“Had a vistor with me in shower”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Very basic, not enough room to swing a cat. No privacy at all as no sheers at windows so everyone walking past got to look in on you, unless you wanted to sit in the dark with the drapes closed all the time. Shower pressure was good but the crockrache that came in with me,gave me a heck of a turn, as did the long hairs in the shower and the shower door. Not enough room to get out of the bed on the side had to climb over person or wriggle down and get out from the foot of the bed. Would not stay again.
yes there is parking but it appears first in first served. We came back late and had to park in front of some other person unit that was 4 units away from ours.
Washing is sink is not a good look. They did try by leaving a breakfast which looked good.

It's so close to the beach and the different activities offered their. It's also close to a grocery store ( rooms have their own small kitchen area) and to several places to eat and shop. It's super clean and pretty spacious. There is so much to see and do that this is the perfect place to come and sleep and then move on! We loved it!

Stayed one night recently with last minute booking. Had one bedroom unit on floor level (2 levels), rooms and linen clean and adequate, tv, fridge, microwave, kettle in lounge. Provided continental breakfast in price which was good. Good pressure in shower, ranchsliders stack to open giving larger door opening.

Hosts very accommodating with my check in arrangements as I was checking in very late. Host, "biker" friendly given the noise my bike made upon leaving the next morning at 8.30am. I would stay again.

Loved the 25 steps to the beachfront! Café and diary opposite motel. Main town centre also within close walking distance, possibly 50 steps!

The in room blurb talks of this property providing the basics and it does that well. Clean, heaps of hot water and acceptable rooms. The rooms are small and offer no privacy at all. The location is fabulous - just a few steps to the beach in one direction and to town in the other.

With a bit of TLC the property could be so much better. Tidying up the parking area would be a good start and then a general spruce up would do wonders.

Stayed 2N in an upper room with a peak of the beach which was a bonus. Comfortable bed and very peaceful room back from the road. Clean unit with new towels given despite us hanging them up to save the environment. Good shower pressure in bathroom but nowhere to put soap or shampoo. Glasses, mugs and teaspoons provided along with Microwave but no other plates or utensils. Would have liked to wash our breakfast dishes but no d/w liquid and as previous reviewer said, bathroom basin not acceptable/hyienic for such a purpose. Free Wifi available but at tables by the office. Lovely staff who were friendly and welcoming. Thank you.

Fridge was louder than a V8 After putting bunk mattresses onto the bed it was a bit better.Great to have a tea towel but to wash dishes in the bathroom is not good (only tap or sink available)No sky no issue but tv 1- 2 and nearly 3 is poor. Better to have no tv.Very very basic at a not basic price.Stayed in much better for less.

This motel advertises free wifi in all rooms. The first thing was That to guarantee Wi-Fi reception I had to have the more expensive room near the office. This was the only room that they reckoned the Wi-Fi would work. then I was given a $2 voucher which enabled 5 min of Skype time only. I was given another 2 $5 vouchers, that the service was intermittent as well so I gave up.
As having Wi-Fi access was the reason I booked this hotel, I was very disappointed.
