    Fair 4.0
    Terrible service
    This is not 4 star accommodation as shown on the website. The man at the front desk was ok, the lady's service was terrible. Our kids were having a shower and the hair/body soap dispenser was empty. So had to go and see if they had anything at the office - that took ages as the lady went on and on about the cleaners. There were 4 of us. Only 3 forks - so while my lunch was going cold I had to go and get another fork. At first I was greeted with, "you're still here", I was like yes. She then said that we should have checked out by now. I said no, we had paid for two nights, she disputed that. In the end she checked the computer. She then went on and on and on about blaming the cleaners, and that she didnt have time to check rooms. I also asked about the room being serviced and instead of saying after 12 (which was also odd as most places service in the morning while people are usually out) I got another big story - so yes my lunch was cold and everyone had eaten by the time I got back to the room. Service finally turned up around 1.30. The kitchen and bathroom taps dripped. The left hand element on the stop top didn't work. Water goes everywhere when you shower as its one of those showers that dont have sides of lips to keep the water in, so had to use all the towels to mop the floor so we didnt slip. Hazard walking from the bathroom to the kitchen - slighly raised lip - but not a step. Bedroom vacuuming not good. Bed comfortable. Location good.

    Lovely views from harbour and beach front
    Good location for town, nice boardwalks across from the motel. Great parking, no air-con but you can open front and back door to get fresh air in. At night, fan provided. Good restaurants by harbour.
