This Motel, despite it's age it is a little gem, rooms large and very clean, very comfortable beds and all necessary facilities. There is an excellent dining room, we had the Continental Breakfast which was fresh, plentiful and delicious. It is an easy walk to the beach and to the local supermarkets, and so lovely and quiet. We enjoyed our...

The room we had on this occasion was immaculate; clean and tidy, quiet...

Great and nice service, clean and tidy room and perfect location for a reasonable price. Can highly recommend to everyone. Accommodation is with breakfast, mostly everything you need for breakfast, yoghurt, toast, jam. Maybe just one thing which is the time for breakfast just from 8 till 9. Don't give you a chance to have a late morning.

Hi Kristyna, Thanks for your feedback we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and will take you feedback about the breakfast time into consideration over long weekends were people stay several night, as most of the time people only stay one night, we have found in the past when we offered a later breakfast that people then didn't...

We only stayed for one night but the wifi was good, the room really spacious and there was a fridge/freezer which was really handy. Space to sit in the sun outside and BBQs for use as well. The breakfast was simple but plenty of it. Convenient location providing you have a car to see the penguins and the other sights!

Our first impression was wow, a brand new bathroom with space and place for towels AND ,what we miss in every motel,there are hooks for toilet bags. The room was large and the bed big as well. The air condition is near the door so no direct contact when you are asleep. 🖒Friendly staff. Brekki included. All what we wanted.
