Very clean and tidy room. Minimal road noise. Very friendly host. Plenty of off street parking, which can be seen from rooms. My only negative, the hardest bed I’ve ever slept on. Within walking distance to a lot of amenities.

I read previous reviews and thought this would be a good option. WRONG. I am not sure what rooms other travelers got, but we had one with an oven and heater older than I am. The room was clean, no issues there, but I have never seen facilities so old and we made the decision not to stay and to head home. The lady on reception was very nice and the location was good, but the room was not acceptable at all. We stay at Motels often and all over the world and this was the worst fitted out one we have ever seen.

Room tip: Ask for a modern room

Good welcome. Spacious unit & very well equipped. Oven microwave and stove top. Very clean. Highly recommend. Value for money. 5 minute drive to centre. Fascinating Penguin colony 10 mins by car. Well worth a visit.

We had a large 3 bed room in the first floor. Basic but clean, spacious and with all the equipment you could possibly need. There is no safe nor air conditioning. The later was, during our stay, an issue.

The afternon sun bores into the room through the large expanse of windows across the front. The room heated up very quickly became extremely hot, even with the curtains drawn and the windows and door open. Some refurbishment to the back of the motel meant we could not open the rear facing windows to create a through draft.

With air conditioning I would rate this motel very good, without it, it drops down the scale to average.

Large airy rooms with fantastic cooking facilities. Cooktop, microwave and convection oven plus the usual toaster and kettle. Very helpful lady at reception. Bathroom and kitchen neat and renovated. Comfortable.
