Absolute wonderful find this Motel. Greeted by Lyn who was fantastic, made you feel quite at home. When she heard that we were having dinner at the Pier Hotel she arranged for a shuttle the pick up and drop off return. Fabulous service. Then you get the view from our spotless, comfortable Room... overlooking the water and the beautiful sunrise - wish we could have stayed longer which is why we will return.

We stayed at this motel for 2 nights. Lynn was an excellent host. Everything was ready for us. Our unit gave us the opportunity to see some beautiful sunrises. Lynn recommended we go to the Pier hotel for dinner just a short stroll away. The food was excellent. We would definitely stay here again. Dale and Cathrine Skelton

We stayed in unit 11 which was absolutely spotless. The unit was very spacious and the bed so comfy. The bathroom was well stocked with a wide array of quality products to use. There was a spa bath too. The sea views just across the road were amazing. Lyn was very helpful and entertaining. We absolutely recommend staying here to all travellers.
