    The nice new , clean and comfortable rooms . The location on the city fringe and being vey close - walking distance - only 5 minutes to the coastal walkway and restaurants etc

    Some road noise but not to bad .

    I really enjoyed our stay and was impressed as soon as we walked into the room. I wasn't expecting the luxury and style we received. Very comfortable beds, spacious room, beautiful bathrooms, choose your own breakfast to be delivered and great details like the hot chocolate and biscuits! Would definitely stay again.

    Would've been great to have a spa pool, but you can't have everything in life!

    Brand new very well appointed motel - traditional motel from the outside, but spotlessly clean and very comfortable, with room quality on a par with many 5 star hotels. Owners were most helpful. If we could always find a hotel like this it would be ideal!!

    Nothing
