We had a great stay at The Dawson Motel. The room was spotlessly clean and well presented and the location was perfect. An easy walk into town and to the coastal walkway. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

Lovely motel, modern, tasteful, clean, comfortable and with great hosts. Very handy to shops and coastal walkway. Plenty of parking too. Owners have bikes to lend out, which were great - the coastal walkway/cycleway is a must
