Nice hotel close to shops and restaurants

Pros: Very close to everything
Cons: It was good we knew what we were booking
Location: Ashcombe Maze, The antique shop in the next town was amazing we should have allowed more time for that, walking on the beach with the racehorses everw
We stayed 2 nights we had to go the NAVY base We had a look around the area and went to Ashcombe Maze it great and the new Restaurants across the road was so good. The Hotel is very central and easy to get to everything nice place to stay.

Needs an upgrade

Pros: The owner on the phone was very helpful.
Cons: Upgrade
Only stayed one night. Room was ok but needs an uplift as it looks very tired and even thouugh I'm sure it was cleaned before we got there, because of the age of the facility had a dirty feel to it.

nice hotel, close to shops & short trip to beach

Pros: spacious room, clean and no issues with staff at all. Overall a nice 2 night stay to get away from home. Thanks.
Cons: a minor issue, the cubby house needs a bit of TLC, a few posts seems to be loose and nails sticking out, but my 2 year old loved it.
Location: beach is great for toddlers, there is a farm nearby called rain, hayne & shine which my son loved, great park nearby and great park in nearby Hastings
Due to probably most parents traveling with toddlers are aware, we were looking for a basic getaway which would occupy the 2 year old boy we have, which is all important. The hotel was great for a 2 night getaway. The hotel is a walk across the road to some restaurants and take out, we went for the fish and chippie shop and the chips and schnitz burger were very good. The motel was close to the nice park just down the road, and a short trip to the beach by car. The beach is great for little ones, as it was calm and sand was no harsh on the feet. There was not much of an undertow and the beach was great to walk on after the sun went down. The park/playground/skate park is walking distance away, which is great for kids. It also had a skate instructor teaching kids to skate the day we went, but not sure if he was there as a permanent thing. We also went to nearby Hastings which had a great park/playground as well, as well as a Good play area for kids at the Westernport Hotel where we ate. The hotel also had a cubby house, which was good and the toddler loved, but it may need some TLC to fix up some minor wobbly bits on it, but nothing major.

Great get away!

Close to the beach, clean and relaxing location that's out of the way from the more over crowded peninsula locations.
