Apart from a cabin in the caravan park over the hill you have little else to choose from. We stayed one night in a motel style room - with ensuite. It was just OK. The main drawback was the north facing windows - could not open them to get some airflow, so it was a bit of a hot box, This should not be too difficult or expensive to fix? Being in a Telecom black spot we were also irked not to have internet nor mobile phone connectivity - but it looks like the cable layers are on to this. The restaurant was adequate - you shouldn't expect much more for a remote location I guess, without paying a lot more. How about more of the seafood that must be caught nearby? What a great location - we enjoyed the whole East Coast experience
