    Comfortable place to access hiking tracks.
    Comfortable and clean room. Great location for hikers with easy access to state parks and hiking trails ( or tracks, as they are called in Australia)

    Nice motel. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed. But plenty of other options. WiFi was very slow

    Great Stay :)
    Clean, comfortable and spacious room. We are a couple but stayed in a family room, a family of 4 or even 4 adults would fit comfortably. Lovely bathroom (bath included!). The room was clean, staff were really friendly and we were able to check in early which was nice. Close to the beach and the shops/restaurant. Had a great stay and would definitely recommend :)

    We were very impressed with the motel check in. It was still raining when we arrived early so the lady at the reception desk made sure our room was ready and let us in before the allotted time of 2pm. The bed was very comfortable and the amenities served the purpose. The only fault we found with the town is that a lot of the places to eat have closed, some not open on a Sunday and the ones that were open are over priced.
