Clean, comfortable and economic, what else can one ask for. Located close to the city and the trendy harbour cafes and bars. Very handy to the airport. Bed was comfortable, kitchenette with microwave and kettle. Yummy Hot Chocolate as well as tea and coffee in room.

We really enjoyed our stay here, a great pet friendly motel with a fantastic exercise area just across the road. Host were very friendly and everything worked fine in the room (except the stove needed to be levelled up a wee bit ) and yes the wine glasses are a tad small..... but they are all minor things. We would... More

Thank you for your review, so glad that you enjoyed our pet friendly motel and the location. We seem to have some varying sizes of wine glasses in different rooms, but the trend seems to be for bigger ones. We will keep this in mind when buying replacements. regards Helen and Nigel More

Stayed here for the third time during August 2015 and for the second time since having a travelling pet. Rooms are great, nice and comfortable and well appointed. SKY TV channels and complimentary Wi-Fi make it really easy to relax and still keep in touch. Nice having a pet friendly motel in a tourist area and there are great exercise... More

Nice setting, pleasant owner who welcomed us pleasantly. Good view. Very clean and our dog was welcome. Downhill from there alas. The bed was not made well and the electric blanket leads and controller were between the base and mattress lol weird.

We are very sorry that you had a bad experience at our motel. If only you had told us that the element had gone when it had happened, we could have fixed it straight away for you, the same with the knife missing from the cutlery tray, which, incidentally, had all the other cutlery that would be needed. It was... More

We booked 1 night in the 1 bedroom family room but were happily accommodated when we asked to extend our stay. The room was clean and spacious. The kitchen was well equipped had we wanted to cook dinner.

Easy accessed off main road but far enough back not to get the noise. Close for a beach,estuary, and harbour walks. Polite and helpful owners and family. Comfy beds made the stay pleasant. Only down side and this seems picky was the size of the glasses. We would have liked bigger glasses for our wine but we didn't ask...they may... More

My mum and I had a great overnight stay here. The room was warm, spacious and very clean. The location is nice, overlooking the estuary too. We arrived quite late in the evening but our check-in was not at all rushed - very friendly service.

Enjoyable stay. First impressions of the motel were good. Our small dog was able to be accommodated. Our unit being a ground floor level, did not have a view like some, but was easily accessed, and we were allocated close-by parking space for our two vehicles. The friendly manager personally led us to the unit, and turned on the heater... More

As soon as we arrived you could tell how friendly and helpful the owners were. The room was spotless with wifi and sky tv. We were given a recommendation for dinner and boy what a great place to eat. Our breakfast was delivered promptly also.
