A simple motel but a good-sized room, balcony with nice view of water, nice breakfast available. A pleasant one km walk along a coastal track in to Kingscote township.Beware that restaurant options in the town are somewhat limited (especially on football awards night in September!).

We stopped here for one night. Very comfortable, clean, spacious and friendly host at reception. Good shower and comfy bed. Great location too on the beach and we could walk to and from the centre of the town. We would recommend this motel.
