This property is disgusting. When we arrived they charged us $30 more than what we booked it for stating we had to pay more for children despite us including that info in the booking. Cabin was like a shipping container and tiny. Felt like a place IV drug users would go to shoot up. My family and I were frightened to sleep there. We wouldn’t even let the kids sleep under the sheets as it felt unsafe. We checked the room for needles. Woke up early to get away ASAP. Bathroom was communal. Shower curtains would leave you later on display to others using the bathroom. Uneven concrete floor in shower. Communal toilet door in ladies didn’t even lock properly. Dodgy other residents walking around late at night made it even more scary. Okay this is a cheap accomodation but it’s not fit for humans. I did backpacker accomodation earlier in my life but they were luxury compared to this dump. DO NOT STAY at this property unless you want to shoot drugs into your arm.

We had advised several months in advance the extra cost upon arrival as the total price was only that for 2 adults. Yes the cabins are small and have a communal bathroom which we advertise clearly. The basic cabins are cleaned regularly after every stay along with every other room and are only budget accommodation. Unsure as to how the curtain left you on display as every shower has 2 shower curtains for privacy. In response to the bathroom floor being uneven it is on a slight lean so the water flows towards the drain. We checked the toilets and they both seem to be able to lock with no problems, however if there was an issue at the time we would have greatly appreciated you letting us know so we could fix it. If the environment for some reason made you feel unsafe you could have easily come had a talk with us in the reception and we would have happily refunded the entire amount.

A clean, comfortable motel in a great location. Very close to beach and a short drive to the town centre. We found the staff very friendly and helpful in recommending local attractions.

Great place just a stone's throw from the beach

Pros: Everything mentioned above. Rooms are little older in style, however makes up in spaciousness and comfort whatever it may lack in contemporary fitout.
Cons: Possibly the laundry facilities, however that is nitpicking.
Location: Everything available in town is within walking distance (750m or so?) plus the beach and glow worm dell are minutes away on foot.
Very friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived. Great warmth & hospitality from Adele as soon as we walked in and were always ready with advice and help whenever required. Rooms were very clean, with everything you could need. The amazing beach is a very short stroll away, with town also a manageable walk. Will not hesitate to return on our next Hoki visit.
