We stayed in a family room with our two daughters under two. The room was nice and clean, staff very helpful across the board, and I even got discount on my beer from the hotel's bar :) Very much recommended and Exmouth is a nice place to stay for couple of nights.

Stayed here with group of blokes on a (long) cycling weekend. Helpful, friendly staff, comfortable rooms, convenient location and reasonable prices. The bar was open when we needed it & breakfast was excellent. All-in-all it is very easy to recommend it.
