“Well priced value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

Lovely lady who met us on arrival. Free laundry powder and cheap washing/driers. Water pressure was awful, but the room was clean and the beds were comfortable. It's not modern, but for $80 a night it was excellent value.

Stayed August 2013, traveled with friends

Thank you for your review and positive comments. I was surprised you thought the water pressure wasn't to your satisfaction. Our showers deliver 7 -8 litres per minute, which should give a decent shower without wasting too much water.

Lovely staff, great location, can't fault it! I would certainly recommend for anyone to stay here! Has a pool and a spa, and one day we were running late for a tour and they even cleaned our breakfast dishes!

Nice clean and comfortable motel with everything we needed.Very good value and handy for the great beach. In a quiet road away from traffic.
Wish we had stayed longer .
Also recommend the river walk starting from near the Treaty house, it takes about an hour to the Falls.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs have there own decks

For a poorly decorated 80s prison cell the price was definitely too high. Not only this but there was no privacy and we could clearly hear EVERY sound of the family in the adjoining room. And the queen bed requested turned out to be a single in one corner and a double in the other. Not impressed and do not recommend

Really enjoyed our 4 nights here in January 2013. Reasonable price for the time of year, it is a very clean and quiet motel just off the main road but only short walk from the beach. Nice pool area too.
