        Great motel for Lake Macquarie or even travelling to Sydney”

        Stayed here many times. Clean and Modern facilities. Comfy beds. Friendly staff. Pool and BBQ Area. Not far off the M1 so very handy if travelling to and from Sydney and want a quiet reasonably priced motel.

        This would be rated as a three star place. Its rooms are a bit shabby and tide, the bed was clean and comfortable. Its location is more than a walk but only a 5 min drive to the Toronto town centre, and has good access back to the motorway

        Hello Ian, I just noticed your review and although you stayed a while ago I still wanted to respond. Our location is great for travelers with quick easy access off and back onto the M1 motorway. The Catalina Motel is also only 2kms from the waters edge of Lake Macquarie and the town centre as you so rightly point out. As for the rooms they have been recently painted in a fresh neutral colour, are of a good size, well appointed and clean. Certainly some of the furnishings will be replaced in due course as per our schedule of works. We continually strive to improve and take onboard all feedback so thanks for your comments. Hope to see you back in 2019! Best wishes for the new year, Regards, Eleanor

        We stayed here on a trip north and again on the return journey. The staff were helpful, rooms very comfortable and location good as a stopping off point. It is a little out of town, but easy to get to from the highway and nice & quiet. Rooms were clean, comfortable, spacious & well equipped.

        Clean, efficient, economical.

        I travelled from the Gold Coast by car for business in Sydney and needed a place to stay overnight leaving the rest of the journey to complete in the morning, thus avoiding the hustle and bustle and cost if staying in a Sydney after a long journey. This clean and tidy hotel worked out perfectly.

        Staff was accommodating enough to entertain our early check in request. Room was clean and tidy except when we had to move our beds to rearrange and found lots of food scraps under the bed, can be better! Overall good place to stay if the purpose is to use the place for rest only and don't have too much expectation from the place. Lots of shops nearby (1 km or so) and the lakefront is also about 1 km away. Staff is helpful and non fussy.
