgrade down the track but keep the lovely old fashion good service they now give.

I stand by my answer to your comments as honest, true and correct.
We advertise that the restaurant is open 7 days a week for breakfast and 6 days a week for evening meals (except public holidays). It is our policy to give our guests the restaurant times on arrival. Sometimes guests are in a rush and do not give us the time on checkin to explain, this is the only reason that I can think that would explained why you did not receive the information or the wifi password that was mentioned previously. I must point out that the restaurant times are also explained in the compendium in the room.
We are disappointed that Motel 98 did not come up to your expectations as quality and service is extremely important to us.

Business dinner, the staff were fantastic. The Morney bugs were very ordinary, I get, they were thawed out and cooked but were like rubber, needed plyers to get them out of the shell.
Main was fresh Barramundi, came out cold and was informed it was because of the breeze coming thorough the window"NOT". Not a pleasant night and a bad choice to impress client however the floor staff were faultless

We were disappointed that you did not enjoy your meal. The Morton Bay Bugs are our specialty and very popular with our customers.
It is true that we had a problem with the fish (Red Emperior not Barramundi), the kitchen was having a few problems as we were in the middle of a storm at the time but again I will say there was no excuse for you meal not to be perfect.
Thank you for your feedback and we hope you give us another chance in the future.
