We stayed there last Christmas & had a wonderful time & so, have booked in again for this year. The stairs were a problem for me (heart problems) ... no lift, & so this year we have booked a ground floor room. We also discovered a great Chinese rest. who delivered (details in room).

Stayed at this property as it came very highly recommended by a friend who often stays there. Yes it is a budget motel type location, the room is of a spacious size, the bed comfortable, the bathroom has great water pressure. However what makes this location so amazing is its closeness to the ocean. To be able to sit on... More

I had a room with a view of the ocean and it was just beautiful. The room itself was clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly, helpful, and polite. The shower was great, though sometimes the hot water was a bit slow to arrive. The screen door didn't quite close. Nice quiet location. The surf is very noisy and... More

Thank you for your comments and our sincere apologies. The rooms will be completely refurbished over the next two years however they should be very clean and functional now. Your experience was unacceptable but also not typical. We receive very few complaints with most guests having a wonderful stay and wanting to return. We will take action to ensure the... More

A very convenient type of accommodation for us, as we have toddler, and the bottom units at the back each have a small, secure courtyard attached; perfect for our 2-year-old. We stayed there twice, once at the end of 2014 and again in early 2015. The rooms are nice and large, the beds are quite comfy. However, the rooms ARE... More

If you are looking for a place to unwind, feel comfortable, this is the place. Vicki at reception will help you with picking the right room, and anything you may need. The restaurant is top class. Even the people we forget most times, the cleaning staff were happy and helpful. Don't go past this motel.....great place.

We got a lovely and spacious corner room with windows on two sides.Therefore we had a spectacular view over the Tasman Sea. The room was nicely furnished and very clean. The balcony was furnished wish 2 chairs and a small table which was handy. Notice: There is no elevator (did not bother us), but could be a problem for certain... More

We stayed here overnight in November. The motel is not easy to find, but OK if you have google maps. At least it is not on a main road. The stairs to the units and restaurant are confusing as they go all over the place, but you will work it out. The carpark also has very small spaces, and the... More
