Great accomodation in an awesome location for us. Absolutely love being able to go for an evening stroll to the playground and beach after dinner or even better, grab some fish and chips and from the shop thats on your way to the beach.

We booked three nights accommodation for our anniversary. Our first impression of the albatross was quite disappointing. The rooms are small and really do need a makeover, as they are pretty tired and dated. In saying that we were pleased to find they are very clean, the bed was

The location was good, easy access to all amenities

The room was rather small, the bed was very uncomfortable (we could feel the springs coming right through) - it may be time to replace mattresses. No AC in the room, only a wall heater panel and a plug in very noisy heater :-(

The view across the estuary was lovely as were the walls around the estuary and beach. The motel was very quiet and close to many restaurants. Staff were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this motel as a relaxing place to stay.

Hi, do the room 35 end of upstairs or other non-facing main road room have fully equipped kitchen, we love to cook by ourselves. See some feedback said some kitchen equipment have been damage or missed, I want to ensure this point. On the other hand, do the pests issue have been fixed? We scared the ants and cockroach. Thank you.
We have a few delux studio and one bedroom units that are not facing the road and with our new wall the noise has been dramatically reduced. Our kitchenette in the rooms are not set up for doing any degree of large cooking. Any seafood or strong smelling food including spices are not permitted in our units and extra charges will apply if found on departure. Our entire complex has in place a strict pest control system in place and sprayed on the recommendation of our pest control company. you may have read some older comments and as we are fairly new owners only put this system into place when we took over in July 2017.
