“Decent backpacker accommodation - above average private rooms”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2008

I stayed in a private room in the backpacker "wing" of the motel. The room itself was modern and clean, and had a TV, which is a real luxury for a backpacker hostel! However, there was no heating, so the room was pretty chilly. There are separate male and female shared bathrooms (a definite plus), but the shared kitchen and lounge areas weren't very big - probably not very nice to use when the hostel is full. Also, I did feel that the kitchen was in need of modernisation. All in all it's pretty good for a backpackers.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2008

Nice location on the edge of town and just across the road from the wharf. Staff very friendly and helpful with information about the area. Website gives the impression that you will get individual huts but this isn't so - just a run of the mill motel so seemed a bit expensive. It was nice to get a balcony with outside seating. Cleaning required a bit more effort ! BBQ Hut and pool looked nice but we didn't use. Would be happy to stay here again but would probably try somewhere first.

  • Liked — Location / Friendly staff
  • Disliked — Not quite clean enough !
  • Stayed February 2008, traveled as a couple
