Collected key from around corner. Unwelcoming little office no bell. Room overlooked horrible cabins. Cleanliness not a priority. Toilet disgusting. Microwave unclean inside. Did not cook in unit. Went out. Will not return.

Check in is around the corner at Motor Camp. Reception is a tin shed. Asked if there was milk in fridge - told yes - no there wasn't. Insufficient parking - and not marked - unable to park outside our unit. Thin walls and noisy neighbours and noisy fridge (motor never turned off - probably because of ice build up)...

One thing I cannot stand is the sight of yucky pillows or sheets and I got 2 out of 4 pillows with DISGUSTING looking stains that I have no idea what are they. The reception was not easy to find. Basically I cannot wait to check out.

The guest Benny Gan stayed with us for 2 nights from 24 to 26 October Benny I am disappointed with your comments regarding our accommodation. First it is clearly stated on our bookings that our office is situated off site, at the campground next door. As there only 4 motels, it is uneconomical to administer them onsite as well as...

Wondered what we'd let ourselves in for after we had arrived and (belatedly) read the not so good reviews, but we found nothing amiss. The room was clean, bed comfortable, laundry fine and mine hostess pleasant. We do suggest you keep the windows closed or make sure you have a can of flyspray though. It might have just been the...

Stayed in the beach cabin - Extremely bad attitude from the people running the accommodation Cold water shower No reception office on the site, so we had to ask people staying there where to go to check in (and then had to go to a different camping ground to check-in). There weren't even any signs to indicate this! Noisy (from...

Worst accommodation ever!!!! Situated away down the road and around the corner from the office we stupidly didn't view before we paid up front! Got the key, went down and walked in....there was a blood stain on the duvet, pulled back the sheet and there were three black hairs, checked the shower and the floor was black which we thought...

This was the worst value place I have EVER stayed in. The place was filthy - dirt, mould, cobwebs, pools of water in bathroom. The bed was disgusting. The pillowcases and sheets all wrinkled. Looks like they hadnt been changed. The coffee and sugar in containers and were block solid so no use. Tea bags just ones out of a...

Room was ok for the price, kitchen adequate no oven but microwave and hot plates which were a bit slow. Walls a little thin. Lots of hot water which was a plus. A heat pump would be a welcome improvement in the future as it was hot and with the windows open the traffic noise was loud. Helpful in the...

Although being called Beach Motel, “located directly across the road from the beach” the property is not beachfront, you can’t even see the beach from the units because there is a row of houses across the road blocking the view. The motel is located away from the main part of town. The front unit we had was large and clean...
