Lovely clean motel with great views. We arrived without a booking and reception was great. The room had a good view across the water, bed was comfy. It was only a short walk to shops and restaraunts. Would stay again.

Checked in early this week after a busy business day found that I could hear the guests in the room next door through adjoining door. I was trying to work and very annoying. Staff found me another room which was excellent. The motel is looking very tired but adequate for the price.
