Looking a bit tired now (very grubby carpet in our room) but offers value for money if you just want a reasonably priced place to lay your head overnight. It is motel style with parking right outside your room. You can get a breakfast on site but I didn't try it so can't comment. Rooms are reasonably sized and have... More

This motel was an excellent choice. Not brand new, but had everything we needed: plenty of room in the units, very clean, fantastically comfortable bed, friendly helpful owner, and very reasonably priced. It is an easy walk to the beach and cafes, and has a pool if you feel like a dip. Very good air con in rooms for hot... More

I've previously stayed here over 10 years ago and while the place is showing the wear and tear of time it is still very clean and functional. Friendly and fast check in. We stayed in a deluxe spa room with queen bed. The spa area is actually in the bedroom area with the bathroom separate. This was great as the... More

We stayed here one night in November 2013. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and the room was a good size. However the decor and fittings were extremely dated and showing signs of wear. We can live with that, but the killer issue was the paper thin walls! We needed to be up at 4am and wanted some sleep,... More
