A great motel, within walking distance to shops. There is a great seafood shop up the road, an ice cream shop, restaurants and more. The staff are A1 will try to help in any way they can. Rooms are a good size and well kept. Only complaint "WiFi not very good".

Great location, on the strand, close to everything (bars, restaurants, supermarket, long walks on the strand!), on site parking and free internet; and above all a host that could not be nicer. The rooms have everything you need for a short stay, and if you're lucky (I was!) you'll get one on the 2nd floor with a view (the rooms...

I recently stayed at the Strand Motel for 16 days while participating in the biennial sculpture event - Strand Ephemera. I would like to thank John & Janet, and their very welcoming and efficient staff for making my stay an extremely pleasant and relaxing experience.

We only had 2 days here and wished we had more. Denise greeted us on arrival and gave us a choice of rooms, even though we had booked. The room was very clean and bright. Right on the Strand overlooking the waterfront and no traffic noise to worry about. Facing the beautiful waterfront. Washing facilites good.

As I didn't want too spend much on accomodation I chose to stay here. It was everything we expected. The Studio was small, with a very small balcony with a table and 2 chairs. everything worked and it was clean. The bed was comfortable . There is a large Supermarket and also cafes and take aways close by.
