6/10 Good

Room was fine, bed was comfortable. Nice touch having lollies & biscuits. Room needs extra cleaning on ledges, carpet, lamp shades etc. First time I've ever had powdered milk in a motel...yuk! We are surrounded by dairy excuse for not having fresh milk!

6/10 Good

Nice views from top floor room.
The room we booked was taken by another couple and the owner could not explain why as his computer had died. We had a nice night but felt disappointed we paid for bigger room. Off street parking is provided but having a larger car proved a challenge to get back out in the morning. Great shower and bedroom was fresh with comfortable bed.

4/10 Fair

Lack of signage so hard to find Inadequate bathroom facilities - 1 bathroom/toilet/laundry combined is not adequate for 5 guest rooms Describing a room as "sea view"when the only view is a thin strip visible over the neighboring houses is misleading
