We (including our fur baby German Shepard) have stayed here 6 or so times in the last 6 months. The view is superb, the people are lovely and the foods great. Rooms are always very comfortable and perfectly clean. Fur baby genuinely welcomed. Highly recommended!!

Yes it does have a great view but with the highway at the front gate there was a lot of traffic noise, no door to the bathroom, lacked basic cutlery/crockery unless all you wanted was a cup. We were tired after a long drive so endured the overnight stay and early start but would not stay again. The rooms need a refresh to justify the price.

The owner is a nutter. He was very rude and kicked out one asian lady and white caucasian gentleman. She threw the ladies credit card on to their faces and left. Poor couple had no choice but to leave.

This is absolute rubbish. This wasn’t us. Sorry, but you must have wires crossed - indicated by your gender confusion & grammar. I’m confident our guests will disregard or hopefully pray for you. We trust you seek help.

Good motel, within walking distance to the beach. From the room and the terrace there is a beautiful view downhill to the bay. Clean room, but not very spacious. Free wifi. We had some ants in the room, so we had to store the food in the fridge. The price was very resonable (149 AUD). Free parking at the backside of the motel, free internet, friendly personnel. The motel is directly at the Pacific Highway (A1), but this was not a problem; the room was quiet.
