    Our long weekend at the Waves Motel

    We just spent 3 nights at Waves. We had a few niggles. We have stayed there many times over the years and feel it's feeling more and more tired. Some maintenance is needed such as a dangerous missing tile on the steps, the bathroom floor needs regrouting, mould behind the kitchen faucet, the bathroom rubbish bin was rusty, lack of kitchen utensils for cooking, and the dinning chairs needed cleaning. On the plus side it's great to be close to the beach and the one bedroom unit is spacious.

    Plesant as always but please update/repair stove t

    Always a fantastic stay at WAVES. 1 frustrating thing we always find though. The benchtop stoves (in several rooms) all have only 1 setting.... HIGH... burns the food
