This is my motel of choice when i go on holidays. I love the beach frontage. The room was clean and really modern. The staff are always helpful. I had a top floor room which had a great view, I just did not like how open the toilet & shower were (I did see the pictures when i booked), I just wasn't prepared it. Otherwise LOVE IT.

Nice little decking looking out onto ocean. No breakfast through the week but plenty of cafes in the shopping centre. Had to drive to everything unless you’re fit. Room service is from private restaurant which was a bit pricey for us. Took our bread butter and jam for toast. Had a toaster and fridge with tea and coffee facilities.

Probably the cleanest and most beautiful room I have stayed in. One of the cheaper rooms, no ocean views but it didn't matter. It was nice and quite with a view to the side street. Greeted by a very friendly lady in reception. Will stay again.

The room overlooked the ocean. Great views up and down the coast. Close enough for a short drive or long walk to the centre of town, but far enough away to be peaceful. The room as clean and spacious. Huge shower and bathroom

A brilliant place to stay. Really close to the beach, we enjoyed listening to the waves crash as we drifted off to sleep. Great location in walking distance to the middle of The Entrance. And awesome value for money. Amazing!
