Found the motel to be very comfortable, nice spa in room. Owners very friendly and helpful, and a short walk to the shops and restaurants and beaches. Had breakfast in the dining room next morning..The only thing was the motel was a bit dated.

Lovely motel with spacious queen room. Motel is close to shops, restaurants and beach, and in a quiet area. Unfortunately no heating so it was fortunate we took our own. Our room had one queen bed and two single bed so ideal for family. We Would definitely stay there again.
