We thought the standard of the room was terrible. Carpet was frayed and stained, fan in shower didn’t work, no power point in bathroom for hairdryer. It was a very hot day and night and there was no fan or air conditioner. Wall paper was coming off the wall. For the price we paid which was a premium, it was not worth half of it. Desperately needs a freshen up or better a refurbishment. Great position.
We were upstairs facing the beach, I think the units in the other blocks looked better

Room Tip: Don’t have the upstairs closest to beach and che k thoroughly before you pay.

Well, this "OLD" motel is .... very, very old.We booked for two nights and checked out after one. Says something? The carpet and the interior smelt musty as the furniture was from the 70's or at least did look so. The doors, cupboards, and walls were on its last legs-- not to mention the curtains. I don't really want to relive it all but bottom line is, not worth the coin we paid. The only thing going is that it's on the beachfront but all of the above and many others I haven't listed- it's not for us and not again.

We stayed for one Saturday night mid September

The Motel grounds run down to the beachfront which is great

We had a two bedroom unit at the front of the complex which was a little dated but clean and comfortable

There are units at the “back” of the complex which face directly on to the ocean and a cottage style unit that is without a doubt the best spot

Faces directly on to the ocean and the lawn runs down to the sand - quite expensive but perfect for a group who can share the cost

Staff were friendly and welcoming

Motel is easy to find and close to the shops and restaurants

For the price we paid for one night I was very happy. Unit was warm when we walked in heater had been put on for us. And we got to watch the rugby. Very roomy and altho some was a decor was a bit dated being so close to the beach and restaurants for dinner more then made up for it. Shower was great. And everything was comfortable and very tidy. Will definitely come stay here again soon.
