Right on the waterfront, 10 minute walk to the strand which is the local strip of restaurants along the water. There is free wifi and a kettle, microwave and fridge in the room - I was impressed with the selection of free tea/coffee/biscuits/nuts too!

A motel that looks good on the Internet but at first impressions on arrival you may be disappointed. However the people are friendly and helpful and the rooms are large clean and comfortable. I think it would be even better in summer.
