Booked at short notice, cheaper than hotel, near the beach, but quiet. Air con worked well. Guy on reception was a straight talking Aussie, who Todd its the Rulz, then on second encounter, showed his soft heart in showing us the possom that lives in the vicinity. All in all a small clean adequate room for a one night stay

We stayed here lately and thought it was very good value, clean, ample parking and generally pleasant. The rooms were of an appropriate size, TV with a full complement of channels, bathroom was fine and location was perfect. The manager was a real character and was good fun. I wish all hoteliers were like him. 10/10
