Reviewed 29 August 2016

We had a great long weekend at the motel. Nice and quiet, very comfortable bed, great position and cool boats to look at. The shower was over the bath which I don't like, and the water pressure was fairly low, but most places are the same these days. We would definitely stay again.

From the minute we walked into reception we were impressed. The greeting we received was polite, friendly, helpful and enthusiastic.
