                    8.2

                    We stayed in one of the 3 bedroom apartments, as we would never have stayed in just one of the motel rooms. We wanted something close to the shops and also the beach and this motel suited the requirements perfectly. The apartment was very large and comfortable with air-con (both heating & cooling) so we were happy about that as it was winter! It was also clean and well-equipped with cooking equipment and a laundry. Would definitely stay in this apartment again.

                    The actual Motel exterior could do with a coat of paint and really looks quite tired...doubt it has been refurbished in a long while. Inside, the apartments needed some rugs on the tiled floors in the living & dining area (and possibly hallway) as the sound of voices travelled throughout the apartment and therefore made it a little noisy. In winter, this would also be beneficial.

                  • Group of friends
                    10.0

                    Spacious appartment with all facicities there. Pool close by Excellent location

                    Because it is a family appartment and we had young children with us it would of been better if a few plastic plates, cups and bowls were provided.

                  • Single
                    6.6

                    Cost effective for a singe night's transit accommodation

                    Room allocated had not been cleaned after previous occupant indicating poor quality control. an alternative room and upgrade was provided quickly though

                  • Older travelers
                    9.2

                    I booked over the net not sure of really what to expect though on arriving was pleasantly surprised staff were friendly great location easy to find room was small but had everything I needed enjoyed my stay will definately stay again!

                  • Single
                    9.2

                    Locality, great access to local shopping, beaches, resturaunts. Room information up to date regarding local sites as well as other interesting tourist destinations that are all accessable by car or other transport.Golden sands as I know it has been there for at least 40 years however the motel is totally up to date, clean, friendly would certainly go back n recommend to anyone

                    Mushrooms on toast brekky very dry, extra butter should be offered at no xtra cost. Otherwise all ok!!!

                  • Group of friends
                    9.2

                    It was very spacious and comfortable central to town, clubs & pubs, beaches and river , + resturants, loved it

                    One tiny problem that would not be to hard to rectify, update of cooking utenciles, frypans, also mabe an electric frypan would make some cooking a lot easier, main hotplate not working, other than that the place was great.

                    Price was good, basic room but happy with it considering what I paid. Location was good, no complaints at all.

                    The friendly staff and the way we were welcome when we arrived.

                    Nothing to report.

                    8.2

                    Ideal location for town and beach, no problems parking

                    Being near a main road - a little noisy but that is to be expected with its good location. And I'm a poor sleeper anyway

                  • Older travelers
                    5.4

                    It was very clean

                    The price we paid was so much more than the price on sandwich board at front of motel.when we tried to book a night earlier than we booked we were told we couldn't stay because the room hadn't been cleaned(just clean it)we would have understood if someome was in it. And the next day the room still wasn't ready and we had to go away and come back 2 hours later.

                  • Group of friends
                    8.8

                    Good price and location, friendly staff, free WiFi and no hassles.

                  • Family with children
                    5.0

                    The second bedroom was very spacious and even had a TV in it. Guest laundry was free.

                    We expected a much nicer motel from the pictures we've seen on the website. It seemed run down and seemed the owners didn't really care about it anymore.

                  • Older travelers
                    7.4

                    Close to shops & beach.

                    No hot water at night & hot water didn't come through until 7:30 am next morning. I told the manager when we were booking out but he was at a loss to explain what was wrong as thhe other guests had hot water.

                  • Older travelers
                    10.0

                    We had a very comfortable clean room that was a pleasure to stay in. We will definately go back to Golden Sands again. Friendly staff & a great price
