Located very conveniently for our needs close to medical clinic. Unit used has sunny aspect. Pleasant walking routes in 3 directions, with good views of harbour only a minute away. Watch for traffic on exiting at motel entrance, but alternative route is available.

We were very impressed with the space in the studio we had booked. Everything we needed in the kitchen and room to sit comfortably at a table to eat. Good location on main road but still quiet and very comfortable. We will come back.

We shared a one bed roomed unit with lounge bed on the upper level for one night. I booked online and the motel is easy to find. The cost was reasonable for three people. The room was clean and had a spa bath and separate shower box.The manager was really helpful. The disturbing thing (and the Manger did warn us...

The motel room was average in size, but was comfortable, neat and very clean. It is located on a busy road, but there was no traffic noise at night, so we slept very well. The staff were friendly and helpful and suggested a short drive to the restaurant area. Overall, we had a pleasant stay at this motel.

Great location, good facilities, I only stayed for a weekend but it was perfect for what I needed. I would stay here again. Comfy Bed big enough room. Clean and tidy, nice and relaxed staff. Petrol station across the road from accommodation if you need anything.

Despite being on a fairly busy road there was very little noise and was very quiet at night. Everything was very clean. This motel was very well situated for everything we wanted to do and the small pool was very welcome

The hotel receptionist was friendly and helpful. I stayed in 2 different rooms and both were of good standards. The pool looked cool but never got to use(raining). I recommend without a doubt! There is a good vibe about the place and is also family orientated.

This visit did not start well when the proprietor pointed out that " your the one in the budget accommodation". The option of even a Continental Breakfast was not offered even at an additional charge. I was directed to a Bakery. Not the most helpful sort of host.
