Peaceful motel right on the water.Friendly,welcoming staff and spotlessly clean rooms with modern facilities and plenty of space.Close to shops and restaurants.Bathroom although very trendy is not for the modest as the door has intentional gaps at the top and bottom and there are glass bricks near the shower. Outside balconies downstairs are very close to each other too so prepare to make friends with your neighbors!

Thanks for the great review.
You summed up our lovely place perfectly. A perfect, peaceful waterfront setting with friendly and welcoming staff. Offering spotlessly clean rooms with modern facilities, yet within walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants.
We look forward to hosting you again some time soon.
Regards.

Had a great two day stay here. The location is great and if you can get a unit with a balcony with a water view you’ll be pleased you did. Modern fitting, very smart decor. The small kitchen is very well equipped and cleverly situated behind sliding doors. One of the best layouts we’ve seen. Servicing of the room was excellent. Staff helpful and friendly

Far enough away from busy strip, but close enough to walk. The perfect location with water views. Rooms are generous in size, great little kitchenette, love the separate toilet to bathroom and the bed was super comfortable. Top marks to the cleaners as the place was spotless.

Peaceful and quite, scenery was amazing, rooms are worth the cost especially family rooms. Walking distance to restaurants. Staff is super nice as well. Make sure you have early Morning walks, it's really nice.
