Lovely owner. Great location by the sea. We had balcony overlooking the sea. Plenty free parking. Clean. Comfy beds. Fridge, toaster, microwave and kettle which was very useful. Spacious room. TV with lots of channels. Decor a little dated but great value for money. Air con was adequate.

....the price is right for a one night stay...however, dont expect a good nights sleep. The security lights outside windows do not get turned off until very early hours of morning, and curtains do not block out light. Front and back door access so great for catching cross seas breezes. Cars can be parked right outside front or back doors....

The rooms are dated but provide Clean Good Quality Linen and complementary toiletries. The bed was comfortable. Our room provided Clean Crockery & Cutlery, a Fridge, Kettle,...

We have stayed here three times now. It's in a great location. We always get a room on the ground floor looking over the ocean. Great to sit outside having a coffee. The facilities are old but clean. AC is a bit noisy but did the job. Bed very comfortable. Will stay again.

Cheap motel (which wasn't actually that cheap). This motel is in a beautiful spot but desperately needs an upgrade. Comfortable enough for one night but the air conditioner was terrible and the furniture was old and tired. Unable to access the Wi-Fi even outside. Friendly welcome after we managed to find the proprietor but not a great motel.
