Lovely quiet motel with very friendly and helpful host. Great facilities (for a studio) and spotlessly clean. Would definitely stay again. Close to beach and walking distance to restaurants and shops.

Had not booked at all when arriving in the afternoon on the 26 TH Jan 2022, picked the Arcadia as it offered a quiet back street and had decent off street parking. Friendly welcome from the owner (Andy) and managed to secure their last family unit...phew! Such a clean and tidy 2 bedroom unit, beds were so comfortable and the renovated bathroom was first class. The pool offered us a welcome cool off after a hot drive, the location is so close to dining out as well as a short stroll to the awesome beach. Would highly rec. the Arcadia to anyone after friendly service, spotlessly clean rooms and a memorable stay, cheers.
