      Very Clean”

      The Dongara Hotel Motel is very clean, comfortable and well appointed for a short stay. Very comfortable bed with nice linens. The air conditioner works really well. The room contained ample storage, an iron/ironing board, kettle, toaster, basic crockery and cutlery, tea/coffee, mini fridge. The bathroom, even though very dated was very clean and did the job to have a shower and ample lighting to put make up on. WIFI was excellent. Plenty of on-site parking. Located right in the middle of town.

      Great Choice!”

      I've driven past Dongera turnoff a few times, on my way further north. I'm so pleased we didn't miss it this time. We arrived after dark and were greeted by the huge Morton Bay Fig trees, with the one outside the Dongera Hotel Motel sparkling with fairy lights. It was beautiful! The pub was busy, prior to COVID 19 kind of busy, so it took a little longer to check-in to our room. As soon as I spoke to a staff member we were the priority for the Manager, very friendly and helpful. Our room was easy to find, the beds were comfortable and we had a good sleep. The showers were hot and had great pressure. We returned to the pub for dinner and a drink. The atmosphere was friendly and bubbling along, with LOTS of meals ordered. We waited an hour before I joined the order queue, it was consistently 20+ people long until then. We were happy to have a drink, chat and watch the footy match on the TV in the Sports Bar. The hotel motel is located just as you enter Dongera, so there had been no searching the night before. In daylight we found we were in the centre of town, and across the road from the town oval (we happened to score the monthly Farmers' Market - BONUS). If you've never stopped in Dongera, I suggest you visit and stay at this place. They also have a great looking outdoor pool, too cold for us on this visit.

      Clean, modernised rooms in a good location in Dongara. The food at the restaurant was very average and I would use the thai cafe around the corner. We had a room facing the main street and it was a bit noisy in the morning. This is easily fixed moving to the rear of the property. Overall I would still recommend this hotel.

      Located in the heart of Dongara township the Dongara Hotel was a nice stay. The rooms are rather out dated but clean, neat and tidy. The best part of our stay was the sensational food and lovely outdoor areas. The pool too was very good and well kept. For an overnight stay to suss out our first visit to Dongara, the hotel was a good launch base.

      Comfortable and pleasant place to stay”

      My first impression when I walked in the room, was how fresh and clean the decor was. The building itself is that very typical travel motel design from the 60’s - 70’s. But the room fresh, modern, comfortable and quite large. The bathroom still showed it’s origins in its wall and floor tiles (not a criticism), but was again clean and functional, The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I had dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and enjoyed both meals. The food was very good, the prices and portions were more than reasonable. For a one night passing through stop, I enjoyed having the motel, restaurant and bar all being in close proximity. I’d happily stay again while passing through or for a few days holiday.

      Good Value Stay”

      Staff were very pleasant and helpful at reception and in dining room. Room was comfortable except for a slightly noisy exhaust fan in the bathroom which seemed to go on with a timer with the turning on of the light in the bathroom. The light switch for the bathroom in the room we had (room 5) does need attention. Quite chilly the evening we stayed so put on reverse cycle heating and it worked a treat. Double bed was firm and very comfortable.There was an adequate supply of tea/coffee/milk. Our room backed onto the main street of Dongara and it seems that the council street sweeping crew get up pretty early. The street sweeping machine and the council employee, with a petrol blower, were sweeping the street around 6am outside our room. Maybe management could raise this with the council. We had dinner and breakfast and both meals were OK and were more than we could eat. So , all in all, a nice place to stay and centrally located in quaint Dongara.

      There's better places to stay in Dongara”

      We were quite disappointed with our stay at the Dongara Motel. There's a lack of signage and a confusing layout. We spent time looking for Reception - only to find Reception was behind us, down the side of the Hotel building. Reception desk was unattended at 5:30PM. We had to go to the Bar and wait for the sole Bargirl to finish serving other clients. Then she had to call on another employee to come to Reception to book us in. Upon entry to the Motel unit, we found we weren't allocated the "large bed" option that we'd requested. The layout of the unit is appalling. There's a bench and cupboards jammed against the end of the bed, restricting movement. A cheap Chinese fridge occupies a cupboard at the end of the bed - which fridge has a sign attached, "Do not Turn Fridge off". Of course, everyone turns the fridge off, the loud noise it makes, keeps you awake! If anyone has a shower in the unit next door, the shower noise is loud. We simply paid good money, just to have a lousy sleep.

      Great hotel and location. Right in the middle of the city and facilities and not too far from ocean. The dining facility is excellent and we liked the food and ambient lighting and the atmosphere in the evening dinner. Sunday breakfast early is at a leisure pace and fewer staff. So, suggest go after 8 am to get prompt service if you a bit fussy.

      We enjoyed our stay at the Dongara Hotel Motel.”

      3 of us stayed for 4 nights (was supposed to be 5) in 3 separate rooms, we all agreed that the rooms were clean, neat, tidy and comfortable. We ate breakfast and dinner at the restaurant for most meals - and found both were very good, no issues there. Our only issue that we had to leave a day early, and "the non refundable promo". Whilst you can spend your time reading booking and cancellation gumph, I didn't, and therefore we lost 3 nights tariff - a tidy some. We will look at other options in the near future.

      Welcomed by friendly manager who let us know that there was karaoke on later that night. Had a nice evening at the hotel, unfortunately a female staff at the restaurant was very rude so we left and had takeaways over the road. Bed was very comfortable with nice pillows and linen although the room smelt of deodorizer trying to disguise the smell of the smoke drifting in from smokers who sat out the front of rooms on either side of ours. Bathroom desperately in need of renovation. Toilet cracked and leaking, very dated tiles. Woken at 1.00 am by drunken patrons who partied in close proximity to our room for hours consequently we had very little sleep. Next time will forgo the convenience of being close to the hotel and go to the B & B up the road.
