The rooms were clean and tidy. The room is dated, but you have everything you need. They have out of season rates. There is very good wifi and sky in the room. Pleanty of parking and check out the Thai restaurant across the road.

Very clean and tidy room. Minimal road noise. Very friendly host. Plenty of off street parking, which can be seen from rooms. My only negative, the hardest bed I’ve ever slept on. Within walking distance to a lot of amenities.

Good welcome. Spacious unit & very well equipped. Oven microwave and stove top. Very clean. Highly recommend. Value for money. 5 minute drive to centre. Fascinating Penguin colony 10 mins by car. Well worth a visit.
