Had two nights in a sea-facing room with superb views over the car park to the ocean. Room was spotless, shower worked perfectly and the operators were extremely helpful. Laundrette worked welll and restaurants within walking distance,

This place is a bit dated and funky, but overall, I found it charming, comfortable and clean. There's a few sections of the motel that are newer than others. We stayed in the older section with a shared bath. The bathroom was a bit far away from the room, so if that is important to you, make sure you check... More

What a location! If you book a Seaview motel room, that is exactly what you get, with the added bonus of a verandah and chairs for sitting outside your room to enjoy the view. Close to the main shopping and eateries on the island, makes this location even better. Good price, clean and good staff.

I booked a room in the guest house, with shared bathroom, because the rate was better, and so not surprisingly the room was dated and a little worn - but very clean and comfortable. Alana at reception is amazing and when I sought her advice on what I should do about getting to and from the airport to pick up... More

The best thing about this motel is the location. The sea view room was tired. Needs a make over. Bed was fair, pillows hard, bring your own, Virtually no room between the double bed and the window. Smallest TV mounted high in the corner .Carpet worn and stained, could feel the smooth edge tacks with your feet where the lino... More

We only stayed one night, though the building is old, but the bed is very good sleep, not uncomfortable, the room upon check-in can see the sea, so a whole is very comfortable, although the breakfast to 10 dollars , but because the scenery as well as the office staff collusion good service, so I think this is recommended.

We arrived late after a long day on the island but we were lucky to find the reception still open. The operator was extremely friendly and helpful (e.g. with regard to dining tips). The room we got had an ocean view and was clean. We had a shared bathroom which was equally clean. In general, the motel has some charme... More

We had a room with a great view looking over the ocean. It was a 3.5 star room, and I suggest it is at the top of this star rating, by country standards, after all, this is in affect, a country town on an Island. Some may say the room needed a makeover, but I don't expect this from a... More

We checked into this motel on 28/12/13 for a 4 night sojourn. Upon check in the host was agreeable, pleasant and welcoming. We were given room 3 as our abode and found it to be somewhat dated, tired and in need of a freshening up. The room was serviced daily but I must add a caveat, they do not hoover... More

Friendly front desk, The place is clean and well cared for, but the place is a little old and the room was designed for a double bed, with a king bed in the room I could not walk down one side of the bed without dragging the drapes on the full length windows open. There was no cooking in the... More
