“Rainy day sanctuary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Having arrived on a rainy day after a long drive it was good to, once again, be welcomed by Stu and relax in a comfortable clean room for a good nights sleep to recharge. The gym around the corner is free for visitors (just take your key to the gym reception and town is a short walk, A great stay every time

Room Tip: Family rooms at the back are great for larger groups staying

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Stayed just the one night with work but would have liked to stay longer. When you first walk in you think its a bit dated but that's the only negative. I stay in motels 3 weeks out of 4 with work and I wish they put me places like this more often. The room was clean, spacious, good size dining table. The bathrooms are obviously new, good water pressure. The best thing for me though was the kitchen. Good size fridge WITH a freezer, and a free standing oven. I like cooking my own meals so having a oven was just a God send. Great place for kids with a playground out the back, pool looked inviting, shame I stayed in winter, but great for summer. Well maintained grounds too. Would def stay again.

A bit of an older type motel with dated rooms but clean and tidy and spacious all the same. Great swimming pool and a small kids play area. Pricing is good. Handy to town just a short walk. Beaches just a short drive also.

Stayed September 2013, travelled with friends

We stayed in a studio room for one night. It was a good size, very clean and had a comfortable bed. Good sized salt water pool for a swim at the end of a long driving day. Moden bathroom with good water pressure in the shower. Free internet.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2014

A nice place to stay with a large sitting area and 2 separate rooms. We had a room down the back, so it was also very quiet. Nice pool and friendly staff. A short drive into the main town. Plenty of suitcase and clothing storage also if you are staying for awhile.

I stayed here for four days with my family. Very good quality unit, quiet and well furnished. The pool and amenities were good. The owner mildly put us off by greeting us and asking if we had thought about our carbon footprint, but everything from then on was spot on. I agree that it could do with air conditioning though , the 20 degree nights were a bit much to take.
