We arrived on a cold rainy windblown evening, to be warmly greeted by a friendly receptionist who was happy to share some local knowledge. We ended up taking her advice to dine at the Saucy Chef which was excellent. Our room was modern, clean and cosy and took very little time to warm up. A good heater is always handy... More

“There is the main motel complex plus 'cottages' that are two bedroom. Great for longer stays and very quiet.”

“I live in the country, and a quiet road, so find some rooms in the motel quite noisy as it's on State Highway 1. So I ask for a one bedroom unit (rather than studio) with bedroom away from road, which solves this.”
