Great location. Room quite big, considering it had a double and single bed in it. Water saver in the slower head made for no more then a trickle of water... hand basin had more pressure. Walls quite thin, could hear person in next room going to the toilet. The food downstairs was very nice. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Overall, it was a neat place to stay for people who literally only sleep in their room and are out daytripping all day. However, is fairly overpriced for what it is.

This motel is above the main shops and across from the beach. Very noisy on peak weekend nights. Not the most secure or flashy motel, but ok for a night or two if you’re out all day.
