Booked for one night but changed to three after first night. Great accommodation right on the seafront. We had great views over to Russell and could lie in bed and watch all of the action. Studio unit was great value for money with all of the location and facilities of luxury accommodation for a very reasonable price. Staff were wonderful.... More

We had booked two units, 2 x 1 bedroom, one with a bay view, the other upstairs with no view. The front unit was smaller, but the views compensated for that, and the other unit was very roomy. Both were well equipped and clean, and the beds very comfortable, and the manager was very helpful and friendly. It was great... More

We stayed at this place for 4 nights and came away quite impressed. Our unit was spacious, very tidy and well equipped. We had taken with us our two pet dogs, having a small grass porch on the ground floor units made this motel a perfect choice for us. The motel is beautifully located, less than 5 mins from the...

Our unit was quite spacious compared to ones near by that were significantly more expensive. Property is right on water front, is centrally located, and our unit had great view over the bay. A bonus for us was the bbqs (1 per 2 units). Out host Graham was friendly and helpful in advise and booking trips.

I stayed for a night here on 10th Oct, I booked a sea view studio room and got room no 8 which had a lovely glass front so I could look around the bay. The room was very clean and comfortable and the bathroom was a good size with a sky light. There was also the use of a barbecue... More
