It is obvious that this motel has been here for a long time. However, our room was clean and well-serviced, with decent amenities, including air-conditioning and a fridge. Shower pressure was good. The view from our 3rd floor room was a spectacular vista of the ocean with views to The Entrance. We had lunch in the motel restaurant on the...

The hotel has great views of the Pacific Ocean, the beach directly in front is rocky but close by is an ocean pool, and short walk to the entrance beach which is patrolled.

I travelled with my partner and we booked one of the renovated rooms which was beautiful. Reception staff did offer us a non renovated room with more of an ocean view, but we were still able to see the ocean from our room. Great location, staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend!

This is a hotel where you pay for the beautiful coastal view and location. We stayed for 5 nights in December in an balcony spa room. From our balcony we had uninterrupted views up and down the coast. The spa was a lovely addition as it was relaxing while enjoying the view. If you don't mind paying a bit extra...

Great location for a short break. Good walk to town (15 minutes) along the beach path. Sleeping to the sound of the sea. Nice clean and big rooms. We had a balcony room overlooking the sea. The restaurant is open on Friday and Saturday night and the food is top shelf. Brekkie only on Friday and Saturday mornings but cool...

Stayed there for two nights over the long weekend. Prices are very reasonable. Rooms are quite basic but clean and comfortable. We had a room with a balcony and a view of the ocean. Great to see the sunrise from our room. Staff are very friendly. Would certainly visit there again.

It has fairly basic rooms but it has friendly staff, is good value and close to the city centre. Great ocean views from the balcony for early birds to watch beautiful sunrises. Would highy recommend to families or couples.
