Lovely motel. Friendly, helpful staff. Delicious breakfast. The late afternoon cheese and wine were very welcome and all food is nicely presented. The pool and hot tub were a welcome oasis of calm and relaxation. But, and this is a big but, be prepared to walk. The start of the harbour is a good 10 minute walk. Then it's a further 5 minute walk to the pier. And then, if you want to go downtown, it's another 10 minutes. A taxi back from downtown cost us $6 plus tip. Don't discount, it is a great establishment, just be prepared to walk.
