Very basic & disappointing motel, beds are way too saggy, lots of noise from units above heard easily, and I’ve never been to a motel like this (I’ve stayed in over 100 motels in NSW) which did NOT supply any shampoo, conditioner & body wash. Also mini fridge wasn’t that cold either.

The motel was in the perfect location. Walking distance to the beach and the local shops. While my bed was comfortable, the air conditioning didn't work at all. The weather was quite hot. The lady at reception was very friendly though.

Comfortable but dated. The bathroom door was a sliding door and not totally private I felt.

This is the absolute basics. But all those basics are as good as basics can get. Good powerful shower, comfy bed, clean and tidy, air conditioning that works well (once I swapped the batteries from the TV remote). If you just need a place to sleep and you can overlook the dated decor (unless you actually want to pretend you're a pensioner in the '70s, in which case the decor is on point), this place fits the bill at the right price. Would chill out there again. Oh, and there was a carnival across the road, which was awesome. You might not be so lucky with the carnival when you stay, unfortunately.

The hotel reception/manager was lovely. She let us check in and out late. The location is excellent. There is an amazing fish and chips shop 2 minutes walk away and the bay is across the road. highly recommend if you are on a budget.
