“Greathosts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

Great location to shops etc and the venue for our event and excellent hosts. Rooms were ideal for the groups needs and we have stayed here before. Service from hosts are awesome can not thank Trish and Jim enough. The backpackers/bar that was a street over had an event on all weekend which was a little noisy at night for the families on the top level. Would stay again though :)

Room Tip: Rooms on the lower level are quieter if there is a big event at any of the bars in King street (the...

Trish and Jim were perfect hosts. Unit was clean large and quiet. As I was only able to stay one night I did not have the time to have a dip in the inviting pool. I enjoyed the location with a lovely short walk to the beach. I certainly look forward to returning soon.

Not quite smack in the middle of town, but within walking distance, this place is pleasant enough although there's little point in a balcony that overlooks a car park and building next door. Rooms are spacious and the nice touch was to have all the towels folded as little works of art. I like the fact that the hot water was full pressure and we were "given" 200 mb of data to play with. It shouldn't be on a quota and that's why they don't get full points...

This is one of those two story set ups without a lift so if you have heavy luggage, you might want to ask for a ground floor room. I also imagine parking would be at a premium if the place was full...

Limited tv - if it's a wet day.

The kitchenette was complete with electric fry pan and hot plates pots etc.

There's a nice Pool area and spa with barbecue although the area, spa and pool ain't big..

I would stay here again and to me, that's the test.

We enjoyed our 2 night stay in this cozy and comfy motel. The owner could not have been nicer or more helpful. She was great about giving us information about the area, directions and times of various activities. Our room was immaculate and had a very nice bright,updated bathroom and well appointed kitchen. Another welcoming feature were the way the towels and tissues were so creatively displayed. No attention to our comfort went unnoticed. The beds had electric mattress pads to make us comfy and a wide screen TV to enjoy. It was a quiet, restful and highly enjoyable stay.

Although the hotel staff was quite friendly, and the location is good, if you'd actually like to sleep before sometime in the early morning, go someplace else. there is a LOUD LATE NIGHT disco that pumps until ALL hours behind the motel (and I expect all others in the immediate area). It was horrifying to come back from dinner and hear an unrelenting thwump-thwump-thwump disco beat. ear plugs were no help. the room WAS clean, i'll give it that but the small studios are literally shoeboxes -- not bad for a quick layover but for anything longer you'll feel like you're in jail.

Room Tip: if you must stay here, get as close to the front as possible.

A warm welcome was given and with the information about the local area, we were ready to enjoy the different activities on offer. The room was very comfortable and clean. Although we were working to a budget, the extras provided helped to make our stay even more enjoyable. We would certainly recommend this motel to anyone travelling in the area.
