Hey Christopher M, Thanks Mate for that lovely endorsement. Being close to Front Beach, the Marina and the Town Eateries is a big help but we have zero traffic so no noise. It is a great spot here. Kimberley, Kim and Debbie.

Fantastic motel- really friendly staff, clean and spacious room with excellent shower. Fresh milk and filter coffee facilities in room was a bonus. Didn't get a chance to check out the pool or gardens but I'm sure they were of a similar standard.
