Stayed at the Foreshore overnight recently. Had room with a view of the sea which was a bit special. Couldn't open the window as there was no key but I suspect if we had gone to the office one would have been supplied. Beds very comfortable. Didn't eat in the restaurant as it was a little out out of our...

Found this motel on-line. Photos of room looked modern. Booked a sea view room and quoted $10 more than my research showed as current price. ($21 more than I later saw as previous week's price offered by motel.) Room was old. Shower had a gap under screen which meant water over entire floor between basin and toilet. There was a...

Very clean and tidy. Lovely views of the foreshaw and the adjacent gardens. Very professionally run establishment, well presented and continuing to be improved and upgraded. Very affordable. Never stayed here before I will return.

Stayed overnight in the cheapest room. It was very clean with a great garden view. The bed was comfortable but the pillows not so much. It is as it's called right on the foreshore with a great little beach cafe nearby. We did have a couple of nosey kids try and peek into our room from the gardens so I'm...

We found the room adequate, but somewhat tired. The restaurant was excellent, though. The owners of the property have recently taken back the management themselves and have yet to recall all the previous managers internet 'specials'. Check before you go.

After a long drive the warm greeting and welcoming drinks with lively chat was so friendly. The comfort of the room and bed exceeded our expectation. Waking in the morning to the lovely sea vista kissed by the early sun was gorgeous. The motel restaurant was excellent - silver service with excellent wines. We will certainly come back and highly...
