Thank you for bringing up those issues. All motels have peak periods, and our rates , as well as our neighbouring motels, are determined by the market at the time, it is then your choice to come then or not. Our complimentary breakfast, where we ask for a small donation, raised over $400 that went to the Mayoral appeal for the recent Tathra bushfires. We thank you for your donation and are sorry you felt it was on the meagre side.

We are within walking distance to the restaurants and clubs. Some of the restaurants do close on certain nights during the week but there will be a couple open each night.

"if going by motorcycle tell them and they will assign a room at the rear. Which is on level ground and next to your door."
"Rooms at the back would be quieter but the ones at the front are higher and have balconies"
"Top floor for water views"
