The view of the beach was so amazing, the best place to stop off and relax for a few days, the fact you could order breakfast and just chill out and eat it on the balcony. Couldn’t not fault it

The staff are the friendliest we’ve encountered. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they are always smiling. They made our stay extra special. The motel is inviting with coastal chic colours that are inviting and fun. Everything is clean and well maintained. Trust me you will not be disappointed with your stay. Each room has a view overlooking the beach. At night you can hear the waves crash outside your balcony while the seals play on the shore. We will be back to this great place!
