We have been frequenting this coffee shop for the past 18 months. At times the quality of the food and service has been less than desireable. This morning we had breakfast and for the 1st time we received what can only be described as "silver customer service". Thankyou Molly for restoring our faith in the hospitality industry and we are privileged to have you working in our town ♡ Barb n Ian

Stayed here Two weeks ago for one night. The room could use a really good spring clean. The bed was clean and comfortable. Nice cold aircon!! The blonde lady in the office was quite rude and unwelcoming, disappointing as the rest of the staff were great! Put it down to her having a bad day but she was equally rude the next day. The adjoining cafe was a nice surprise, great decor and the food was delicious, the eggs benni well worth a second visit!! The cafe staff (a huge thumbs up) very friendly and welcoming! I will be back when passing through again, just hope your office lady is in a happier mood.

Booked at Sails through Agoda. Received a confirmation that the booking was successful amd money deductes from my account. Arrived at sails and no one was there. Called the contact number and was informed no rooms were available. The woman was very rude and unapologetic. Sounded like she was at a party and couldnt care less. Yes i booked through a 3rd party but it is the Motels responsibility to keep there availabilities up to date. Poor administration resulting into having to find accomadation last minute.

Still a lovely spot. Good coffee, open at 630am so if you want to have breakfast and get going early you can. The eggs Benedict is good, the bacon is excellent, the hollandaise sauce could be hotter. Apart from that all good, the smoothies are still excellent
