After deliberating for quite a while we decided on this place for a weekend away. Well other than the bed being comfortable that was about all that was good. Check in at reception was slow due to there only being one person there and he wasn't behind the desk when we got there but came from the car park. There... More

We stayed there for two nights in May 2014. It was vivid Sydney weekend. The big hotels were expensive. So, this just did the job. Bathroom was new enough! Could not avoid small cockroaches in the room. The beds were good. The staff were friendly enough. Being close to the road, it was noisy at times. Somehow I fell asleep.... More

The place is basic and barely clean. We were given one room that REEKED of stale cigarette smoke and asked for another.. top floor and we were so tired from travel, we accepted it. It also reeked. And we had to lug all our luggage up the stairs with no help. Many of the power points did not work, and... More

I love that The Haven Inn can accommodate our family in one room. Myself and my husband and two teenagers can fit in one room which is not always possible whilst traveling-I am not saying it is spacious, but we are not crushed in like sardines. I would prefer to have affordable accommodation so that we can spend a little... More

My partner and I stayed at The Haven in in February 2014, it was a terrible experience! The rooms are horribly over priced for what you get. Our room was outdated and shabby, furnishing were scuffed and scratched, draws were broken. The milk capsules in the fridge were past their use-by date, and that's just the beginning of our terrible... More

Stayed overnight, room smelled of smoke, curtains old, carpet old, shower exhaust fan not working, no soap holder, large cockroach on floor, only saving grace was comfy bed. Not worth the money. Please upgrade.

We stayed 2 nights here, midweek. Now, on a tropical island, I can think of nothing lovelier than swinging in a soft hammock with the sound of the waves crashing nearby.... But the bed in our room (103) was like sinking into a hammock that had been topped up with marshmallow! To use the TV we discovered you had to... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks in Feb 14. Great hotel. Perfect if travelling on a budget. Rooms are a bit dated but good size. Hotel clean and tidy, room good standard, TV, fridge, air con, balcony. Room cleaned daily, good sized pool. Room doors do bang a lot which can be an annoyance at night. Location good, only 15 mins... More
