Booked a room for two nights for my wife, young daughter and myself and wasn’t disappointed.
Room was really comfortable and had a gt view over the bay. Staff were really friendly and helpful.

Dear Zairin, thank you for the review. We are sorry to hear that you had issues with the wifi, as the motel is fully occupied the wifi does slow down with all the download traffic. We look forward to seeing you again.
I highly recommend this motel. Well priced, quiet, roomy and so clean and free unlimited wifi. Everything you need and very close to town. Only a short walk onto the waterfront for bars, restaurants and shopping.
Thank Jess B

Thanks for the great review.
You summed up our lovely place perfectly. A perfect, peaceful waterfront setting with friendly and welcoming staff. Offering spotlessly clean rooms with modern facilities, yet within walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants.
We look forward to hosting you again...More
Had a great two day stay here. The location is great and if you can get a unit with a balcony with a water view you’ll be pleased you did. Modern fitting, very smart decor. The small kitchen is very well equipped and cleverly situated...More

Good day Stella, We have a family King Studio but this can only sleep 4. It has a King Bed and two singles. We can put up a trundler bed. We also have the same setup but in the more modern suite which is the Premier Waterfront with Patio. Feel free to call us and we can discuss with you or alternatively take a look on our web page.
