My partner and I (plus several other family members at different times) stayed for a week in Garden Unit 5 over the Christmas period.
From my first contact when booking the motel, and right throughout our stay, the service from staff was outstanding. The most amazing instances of this were: - being allowed to shift the furniture to suit our needs: arriving back at the motel on Christmas afternoon to find a gift box that included a home baked (by the manager) Christmas cake, Christmas crackers and sweet and savoury snacks; having my laundry done for me and returned to the Unit ironed and folded! (as I wasn't able to do it before we left for the day because the laundry wasn't available until after 10am to avoid disturbing other guests); the manager sharing fresh plums with us that she had been given by a friend. Wow!
The unit had recently been partially refurbished (with an up-to-date bathroom) and was clean and tidy. The bedrooms are small and the kitchen does need some attention, in particular the contents of the kitchen (crockery, utensils, pots etc). However, it was good to have a full sized oven and fridge when 4 people were staying for a week. And the bedroom/kitchen issues were minor issues really.
There were BBQ's available in the garden area just outside our door and this was a nice place to sit to read, or have a drink in the late afternoon/evening.
The setting of the motel is lovely - right next to the beach, and the sunsets are beautiful.
We would definitely be happy to stay at the Sunset Motel again.
