Lovely little motel. Staff were great but no early morning checkout
The staff were great. No restaurant but very good take out menu and delivery is made to your room. Small but I really liked it. My only concern was having to lock my key in the room to check out early. I felt vulnerable standing outside at 5am waiting for my taxi with no way to get back in if the taxi was late or if something happened. I would stay there again on a personal visit and would book at later flight.

Friendly owners were quick to help us book the night zoo. Within minutes they had it booked for us. They also helped to give suggestions for how to get around and cooked a decent brekkie. We didn't like huffing all our heavy luggage (3 big bags of scuba equipment) up the stairs, but managed when we made it to the room. Decent size. Mini kitchen. Very liveable. It'd be a good place to live out of for a short week, and though a hike from the center of town, in a decent area with a short walk to the water. Cheers.
