This motel is very old and tired and sign above sink asking you to do your own dishes!
The office staff (Leanne) was fantastic. I had a problem with the heating and she fixed it immediately. The room was spacious and comfortable.
Couldnt connect to wifi
Welcome last stop after driving for a week. Was impressed with the bright spacious room, furnishings and the view of the sea.
The room was spacious Bed was comfortable Location was good - some rooms have sea views - ours did not.
No sea view. No mirror for shaving in the bathroom. No soap for washing hands in the basin after you have used the toilet - they could put some liquid soap there. Have to wash and dry your own dishes before leaving - how well do others wash their dishes before you get there? No guarantee on cleanliness. No ice in the freezer. No water in the fridge. Uncomfortable sofa. No cushions on the garden furniture, and you can't sit on the chairs without the cushions due to their design. Chipped plates and bowls. Limited Sky TV. Basically lack of attention to detail.
The location and view was stunning and the place, while relatively old, was very clean and well set up. The beds were very comfortable too.
However, there were 'security' lights down the driveway which, even with the curtains closed, lit up our particular room to the degree that I couldn't sleep. I asked the owners if they could turn them off to which I was told they couldn't (I found this hard to believe and felt fobbed off) but that at midnight they would turn off automatically. They finally went off at 2.30am! Consequently I had very little sleep. An airline mask would have been handy.
The view was so beautiful lovely little town
The room I booked online was different to the room that I had reserved when I arrived. My booking said for up to 4 adults but the room only had 1 bed. Luckily the staff were very accommodating and upgraded our room. Think Booking.com should check the room listings match the accommodation available.
Proximity to ocean. Great views. Modern very clean bathroom. Plenty of room. Quiet.
Electric blankets on twin beds in living area, but no power plug on wall or anywhere near beds. So not much use!
The bedroom and bed were very good. Staff were very friendly and helpfull
The toilet bathroom area looked tired but was functional
Location was good. Close to beach and very quiet
Bathroom had no power points. Lights were in odd places
The staff.They went out of their way for us, really nice and helpful and friendly.
Noise from the other patrons.
Plenty of room
Very unpleasant after smoke smell dominated room. Only one power board for kitchen and any other devices.
People friendly when we arrived late
There was the worst smell ever after shower and flushing toliet so bad difficult to sleep had to have windows open was so cold . Not enough blankets and no spare ones only 1 cover and sheets on bed had to wear woollen jumpers.something very wrong with plumbing told own didn't seem to care very expensive for night . Places next door looked better $25 cheaper than we paid
Heater could have given out more heat, it wasnt very warm
Great staff and handy to everything .
The hosts were brilliant - so easy to talk to about anything and nothing was a bother. The room was great, spacious and also a good sized kitchen area. Definitely recommend this to anyone thinking of staying there.
Water pressure - not very strong to wash hair.
Too many appliances plugged in cuts out the power. Bathroom draughty.
Prime position, right inbetween town and the seal colony. I also woke up to the most stunning sunrise and since this place is right on the beach I had the best view! Can't wait until next time
Asked for a room with a view as it was my birthday weekend. When we arrived they had given us just that. Very spacious room, updated look. They even had a birthday card for me with chocolates inside. Greatly appreciated this, it was very thoughtful ;) Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will be back!
Excellent stay awesome service wouldn't hesitate on staying again
Heat on , very comfortable
Warm comfy room and bed
We could hear the ocean from your unit
We got a unit, different from photos on the website when we booked it. Basically, we got a converted garage. Thin walls, windows that do not close properly, door to the bathroom with huge gap doesn't give you any privacy. Everything was pretty basic and looked like made from leftovers. Dust over bedside table. This unit didn't worth that $90, actually I wouldn't stay in it even if I got paid $90 for staying there. It got incredibly cold over night, so we didn't sleep at night and woke up with headache.
Your welcome was friendly and careing.
Advertising was incorrect Unit was cold Electric blankets not on bed, single bed didn't work Bathroom freezing cold TV reception not satisfactory
