Great location, on the strand, close to everything (bars, restaurants, supermarket, long walks on the strand!), on site parking and free internet; and above all a host that could not be nicer. The rooms have everything you need for a short stay, and if you're lucky (I was!) you'll get one on the 2nd floor with a view (the rooms... More

I recently stayed at the Strand Motel for 16 days while participating in the biennial sculpture event - Strand Ephemera. I would like to thank John & Janet, and their very welcoming and efficient staff for making my stay an extremely pleasant and relaxing experience.

We only stayed here two nights but would have been happy to spend more time if we go again ! John looked after us and let us know where everything was . We didn't have a car but the Strand is right in the middle of the strand so everything is within an easy stroll. Our room was amazing and... More

We only had 2 days here and wished we had more. Denise greeted us on arrival and gave us a choice of rooms, even though we had booked. The room was very clean and bright. Right on the Strand overlooking the waterfront and no traffic noise to worry about. Facing the beautiful waterfront. Washing facilites good.

As I didn't want too spend much on accomodation I chose to stay here. It was everything we expected. The Studio was small, with a very small balcony with a table and 2 chairs. everything worked and it was clean. The bed was comfortable . There is a large Supermarket and also cafes and take aways close by.

My mother in-law booked online from the UK based on the pictures on their website and its great location. The only part of the website that is accurate is its great location. We called at 6pm to say our flight had been delayed and we weren't sure how late we would now be arriving. We were assured that the front... More

Although a basic motel, it has Clean, comfortable rooms with the additional convenience of a microwave. Balcony or outside sitting area is very welcome too. Good wifi. Helpful motel managers. Excellent position opposite the sea. Supermarket close by plus the large Seaview Hotel for meals & bars. Definitely value for money and would recommend
