Reviewed 10 May 2017

We pre-booked a studio unit for 2 nights, and chose the option of an "extra large double bed", assuming it would be king-size. When we arrived we were informed that it was a queen size bed, and told we could upgrade to a larger unit with a king-size bed for an extra $40 per night. We reluctantly paid the extra, and then found the bed to be extremely basic, uncomfortable, and bouncy; rather like sleeping on a trampoline. The blind in the living area was broken, as was the dishwasher.
We wouldn't recommend this motel, and won't be returning. However, the location and the views were great.

Lodge has nice views of habour, rooms spacious and clean. Water pressure only average. Have to go to town if you want a drink or meal which is about 5 kilometers away. Parking a bit tricky if you have a big vehicle. Overall a nice stay and would go again.

We stayed in a studio unit which had lovely views over the water from the balcony. A very quiet peaceful location with a good cafe nearby. The unit had a slight musty smell as if carpet had been wet but ok when doors were open. A well equipped kitchenette, tiny but functional. Units were not serviced daily but bins were nearby for rubbish. A comfortable stay.

Stayed last weekend and absolutely loved it! Would thoroughly recommend to anyone. Relaxing and in a great location. Clean, comfortable amenities. Right on the water with cafes nearby. We will definitely be back soon.
