We stayed here for one night and received a friendly welcome from the owner the bed was comfortable and had an electric blanket and there was parking right outside our unit. The motel is not only close to town but also you can walk to the beach.

The motel is an older building but I found it added to the charm, a little like staying at nanna's. Our room was very quiet and I would highly recommend staying... More

We stayed here in April the rooms are clean, spacious and well equipped, with comfortable beds. Could do with a refurbishment. As previously stated the parking is very tight but overall would recommend this accommodation for an overnight stay.

Kitchen was good size with oven, fridge, microwave and could be separated by sliding screen. Lovely bathroom - one of the best we have experienced. At... More
