Thank You K. The location close to Front Beach but only 350 metres from the Post Office were important considerations when we brought this land to build a motel. Cheers

The room was well equipped with kettle, toaster, toasted sandwich maker, electric fry pan and the best bit was a comfortable recliner. Not too far to walk into the town centre too.
