Stayed 5 nights and we were very impressed. The staff were extremely helpful and the whole complex is kept very clean and tidy. A pleasant stroll to the local shops. I will definitely stay there again.

Affordable accommodation off the main roads, basic spacious rooms but quiet and cosy, friendly helpful staff. Is located a bit further then walking distance from town centre ( unless your adventurous) but we didn’t find parking a hassle. Plenty to do in the area

Shoal bay is just down the road from accommodation. It isn't patrolled but the water is very still and calm.

Apologies but I can't answer that. We did not require the use of a safe and therefore paid no attention as to whether there was one or not. Maybe you need to contact the motel direct to obtain an answer. Cheers.
