Me & my partner thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at ocean front motel. The staff were all very friendly, and the views were absolutely amazing! We stayed in the hot tub & spa room, the hot tub on the balcony is a fantastic idea & is great for relaxing in the afternoon & watching the waves. The room itself... More

First time at the entrance and we are so glad we chose the Ocean Front! First of all the view of the ocean is magnificent! We could see only ocean for as far as the eye can see. We marveled at this view and almost didn't want to leave the room so as not to miss a minute of the... More

Thank you for your review and we are glad that you loved the panoramic view and lulling sounds of the ocean. Also, it was great that you did tear yourself away from the room and enjoyed the entertainment in the town centre (there is something happening most weekends) and wading in the rock pools beneath the motel. We hope you... More

This motel is ok if you are just after a comfortable stay. Don't expect luxury, but you can expect cleanliness. The room we stayed in was on the top floor with a hot tub on the balcony.. The hot tub was great for my partner and I, but I would suggest a little step be put in so people can... More

Thank you for your review. We are glad you found the room comfortable and of course clean. We appreciate your comments regarding the hot tub and will look into providing steps for easier access. All of our rooms have sliding fly screens doors, if they are inadvertently left open bugs will come in. If guests forget to pack insect repellant... More

Booked a ground floor room facing the ocean. Sunrises were a treat especially on the days when there were some cloud on the horizon. 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.
