      Service,cleanliness and comfort

      I checked in late and the staff was there ready to check me in and knew me by name. It was comfortable, homely,clean and a great location for taking beautiful morning sunrise just crossing the street to be on the beach. next time I will stay extra nights.It's a self-contained home unit and kitchen equipment is sufficient.

      Can't think of any as could not look past the lack of cleanliness

      Very disappointing. Our first impression was the glass front door. Filthy with fingerprints! Nowhere up to standard for cleanliness. The handwash dispenser was there but empty. There was less than half a roll of toilet paper. Coffee and sugar in jars were set hard. Whitiange is a lovely place but our stay was spoilt by the lack of care taken by cleaning staff.

      location

      The rooms were not emptied of rubbish, as promised in the compendium. No fresh towels supplied. The electric kettle had a rusted element. The fan was broken and ineffective, no air conditioning. The WiFi was unobtainable. Parking was also an issue. I stayed in a motel between Xmad and New Year and had a 100% better service, so was very dissappointed at the lacknof service we received here.

      comfortable beds

      The motel was one of the worst I have stayed in. The lack of toilet paper, coffee, tea, pepper and salt was poor. The room was not clean. The office was not on site. When checking in staff were unaware of booking. I had booked our group for 2 nights. After the first night someone(do not know who?) came and said we had stayed 2 nights, we stated that we had only stayed one night and he left. We have decided that we will not recommend The Beach Motel and cabins to anyone. In fact I will recommend that if anyone asks about accommodation

      Wasn't expecting luxury but if there were other guests, it would have been noisy - walls are just partitions. Would suit a few families sharing the whole place I suppose, but for Australians the advertised beach just over the road is a huge disappointment.

      Well featured kitchenette

      Very basic accommodation. Family cabin has no lounge area. Parents' bed isn't private to the dining table or kitchenette. None of the 3 rooms are particularly large, yet the high ceiling will imply more space. TV has fuzzy reception and only 3 channels. Only heater and fan were vastly small for the room size, but thankfully not needed at this time. The better shopping and restaurant strip is a short drive, but the kitchenette was well featured if you choose to use it. Thankfully, the bed was rather comfortable.
