One night stay

Pros: Cleanliness friendly staff quiet rooms big rooms
Cons: They pretty much have it sorted, no improvement required
Location: Beach location, might be busier in summer, close to wineries
Nice location, lovely view of ocean and very quiet room. We only stayed overnight but it would be a great location for a holiday base to do day trips from.

I found the room comfortable. The TV was not working well, but the manager changed the batteries in the remote and it was okay. The booklets and the shampoo were out of my reach and the towel rail in the bathroom was missing.

Cons: The lace curtains were a bit odd because they only sat in the window and only covered 3 quarters of the window
Location: Great spot for the market on Sunday mornings easy to get milk and bread servo over the road easy to get onto port Wakefield Road
Had to walk upstairs with a sore knee but the room was clean and well appointed

Clean and comfortable

The motel room I stayed in was clean, the bed was comfortable. It had all the basics required. As I was traveling for work I only needed somewhere to rest. The staff were very friendly.
