The motel is situated on the main road into town but traffic noise was not a problem. A fish & chip restaurant is a short walk away but you will need to drive into town for cafes, restaurants.and shops.
We were warmly greeted by the owner who gave us information on the local area. Our room had been recently refurbished and windows at both ends of the room made it light and airy. Patio doors led out onto a secluded decked area which had a double seat plus attached table. My wife and I sat outside and enjoyed the afternoon sun while having a drink of wine. The bed was very comfortable.
The bathroom was large and had a roll-top bath. A large separate shower area in the opposite corner was enclosed by a tiled wall and curtain. The shower head was fixed and offered adjustable spray settings. Everything was modern and worked well.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. We would stay there again if in the area.
