The motel is 1 1/2 hours north of Caves Beach. The location is great, once you are there you can walk to shops, beach and Restaurants. The Ferry Wharf is just around the corner and the trip to Nelson Bay is enjoyable. The rooms are air conditioned, have Kitchenettes and a balcony. There is a lovely pool and BBQ area.... More
