We chose the busby motel to stay over the new years break. Great choice! Not only was it very competitively priced and just the best location (directly across the road from the beach and 10 minutes from a super selection of restaurants, cafes and bars)...More

It was very good my only comment is that although it says 1 bed sleeps 4 it is very cramped when using for sleeping any more than 2. Sometimes this description turns out more comfortable than others as we visit different resorts.

Comfortable, value for money and a superb beach front location. Friendly, helpful informative staff. Activities in the area plentiful and close to home - one didn’t have to travel miles to see and explore the surroundings. Busby, we are sure to visit again!😄 Thank you

Sorry there is no room for trailers on site. Parking is very limited and restricted to one car per unit. Unfortunately campavans are too tall to get around the building so are also excluded from the site.
