    Spa size.

    There was still hair in the bathroom. Still coffee in the mugs (not cleaned the room). And when i talked to the owner he said he did not have a cleaner and expects us to not blame him for the lack in hygiene.Meaning he tried to clean it himself before we got to the room.

    Friendly reception, well organised rooms and great laundrey for doing the washing. Very close location to shops and restaurants.

  • Family with children
    8.2

    The proximity to the beach for the State Ocean Swim Series, the quietness of the street. How Paul the manager allowed us to have a late check out so we could have a shower after the swim, which was most kind because I know how busy the motel was.

    The dog next door that barked at shadows

    Paul at receptioin is very friendly and helpful. Full kitchenette is very useful for families. Close to shops and restaurants but off the main drag.
