          We stayed here for two nights with 2 kids. Room was comfy, warm and suited our needs. Owners were helpful and friendly. Parking was good, free wifi and a well equipped kitchen. Nice grounds and a little park for the kids.

          No frills motel with clean rooms, basic amenities and cooking facilities. 10 mins walk to New World supermarket to get your groceries. Good service and nice staff. They allowed us to check out later as our whale watch only ended at 10.30am. Thank you.

          The place is a bit old fashioned but quite big and it's perfectly fine for a one night stay with a group of friend, where everyone can have its own room. The staff was nice and let us check out a bit later.
