With the exception of flat screen TVs and wifi it would seem that no money has been spent on this property since c1974. Breakfast was reasonable. I get wrankled when business owners... More

Had a great stay at the Applewood! The staff and owners were so nice and the breakfast, room and hotel in general were all great! The room was spacious and we look forward to staying again when the refurb is finished! Thanks for putting up with us at Chillisauce!

Stayed here for long weekend with two toddlers. Very accommodating and helpful and didn't mind the noise of two noisy princesses. Great easy to walk into town and beach. Free wifi and kids loved the breakfast. I especially enjoyed the cocktails.
