    Pleasant motel

    Pleasant stay, lovely location to walk along the water and beautiful spot for sunset. Comfortable stay, basic, but all you need.

    It was a lovely place to stay, nice and quiet, clean and comfortable. We loved this motel. Our unit was seaside we were able to view the sea and had a short walk in the morning was amazing. We are definitely coming back to the motel again next time.

    Amazing sunset!

    The sunset here was picture perfect. I felt that the motel was a wee bit overpriced for what it was. The room was large and clean. The grounds were rough and unloved. There is a freedom camping spot in front of the motel which is a bit noisy and messy. But the spot on the coast is very beautiful.
