Helpful reception staff. Room clean but tired. Cramped. Only sink in the unit was in the kitchen so we had to clean our teeth and wash up in the same one. Good position close to town and beach. Terrible smell we were told was seaweed.

We stayed in a room with an ocean view which was lovely. The people in reception are so helpful, offered us a view of the different rooms before booking one and gave us some washing powder for the laundry as I had mentioned we had a bit of washing to do. The gentleman that gave us the laundry powder gave...

We stayed one night on our way down towards Hobart. The staff were very friendly and helpful on arrival. The room was large and comfortable with a couple of chairs outside with ocean views. The only downside for us really was that the Wi-Fi was very slow which was a bit of a pain after a few days on the...

All the prior reviews sum it up nicely. It's a somewhat basic motel on the water. The room was clean and spacious. During our 2 night stay the mosquitos on the patio where really bad and the wifi was nonexistent. But it was just fine for an overnight accommodation.

We stayed here for 2 nights and were upgraded to a superior room. The view over the water was fantastic, but for a superior room it was lacking in some areas. There was no hanging space at all in the room. The shower had water running everywhere down the wall when the water was turned on - obviously a job...

Our room had a lovely view of the ocean. Coffee and Tea facilities in the room were good. The motel washing machine was out of service but there is a good laundromat just down the road. Plenty of places to eat so you wont go hungry. Look for the loal oyster guy and cut out the middle man. Very nice...

This motor inn is very tired and old looking which is such a shame because the views from the rooms on the water side are beautiful. When we booked we asked for a room that had a view, so glad we did because the rooms on the other side of the driveway had no view to speak of. The room...

Stayed here one night. There are 2 separate buildings - one on the water the other just has a view of the parking lot. Unfortunately we were in the parking lot one. The motel is clean but old. The walls are thin so you can hear your neighbors and the parking lot. OK for a one night stay.

One night stay en route. Disappointed the charming old pub was gone. Sheets and bathroom clean enough. Why dont the local council clean up the beach so the stench doesn't pervade the whole town? Strange place :😨
