The owners are very nice the room was clean. (Had no wi-fi ?) The room we were in had a view of the river and estuary and out to sea with a balcony as well. I think all the top floor rooms would have had this view, even most of the bottom ones would have had this view as well?. The food at there restaurant was good, lots of it, and well priced very reasonable. The included breakfast for the price of the room I thought was outstanding. As the room was very reasonably priced to start with. The room is a little old, could probably think about a refit in the future. But hay, the price reflected this and I think I'd rather the great price then to pay a lot more for a new refit with the price to suit. Any way loved it, would stay there again no problem. Cheers Tim Noonan.

Hi Tim, We're glad you had a lovely experience with us. We are working on refurbishments on the last of the rooms but as you could appreciate, a project like this takes time and money - But we will get there! Thank you for your kind words and we do look forward to seeing you back here. Kind regards Reception

Motel is in dire need of renovation. However the room had clean linen and comfortable bed etc. Great view of the beach.parking area difficult if you have heavy bags. No WiFi. TV channels available in my room was just one.

The carpet and bedding were damp as the room was closed up. Not very much air circulating through the room. There was large ants throughout the room.

Hi Craig, Yes, the rooms are locked for security reasons and our guests privacy. The rooms on that floor don't get very much sun, therefore, it may have been cold in the room rather than damp. If we had known about this while you were staying, we may have been able to fix your situation. Thanks for taking the time to review us, we appreciate your feedback. Regards Reception

I loved that our room overlooked the beach and we could relax whilst sitting with the window open. I loved the beautiful clean pool and having a lift to our second floor room. NO WIFI is a problem. The property is old but has been patched and painted and is comfortable and roomy. The staff are great. Unpretentious beach holiday accommodation. Bar and pub style dinning facilities are resonable

Hi there, We understand what you're saying with the property being old and outdated. It hasn't been looked after well with previous owners. As new owners, we are slowly but surely refurbishing areas of the hotels and the rooms. As you could appreciate, a project like this takes time and money. Thank you for taking the time to review us, we appreciate your feedback. Kind regards Reception

Good location across from the beach and the view is the only thing it has going for it. Rooms dated. Analogue TV offering 2 or 4 stations. No fans or air conditioning.

Hi there, We are very aware this hotel needs refurbishing and we have already started refurbishing rooms. As you would appreciate, a project like this takes time and money. We do have fans and heaters for guests if requested at reception. Our TV's are being upgraded as well and the issue with the channels is due to the setup from the previous owner. We are working incredibly hard to fix things as we go. Thank you for taking the time to review us, we appreciate your feedback. Kind regards Reception
