We went for breakfast. Food was basic, eggs Benedict and bacon and eggs took 20 minutes to serve and were luke warm. Ordered fruit toast because we were still hungry, that took another 10 minutes.

A place to sleep or if you get lucky one night at the pub. But not a place to be inspired by. We stayed 3 nights and the staff were good and helpful. The best thing about it is that the beach is right in front of the hotel. It needs to be renovated.

Thanks for your comments and yes we are building a new motel which will be completed in 12 months. It will be 100 meters north of our current position and still on the beach front. It will be 3 levels and have a pool on the roof. Very exciting times ahead.

The rooms were OK but they do need some work done to them. It appears that the motel is doing some renovations so hopefully this will progress to the rooms too. But...

We stayed for one night only in a double room which was exceedingly small for two people. The upholstered chairs were so badly stained that one was reluctant to use. Other furnishings were in extremely poor state of repair including missing door and draw handles as we as holes on the inside of the front door. Did not appear to...
