Traffic noise and distance from the city centre and beaches were negatives.

We are further back from road than most motels plus our nice elevation appeals to most guests who usually enjoy the comfort of not being in city centre with it's interfering pedestrians. Our million dollar view & sea breezes wins hearts. Best wishes. Regards. Col.

Pros: Beautiful view of ocean from room. Had ceiling fan, louvres for air flow, and security screens. Located next to Information Centre. Cons: No privacy in shower area (I felt very exposed stepping out of the shower into the open passage next to to the entry door). Could hear traffic from busy highway with windows closed. Too far to wak into centre of town (more than 6 kilometres).

We are pleased you appreciated our magic view from our elevated position well back from the road. Unsure why you didn’t relax by locking rear door. Also front door if Partner not with you. Guests love to walk on beach areas as against walking to town. Hope you saw the new art turtle, fish & crab next door with the Big Mango?

We just loved being there sitting out front and looking into the ocean was a treat and relaxing.

Great views

Pros: The views, and the comfortable bed.
Great views, good size room, comfortable bed, home cooked breakfast was awesome and very reasonably priced. Good sized parking space. Even though it is on the highway, there wasn't very much traffic noise. We will definitely be back.

Pros: Clean and quite comfortable, great view.
Cons: The hotel is pet friendly but charge you $11 on arrival for having a pet stay. This is not advertised on the hotel website! More cutlery and dishes ar
Location: Right next door to the information centre - big mango
Very close to the main highway so there is a lot of truck noise during the night. You can buy dinner and breakfast at the hotel which is great if you don't want to drive into the town (another few kms up the road) for food.

Hi Thank you for your kind review Yes we are a pet friendly motel & do charge a fee of $11 for your pet (some places charge up to $50). Also the fee is advertised on the website. If you needed some cutlery or dishes all you had to do was ask the staff & they would have been glad to help you out. Regards Judy & Ian
