Positive Reviews

Comfortable rooms

Guests consistently enjoy a comfortable stay at this property, describing the rooms as both clean and quiet.

Easy access to beach and marina

The motel’s location in terms of ease of access to the beach and marina tends to hit the mark with guests. The area is scenic and there’s a decent selection of restaurants around the marina.

Friendly and helpful staff

The staff tends to receive good feedback. Guests often compliment the check-in process, finding it quick and smooth, while also reporting that the ongoing service is usually of a high standard.

Negative Reviews

Spas not in all rooms

While many of the rooms and suites here offer a luxurious double spa bath, some don’t benefit from this amenity – a little disappointing for guests who were expecting one.

A little far from city centre

While close to the beach, guests without their own transportation or hire car can find the city centre attractions a little too far away. At two miles from the motel, older, less mobile guests, or those with young kids may not want to walk.

Housekeeping could be improved

Although guests typically give the staff here a thumbs up, there is definite room for improvement when it comes to housekeeping. Maids don’t seem to give much thought to how many guests are staying in a particular room and leave an insufficient number of towels and toiletries.
