    Friendly relaxed hosts. Rooms clean and tidy, with a fantastic morning view. Bedroom is to the rear away from any road noise - not that there was much. Shower pressure was a bit lacking but I would stay again - the position and hosts well...More

    Old school small complex in a top spot immediately adjacent to the harbour. Also just a gentle stroll to the local shops, restaurants etc. Roomy and well maintained, very relaxing vibe due to the close proximity of the water. Steve is a great host and...More

    Fabulous stay in this boutique motel. Location, location, location with views to die for. Lovely large unit spotlessly clean and although older style Steve and Valerie have added new touches to make the motel look lovely, fresh and updated.
