We found this motel clean, quiet and comfortable and very easy to find. Needed a vehicle because out of the main area of town. Good parking space and hosts very helpful-even folded the washing and placed in the motel when we went out.

We are always happy to help and understand that when you are on holiday and want to go out for the evening, it is a hassle to be messing around waiting for your washing to finish, so always happy to tend to it for our guests. regards Helen...

A friendly welcome, a spacious and clean room with a parking space right in front. The pool was cool and refreshing, the hot tub soothed aching muscles. Right outside is a nature reserve where you can spot some wildlife and amazing sunsets. Walk out the back and just down the road is the beach. What more could you ask for?
