Clean and very good condition room in a nice location (and neighbourhood) along Mermaid Beach, with 5 min walk to a cluster of cafe and restaurants. The room was a little tight for my side and 2 kids (1 single 1 double bed) but it was still comfortable and an affordable option for our Gold Coast vacation. Ample parking as there are only limited number of room in this boutique motel. 30min drive to theme parks and a stone's throw to KFC (drive in) and Domino's Pizza for easy meals. Staff were friendly and helpful, even though front desk was only manned during regular working hours.

This hotel is very nice. Extra firm bed. Cleanliness is 5 star. Not crazy about the shower pressure but can’t complain. This easily beats out any high rise hotel in downtown surfers.

For a small, older style accommodation, it has been tastefully renovated with beautiful finishes and a comfortable bed. The place was full but we did not hear any noise from other travellers. We received a call asking us our expected arrival time. Our flight had been delayed so we were possibly not going to meet the 6pm check in time. The manager sent us details to access our room key which was very easy to understand. A perfect stay. Thanks!
