    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

    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.
