Pretty basic accommodation, but everything you needed; reasonable kitchen, bathroom, bed and terrace. Clean. What really made this place special was the pool area which overlooked the estuary, which was lovely. Good BBQ too. There were also Kayaks to use. In a reasonably convenient location- the town, shops and restaurants were walkable but not a very short walk.

We stayed at Shearwater recently, owners and staff were very friendly and welcoming, the rooms are spotless, the pool area is great and has wonderful views of the Estuary on the doorstep. We fully recommend anyone to stay here, value for money, quiet but very close to town for shopping and restaurants, we really enjoyed our time there.

The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The motel is at one end of the town and within walking distance of the shops, restaurants and the harbour. There is also a nice swimming pool and good facilities.

This place is a little gem in an excellent location. What made it special for us was the friendliness and helpfulness of the manager and staff who went out of their way to provide advice. clean, comfortable and roomy wit a good kitchen
