Travelled to the area for business. Lady at the front counter was awesome and very informative. The rooms although a little dated were great and roomy enough for up to two people. As mentioned the decor probably needs a spruce up but all good.

We arrived on Australia Day which meant we were the only guests and had the best room! The accommodation - on 2 floors - was amazing with full facilities and a lovely outside BBQ. The owners were very friendly and helpful and gave us a display of beautiful birds which they were feeding. Definitely recommended.

Owners were very welcoming from arrival, showed us to our rooms which was nice. Rooms were spacious, clean, modern and well furnished etc. The location and view was also fantastic, with views over the ocean/bay from the upstairs rooms, and only a 5 minute walk to the buzzing town. Would stay again.

An excellent spot to stay with lots of things to see. There are plenty of nice places to eat - our favourite is the Wharf Restaurant, but there are lots more to find. A walk along the Boardwalk was recommended and was very pleasant.
