The hotel room was clean , comfortable and quiet . Great location and prise is affordable. I can recommend it if you don't need wy-fy, because it was nearly dead. However, the hotel is worth the price .

Thank you so much for your feedback. Unfortunately we did have issues with the internet the night you stayed but the WiFi has been working well since so I am sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused you. So glad to hear your stay was otherwise positive.

I really enjoyed my one night stopover at the Coast Inn Motel. They were super friendly and helpful, finding me bus timetables and pointing me in the direction of food. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Very good value for money, but more importantly - lovely owner managers.

My room was orderly and clean. Although the room is inside a little bit dark, I had a very pleasant stay. The bathroom is also nice and clean and the bed was excellent. Nathan is very friendly and I would stay again at this motel.

We stayed here whilst traveling north. A decent sized open plan living space for the three of us. It came with a fridge but no kitchenette so we couldn't cook so we decided to walk into town.....
