Frequently Asked Questions

How many people can sleep in a room?

Our rooms can accommodate a maximum of 3 people only. We do not provide any extra bedding and due to the motel style of accommodation we cannot allow more than 3 people per room (including children).


Can children stay?

Tallow Beach Motel is not particularly suited for a family getaway, however we can accommodate one adult and one child over 10 years of age in a room. Our intimate style of accommodation and shared facilities does not provide for a family holiday environment.


Can we have twin beds?

Yes, please request on booking.


Can we book for a group?

No, our style of accommodation is not suitable for family or group bookings. Groups tend to impact on our other guests, many of whom come to the Tallow Beach Motel for a calm place to unwind.
