This was the second time we stayed here with several years in between. The motel is basic, but clean and offers all you need for an overnight or a longer stay. The units are self contained and clean. Our unit had a good and FREE WiFi connection. We'd happily come back any time

There was a full kitchen and comfortable two seater couch. The motel overlooks the sea in the distance. We only stayed one night but the motel would be ideal for... More

Stayed 3 nights here and it was very peaceful. Kitchen had full stove and oven , microwave and plenty of utensils. Only downside was no window in the bathroom so took towels outside to air and dry. Minor negative. Lovely walking track at end of street which went for Kms around the bay Would stay here again

We stayed in a 2 level unit with the bedroom below and living area above. The unit was clean and well appointed. The young man on reception was friendly and the wifi worked well. The balcony had a good view over the coast.

Located in a quiet residential area 2.5ks fron Center of town not really a walking distance. Partially renovated sometime ago with different types of accommodation from the 1st floor you get a bit of a view. Small convoluted bathroom good living area and kitchenette.Bedroom ok bed a bit soft. Reasonably priced and very friendly and helpful managers.
