Stayed here on two occasions recently on recommendation from family. One pet-friendly room that was very clean, without smelling antiseptic. Close to dog-friendly beach and amenities. Owners were friendly and helpful, and recommended places to eat and areas to explore. Will stay here again!

Made a quick stop over on our way to Queensland. Friendly family run, cleanest premises I have stayed in for a very long time, worldwide. Rooms are old school but we love that. Park at the door, dinner at the club walking distance away. Ended up stopping again on our return.

The room wasspacious, comfortable and basic, but the full length shelves allowed me to lay out all the clothes, medical supplies, food preparation, etc that we needed.
