We thought we had booked The Whales tail which looked just what we wanted from the pictures. Upon arrival we were put in The West coast motel.
Pros - it was very clean & the bathroom was modern with a good shower, lots of hot water.
Cons - the rooms had paper thin walls, we could here everything the people beside & above us did. The noise of the water running in the down pipe was loud, not good in a rain forest. The bed was really hard & uncomfortable. The fridge had a really loud motor. The motel also has lights all across the front which are on permanently, these shine right into your room all night. Heating, well it is either on full or off!
View of the harbour is good & the staff were friendly. However it was not what we hoped for, sorry.
