What more could you want, great place great value. Sea view, huge spa bath, spacious room. Rebecca on the front desk was probably the most friendly, helpful and customer focused person we've encountered at any hotel reception.

Fantastic view of the sea from the room and balcony to see the sunrise. The spa bath is huge and the room is spacious with a well equipped kitchen. Easy walk to or from the centre so you can leave the car at the motel. A tip as well is there a fish and chippy on the corner just down... More

We turned up late in the afternoon, no booking and to a friendly and helpful welcome. The room was spotless, nice linen,, lovely spa bath. This was a great location for us, just across from the beach and cycle tracks, a short walk to town and restaurants. Will definitely stay again if in the area.

Five of us stayed in this Motel in a two bedroom unit. Plenty of space, great facilities, close to town, just an ideal place for a 2 day stay. Friendly welcome, good parking and sea views made the stay enjoyable. And for the morning walk the walk way along the beach would be very hard to beat.

Stayed one night on spec, and found this to be spotless with excellent facilities. We were able to walk to most of the interesting Art Deco sites, a well as as the viewpoint above the harbour, but we are active keen walkers. The welcome and general service was excellent.

This is a great motel, close enough to walk to town in one direction and to the aquarium in the other. Very quiet rooms and well laid out. We had a room facing away from the sea but with a spa pool in the room. It was very clean and felt spacious at a very reasonable rate.

Stayed in this motel for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was excellent and very accommodating. A stones throw from the beach and despite having a ground floor ocean view room I had gorgeous views across to the ocean. The rooms are large and roomy with cosy bathrooms. An added bonus was the huge spa bath and king... More

Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our one night stay here. John was the ultimate host, with lots of tips of where to go and what to do. The unit was huge and so well equipped, everything was thought of. Would recommend to all.

Stayed one night in a ground floor unit, on the back street (not beachfront side). It was clean and tidy, good size unit. If it had been a better weekend (weather-wise) it would have been good to have a unit with a better view. We arrived early (around 11 am) without a booking, but, as the unit was available, we...

We had a ground floor unit which was very clean and spacious. The spa bath really was more like a two person spa it was so large. Reception was warm and inviting. We thought $224 for 2 nights was very good value. Only hint to the motel was to provide a door hanging if you dont want to be disturbed... More
