  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Positioned directly across the beach and a 10 minute walk to the shopping area makes this motel ideal. It’s an older building that has been neatly updated. Very comfortable bed. The bathroom would be unsuitable for people will mobility issues as there are large steps up into the spa bath to take a shower. Also the space for the toilet is very tight. The free wifi was intermittent and slow. The TV was oddly positioned.
