We booked 3 nights over New Years at the last minute...think it was probably the last room left in the Bay so were lucky to be there. Booked a 2 bedroom unit, very clean and tidy and newly decorated. Well equiped kitchen although provision of extras such as a salt and pepper shaker and daily replenishing of the tea and...

We were booked in for 6 nights at this hotel over the New Year period. I was impressed with how spacious our 1 bedroom room was. There was enough room to include a foldout sofa bed and a single free standing bed. The balcony was also big. The bathroom was tidy but unfortunately had a strong odor of B.O -...

I don't usually write reviews, but I was not at all impressed with this motel. We stayed here over the xmas/ new years break this year and we did not feel the accommodation was up to standard. Overall, we felt we paid more then it was worth. The website clearly states free wifi, there is free wifi - however it...

We booked this by phone approx.. a week before and I am always apprehensive about booking ahead. We were totally surprised it was very spacious and very clean. The manager was very courteous and helpful. It was a short walk from the town along the beach front. Also value for money.

I never usually write reviews but here goes, the service is disgusting as are the rooms, they smelt like damp clothes. The owners are so rude and it just proves that when you read their responses to reviews! What kind of owner divulges personal info about what people have been up to the night before (or the same night) as...

I made a reservation at Marlin Court Motel, for 7 people, three couples and one single, for 3 nights. I requested a two-bedroom unit, and two studios, but as there was only one studio available, Maureen kindly offered a one-bedroom unit at the same rate as a studio. I also asked if a discount was available for the multi booking,...

I stayed with my family for a few days in early January 2014. The one-bed room apartment on the first floor was tidy with comfortable beds. The balcony outside the lounge provided the tranquility that we needed after a busy tour day. The motel is just a few minutes walk to the beach, ideally located. The swimming pool was open...
