Glenbrook, Australia
Reviewed 19 April 2015

An excellent, well priced establishment with kitchen facilities. The property overlooks the Bay with the upstairs rooms all having lovely views. The downstairs rooms also have water views. Kitchens are excellent and a bonus as restaurants in Pahia seemed quite expensive. Beds very comfortable. Spotlessly clean.

We stayed 3 nights, Outstanding views, close to restaurants and beach. Room and facilities good and clean. Very relaxing. Only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer. Our fault not the motel. Plenty to do. Take a trip to Cape Reinga and 90 mile beach, superb!
