Do not give your Credit card details !! The people of this motel are scammers. They will charge your credit card without your concent & for their own made up reasons. DO NOT STAY HERE, YOU WILL BE RIPPED OFF!!

Stayed here for three nights and found the owner very rude, unfriendly, unwelcoming and had no people skills what-so-ever. My experience at this motel has taught me a great lesson. The lesson being to take photos before staying in any accommodation otherwise you could be ripped off and charged without any evidence or invoices as proof. I STRONGLY recommend that...

As stated in our response below others of your group have commented on how much they enjoyed their stay and that they will be back. It is a shame that you have chosen to jump on the bandwagon with the other of your group in venting on the motel. Those who incurred cleaning charges were informed at the beginning of...

Yet again another example of blatant mis-use of this site. We are actually somewhat affronted by your venting on this site in a fit of pique. There were two sets of persons within your group whose conduct and attitude was downright disrespectful, inconsiderate and ignorant. You have lied by omission here. We note that you have not discussed the drunken...

From having to press the buzzer as the main entrance was locked was not a good first impression. Then to be told off and had to pay for 2 nights instead of 1 was the start of our family experience. This set the tone and I was not a happy customer. The owner in my opinion was quite rude and...

We take exception to this review. IT IS REGRETTABLE THAT THIS CUSTOMER HAS CHOSEN THIS SITE TO VENT HER MIS-DIRECTED ANGER. The guest's booking was part of a wedding party. We dealt only with the bride & these rooms were booked for some months in advance. To our knowledge she disseminated all the information to another in the family who...

This customer is a perfect example of ‘no good deed goes unpunished’. We utterly reject this tirade. We bent over backwards to accommodate this woman – the service she received was above & beyond the call, and this is the thanks we get. Her booking was made weeks in advance. 2 days prior to arrival a family member arrived in...

A nice size unit that was clean and tidy and had all that we needed. A bonus was free wifi and Sky sports. Easy access to get your gear into the rooms. Perfect just for a place to stay while doing activities around the town.

This motel is a little pricy for what you get. It is a place to sleep and little more than that. Management is very nice and helpful in suggesting things to do and see. the motel is clean and well located.

The only motel I have ever stayed at that didn't provide milk to make a cup of tea. Cheap outside furniture inside. Rotting wood around the shower. Staff not very friendly. Silly on-line booking system. Pricey. Poor wifi. But: Comfortable beds. Seemed clean.

Very expensive for what you get would only stay again if they reviewed the room rates. Small TV for the size of the room. Great Diner a couple of doors down for coffee. Handy to Oceanz for fresh seafood.
