We had a few days in a deluxe room with a kitchenette and it was clean and spacious: perfect for our needs. The motel is in a central location and across the road from the supermarket. Apart from when we went further afield we didn't need the car as so many things are only a short walk away, including a...

However road noise was not an issue and inside the room was lovey and clean with new furniture and carpets. The kitchen was...

My parents recommended that we all stay at the easy-going, highly convenient, clean and friendly South Seas Motel. My family (2 adults and one 7 year-old child) stayed next door to my...

The location is within walking distance of the main shopping centre, clubs, and restaurants and cafés and hotel (all within 5 minutes walk). The room was quite large and contained everything to be self-contained ( crockery and cutlery, micro wave, fridge, TV, tea and coffee making, iron and ironing board). The ensuite was a bit small, but adequate and very...

We had a one night stay. Room was well presented and comfortable. Very close to shops and dining options as well as the clubs. Reception friendly and helpful. Bed was comfortable and shower was okay. Couldn't close one window and the next door property was a bit noisy.
