Thanks Aidan and Alex. You were amazing hosts at LL and a fountain of local information. Room was spotless, walking distance to town centre. Absolute gem of a place. Would definitely stay here next time and highly recommend to others.

Located only a couple of minutes drive from the main shopping/dining/marina precinct, the Lazy Lizard is extremely comfortable with the added bonus of being quiet.

Motel was immaculate, both rooms and grounds. Hosts were welcoming and helpful. Location is excellent. We enjoyed having the car at the front door and not having to contend with stairs and lifts. Privacy is also excellent.
