I hate to give this place a terrible review, as the room was fine. However there is a bar next door that blasts music all night long, and very loud and probably drunken patrons that join in the chorale. We didn't sleep for the two nights we were there. We were there on a Friday and Saturday night so I... More

Our stay was very pleasant and the staff very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the outdoor area and a chance to swim in the pool. Quiet location and close to everything. The bathroom was very spacious.

We stayed for two nights in this delightful motel which was close to the town amenities yet quiet and convenient. The owners and staff could not have been more welcoming and friendly and they made sure we had an excellent stay. Nothing was too much trouble so we could not recommend it highly enough.

We stayed at this motel as we have in the past, Edelweiss continues to excel itself, in its presentation, friendliness of staff and owners, the motel is an older style, within walking distance to shops and amenities a easy stroll to restaurants and such. Their policy on sustainability was a delight to see, as frequent travellers we try to reduce... More

Bright cheery place literally steps away from the beach. A few minutes stroll brings you straight into the town centre. Very clean and tidy; all you need is right there. Friendly proprietors will answer your questions and get you set up straight away. Great staff, rooms were always cleaned soon after we left for the day's activities. Enjoyed the pool... More

Stayed for 4 nights. Easy to find, close to the foreshore and harbour area. I had booked a standard room, however I was given a free upgrade to a larger one. A pleasant surprise. Excellent kitchenette with every thing needed. The previous guests must have stashed something in the fridge that smelt almost dead. The owners were doing their best... More
