4/5 Good

Travelled with partner
Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
We liked the King size bed and proximity to the beach and surf club. It was very quiet even though situated on the main road. The air-conditioning worked great and the fan too - it was a very hot weekend. I would've liked some more kitchenware e.g., salad bowel, tongs, more than one water glass, better cutlery ... Fridge was good. Big enough for water, beer, wine and some fruit. An ice machine would've been great at the motel. Bathroom was moden and clean. We paid over $150 per might which was high for that kind of place but because the borders were flung open and it was start of school hols, all the motels and hotels upped their prices to take advantage. I'd say $90 night would've been fairer. All in all, location is good with the market, surf club and beach. Coolum is 20 mins by car. You'd only go to Marcoola if you know someone there but it's a nice little spot for a weekend cos it's not as crowded as Coolum.
