We booked only the day before so were pleased to get accommodation comparatively near the centre of town. Our private room was quite large with two windows and a well equipped kitchen corner. It had adequate en suite bathroom facilities and a huge comfortable bed.
The room was up a flight of outside steps but we parked our car very close so it wasn't too troublesome.
The decor was a bit dated and the shower would have been a tight squeeze for a larger person but the staff were friendly and we enjoyed a lovely walk to picturesque Caroline Bay which was very near the motel.
