Our room was spacious, well equipped and comfortable. Although we were on the ground floor and had no views of the bay, it was a 2 minute drive to to waterfront. Craig, the owner, was really friendly and very helpful all times. Such a nice guy and definitely the right easy-going personality for running a motel. A special mention should go to the lovely housemaid who offered to make my mother tea and toast in bed as she was sick. Free movies on hand and even bicycles available for those who want to go for a leisurely ride around the bayside. All little extra touches to make this place worth staying.
My only negative would be that there was only one hook for towels yet the room catered for four. The room had a lovely little back patio which could easily have had a little clothes line.
