Lovely motel very clean and set out well but bed was way too soft and warn out it was extremely unpleasant to sleep in and we both woke up half crippled, if you are a smoker be warned no smoking outside on balconies you need to go down stairs and outside. The jetty is way overdue for a new one it is falling apart. All in all nice spot nice motel but I think the bed and lack of smoking areas will make us think twice about staying again.
