We enjoyed our stay here. The rooms are well equipped and very clean. Good budget style suitable for couples and families. Nice pool and bbq area. The owners helped us with lots of advice on places to visit and local walks.

We stayed for 2 nights over race weekend. Rooms are spacious and clean. Quiet complex with great host. Kids loved the pool and the resident dogs Sumo and Ninja. If you're looking for comfort, cleanliness and family friendly then we can highly recommend staying here.

The stay was very good. The rooms are self contained so you can make your own meals. We had a BBQ and all the implements were supplied including the cooking oil. Although we didn't have a problem with mozzies, coils were also supplied. The Inn is close to the beach and a pier. There is a tavern in walking distance...
