    The Seahorse Motel is a very neat, well run, clean tourist style accommodation. They cater for children with a nice children's playground. The owners were particularly helpful in suggesting dining venues. Within walking distance of the beach this is a very pleasant stay.

    It was a good size bed which would probably accommodate the four of you. Whether the motel would permit this is something only they can answer.
