Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stayed in the three bedroom house and it has been newly renovated. We were a family of 6 and absolutely loved the accommodation. Everything was better than expected and the manager was more than helpful. There were two toilets as well which is a bonus when staying with a large group. We highly recommend this motel and would definitely stay again.

We have been to Peninsula few time and absolutely love it. Stayed in the Studio Apartment which was really clean and kitchen well equipped. Wifi was brilliant. TV had all Sky channels including movies and sports. And even inbuilt Netflix. Fred the Manager is always pleasant and even offered us some of his home grown fresh lettuce. Looking forward to our next visit there.

Excellent place to stay. It offers everything like a 5 star hotel. Located in central and handy to everywhere. Room has an air condition, however there was no mention of it on the advertisement and it was very important for us. Clean and comfortable.

We were met by the host who was lovely and welcoming. The rooms were larger than expected and had everything we needed. The motel is an easy walk into town. We even had a small private deck that caught the afternoon sun. The heater warmed up the unit quickly, plus we were off the road front so found the unit nice and quiet. Ample parking. Would definitely stay again.

The room was clean and had everything we required and a newspaper delivered to read with our morning coffee. The bed was lovely and comfortable with an electric blanket. Fred was a warm and friendly host and nothing was too much trouble for him. Great wheelchair access too.

Excellent accommodation. We had a wheelchair access unit with our friends in the unit next door. Very clean unit and very comfortable king beds. When we arrived Fred had turned on the heater so room was warm. Dog friendly motel. Fred was amazing and very helpful. We recommend staying here.

Very clean and run by friendly people who were very obliging and helpful. The location was brilliant as in walking distance of town and the marina. Would recommend this motel being so clean and comfortable and near many cafes and restaurants.
