Scamander Beach Hotel Motel

Hotel in Scamander & Beaumaris

This hulking hotel complex by the river looks Soviet bloc-ish from the outside, but the new owners are steadily renovating rooms to banish this aesthetic inside. Most rooms have sea views (check what you're getting when you book). The in-house bar/bistro does lunch and dinner over summer (regulation pub classics; mains $15 to $35).
