The motel is very convenient to town in general, and more specifically to the jazz club,where I was going. Had a small issue with the TV, but it was promptly taken care of. Friendly owner, pleasant stay.

Nice room, very friendly owner, very clean and tidy. Good room service. No hesitation in recommending to travellers for short or long stay. Shower and toilet nice and clean. Perhaps could have provided a non-slip mat for the elderly

Nice room, not expensive, very friendly owner, very clean and tidy. Close to pubs shops etc. No traffic noise. Good place to stop when driving the coast road. We were able to walk to the local RSL club for dinner, also close to other pubs and eateries.

Practically no sound proofing due to connecting doors between rooms. As a result we were able to hear every cough, every venture to the toilet made by the man in the room next to us. The most unbearable part, however, was that we could hear every word from the tv, which he had on until midnight, as well as the...

It's not the very small rooms that was so bad - that can be overlooked if the room is OK but these rooms are very tired & in desperate need of some work & a good clean especially the bathroom. The bathroom seemed bigger than the room itself! There was mould in the corner of the room, the window ledge...

The room was very very small & the noise from the surrounding rooms plumbing was a nightmare. Vehicles are parked very close to the rooms & people leaving &...
