The staff greeted us and were absolutely helpful with what we needed. The lady we met were super friendly and helpful to us. The room was really nice and clean with everything you could wish for in a room. Microwave, tv, several mirrors and comfy beds. I would definetly stay there again, and recommend it to others!! :D

Comfortable walking distance to several quality restaurants , hotels and cafe's - over the road from the walking track that follows the beach - swimming at both the beach and motel... More

Wifi ok but had to keep logging on-bit of a pain. Pool looked good but didn't try it. Near to restaurants, few shops & beach. Rate about average... More

Good value motel in a convenient location, but what a pity they didn't service our room, and we were there for three nights! Otherwise, the room had everything we needed; unfortunately they were having trouble with the wi fi so we didn't have that for the first day, but once it worked, it was OK.

Let me firstly reply to your heading "Room not serviced". We service all our Motel rooms. We do not service our self-contained apartments, which you stayed in and at no time did you request any service. Secondly we weren't having trouble with the WIFI. You were advised at the time of booking that the Internet ,not WIFI, was being worked... More

Rooms were large with plenty of space and everything we needed for our stay. The location is excellent, opposite the beach and right in the midst of all the great... More

It was a cheap motel that we used as a quick stopover because it was close to the pub. That is all. Busy tourist road outside, a bit musty smelling with automatic air fresheners everywhere. Late 90's decor. No car parks assigned to rooms, so good luck securing a spot. We had an old couple stomping around all night in... More
