Mary provided very nice, friendly and prompt service and was very welcoming. The rooms were nice and scrupulously clean. They were also very quiet. I will certainly stay here again on my next trip. The Royal Albatross Center was certainly worth a visit, as was the short climb to the Soldier's Memorial.

This Motel has spacious rooms and good beds. You have basic cooking utensils at your disposal and there's gear to make some tea and coffee. The bathroom and room decoration is a bit dated.

We had to put my parents here last minute as the motel we booked turned out to not fit everyone in our large group. My parents were very satisfied with the stay.

Thank you for you lovely review, Gerrald and I are so pleased you enjoyed your stay, yes the view is certainly lovely from all the units esp the top floor. When cleaning we do have trouble some days to clean and not just sit and enjoy.

A beautiful large room. the bed was very comfortable and the view was terrific. Also had a lovely kitchen area. Only problem was that the shower ran out of hot water without any warning. I would still reccomend this motel, but limit your bath and shower time
