Stayed here for one night and found room as comfortable for one night but would be a bit small for a longer stay. A bit old and could do with a bit of work. Bathroom tiny. In its day, place would have been quite modern but courtyard and pool surrounds look like they need a bit of a cleanup, nothing...

Excellent value in an old but very clean and tidy environment just across the road from the surf beach. The motel is conveniently located with a restaurant attached. The playground and pool area and has wonderful facilities and is great for the kids. The staff are friendly and obliging providing excellent service.

Great location 2 min to the beach with a restaurant and bar attached to the hotel which was very handy! The rooms are a little small but tidy and the added bonus of a hot tub was excellent! The place itself however is a little run down and could do with a bit of TLC!!

Was a little disappointed in the decor and size of the room. The carpet was badly marked and damaged. Couch looked really dirty, and bedding looked old and worn. They didn't service our room each day, and no freezer in fridge. Mattress is old needs replacing. Pool and spa was nice. Good location.

A great location, spoilt by an establishment that has obviously seen better days. The room rate was, as a consequence, over-priced. Perhaps the owners are saving their profits with a view to refurbish the motel - let's hope so. In the meantime, I shall use the cabins in the caravan park opposite.

I find this a hard place to review. As another reviewer has said, the photos of this hotel look nothing like the room we had. Our room was clean, but very dated and the bathroom was incredibly small. In fact, fitting in the shower wasn't easy. The staff were really friendly and helpful - no complaints there. The hotel is...

These pictures don't even remotely look like the rooms we had there just 1 day ago. Admittedly our 2 bedroom apartment was booked using 'Scoopon', so was great value, but amenities like cooking facilities (only jug, toaster, fridge and microwave) in the room where missing, we only had 2 coffee mugs for 4 adults, no salt/pepper, supplies of sugar/coffee/tea not...
