My wife and Istayed here for two nights on the upper floor. If only for the weather, the balcony was a great extra and was amazed to have a full lounge in the room. Nice and clean, well presented, but just a little outdated, with a bathroom that has been changed from a shower over bath to just shower. Nothing...

Clean place but dated (don't mind) but definitely over priced. They manage to get away cause there isn't many other options. Advantages are: close to the beach, house keeping, parking close to the room. Disadvantages: old rusted kettle, cost of the room

We stayed here one night here and honestly... that was one night too many. Very dated and not a pleasant stay. Would not return or recommend it to others. The bathroom was something out of the 70's without even a vanity in the bathroom , and to wash the cutlery and few mugs and bread and butter plates we were...

We were here two years ago. It felt like a throwback to American motels in the 1960's in a good way. Nothing fancy. Nice people, clean, comfortable rooms and here a beautiful view of the bay to Freycinet Park. It's only an easy 30-40 minutes to the park but a much more reasonable price than nearer the park. For American's...

A little pricey for the age of the motel. The room was however clean and was good for a 1 night stop over. The bathroom sink was in the bedroom which was a bit funny. The bathroom only had enough space for the shower and toilet. Close to cafes/restaurants. Not sure if we would stay here again but it was...

We booked the room online just an hour before arriving. Stuart, the owner, you as very helpful, friendly and funny! He even booked us a table at the local bistro. The room was very clean and quiet, it had all the amenities for a comfortable stay. Would definitely recommend it to all travellers, make sure you book a room with...

Fabulous place to stay right next to the beach - really friendly staff, very comfy room at a reasonable rate. Loved it here, just before the season started it was so peaceful and village. Great walk along the water's edge. Laundry facility too.Could have stayed forever!

Friendly & efficient check in with plenty of info on local facilities. An older building which was well built so no neighbour noise issues. Interior had been upgraded with modern bathroom & excellent shower. Plenty of space with efficient heating. Outside space with table & chairs flanked by roses & jasmine. Easy access to beach walk around the point &...

We didn't stay in this motel but we had a problem as we had no internet nor telephone connection with my son, and the woman at the reception was overwhelmed to help me.!!! I don't know how the rooms are, but I'm sure the service is exceptional!
