Good Morning Steven Thank you very much for your kind and honest review. We both believe there is nothing more unwelcoming than a guest walking into a cold room, especially this time of year. Hope to see you again some time. Regards Roger and Kay

Stopped the night (14th April 18), good location, 2 mins from the beach, very friendly, room immaculate, plenty of places to eat - would recommend the ‘Beach’ restaurant on the front both for evening and breakfast meals ( suggested by motel). Would definitely stay again.
