Stayed here en-route to surfers. Found it clean and tidy with a friendly accommodating owner. Good location, meal at nearby bowling club and great breakfast cafe also nearby. Walked to the Beach immediately across the road, would certainly stay here again.

Friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are small however clean and tidy. Small car park it is a bit tight to get in and out of. Cheap accommodation with free wifi, kettle toaster and microwave good for sales reps. Walking distance to the beach and sports club.

Just needed a place to stay overnight while on the road. For the price it's great value don't expect luxury. Just basic amenities with a comfy bed and friendly owners which was perfect. Also good location for a quick meal at the bowls club a short walk away.

This is a very good value motel. Close to the beach and the sports club. Rooms are basic, but have everything you usually get in a hotel room. Managers were very friendly and helpful. No great views from the rooms. Car park is small, so if you don't get in early you will have to park on the road.

Nice clean compact room, friendly management. Close to beach clubs hotels and cafes. Could have had some sort of breakfast re cereal etc but cafe was a short walk. We would stay again . Beds are comfortable, tiles are a bit cold possibly a rug would improve the coldness

Hotel has perfect location, just 5 mins walk to beach, park, bbq area, cafe and tavern and about 15 mins to harbour drive to few good restaurants. Love to stay at surf beach hotel. Friendly staff, clean rooms and front and rear parking facilities and free WiFi. I would love to visit again.

The room we stayed in was on the back wing upstairs and was spacious and clean. The bed was big, however the mattress was a touch soft. It was cold and there was only 1 layer of blanket on the bed. We could not get the recycled air conditioning working and there was no electric blanket. We should have look... More
