Motel is a close walk to the beach shops and cafes and only a very short walk across the road and up a tiny cul-de-sac to the beach. Room was clean and tidy and had everything you needed. Good value for money. A nice little play area for kids with a couple of tyre swings and a trampoline as well... More

From the moment we walked into the i site building - that was the start of a friendly town. We found our way to this Motel and Steve made us feel most welcome. The unit was most comfortable. Recommend

It's a small motel, only 6 units I think. We stayed in one of the 1 bedroom units and were very happy. It was a good size, tidy and clean, everything we needed. The 1 bedroom units do front the road so there is a little bit of noise, but it's hardly a constant stream of cars going past in... More

Small motel (5 or 6 units) but very well presented, lots of amenities and plenty of room to spread out and relax. Owner Steve is very helpful with information about the town. On site parking is fine and beach is across the road.
