Walked in off the street looking for two rooms. The owner greeted us and showed the two rooms which were good. Very friendly welcome with a lot of info provided. Both rooms clean and fresh, linen towels good but no heating. Electric fans had to be plugged in.
The following morning the owner allowed us to park for the day at no charge

A delightful motel, with friendly, helpful hosts. We stayed in the highest room, with great views over the bay, and a large balcony to sit out and enjoy the sights. Good location just behind the main street, comfortable bed, huge bathroom - what more could you need?

Room Tip: Room 8. Owners will help carry your bags.

The hosts were lovely! They even carried our bags up a couple of flights of stairs to the unit, and offered to bring them down in the morning.

The 2 bedroom unit had views from all rooms - kitchen, lounge and 2 bedrooms it was well positioned. I booked this unit on the internet cheap and it meet my expectations. It was clean and accomadated us all (5 adults and an 8 month old).

It was also a easy walk to the main street and wharf which was great. It was definitely value for money and clean - no complaints from me!

We stayed in the penthouse studio which has a lovely covered deck facing out to the sea.
Although you have to walk up a few steps, the view is worth it. The kitchen is minimally equipped and as there is no kitchen sink, dishes must be done in the bathroom. However it is just a short walk to a large selection of waterfront restaurants.

We enjoyed our recent 4 nights in a 2 bedroom unit. The unit was very spacious and looked like it has been recently renovated. The kitchen is well equipped with utensils though the fridge freezer was very small and there is only a 2 burner hotplate but is adequate with the electric fry pan and microwave. In our 2 week travel this motel unit was the first to have a saucepan bigger enough (just) to cook pasta or rice for 4 people.. The motel is in an excellent location, one street back from the water and just a short walk from the main shopping area and wharf and a slightly longer walk to a swimming beach. Whilst there are buildings in front you are up high enough to have an excellent view across the bay especially when sitting at the table or on the balcony. The only negatives were the car parking is very tight and the laundry is only open until 6pm .
