The World Cup is over but we're not quite done celebrating yet!
The All Blacks win has inspired us and we think now is the time for renewal.
For the month of November our external renovations mean that you will get a free breakfast every weekday morning.
If you need somewhere warm and friendly to stay, check us out.

With the beach on our doorstep and summer now upon us it is the ideal time for surfers and beach lovers alike to come and visit.
And if you feel tired and thirsty after a long hard day of sunbathing then the local bars offer a selection of live music and quiz nights to keep you entertained.
Prices are per person per night.
