The room was large and very well presented however the bathroom was tiny! Barely enough room to swing a towel to dry yourself! This establishment offers free wi-fi, however in the room we had it was... More

We spent four days at the Ocean Front Motel recently and found the the rooms were clean and comfortable sleeping at night to the sound of the waves breaking on the rocks below. The sunrise over the ocean was amazing always something to look at from the balcony.

2nd time we have stayed there. Just love it. Walk to shops. Fantastic sitting in private spa overlooking the ocean with a glass of wine. Peaceful and relaxing. Top floor are the ones with spas. Very comfortable bed.

Myself and my partner thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Staff was friendly and wasn't a problem to help in anyway. The views and room was excellent. Our stay wasn't long enough was so hard to leave to go to work on the Sunday. But we will come back. Highly recommend this motel. Sharon and Dave

We stayed in a ground floor hot tub room and were a little disappointed with our stay Unfortunately the hot tub is definitely not worth the extra money they charge for the room. Very old.
