From memory this was a good location and a basic but all you need place to stay......wrong...there were sharp up lifted broken tiles over the balcony, mould over the walls, sharp exposed corner metal floor edge, ripped / torn sofa bed, leg missing off a singe bed causing it to tilt when used, dinning table leg literally hanging off, no...

Pros: Unobstructed million dollar view, spa/sauna/pool, beach across road, free secure car parking, full working kitchen (we ate in every night and saved a great deal of money by doing grocery shopping), staff willing to go above and beyond. Absolutely fantastic value for money. Extremely cost effective. We stayed here for 14 nights for less than $1,000 AUD!!! Cons: Towels... More

Stayed in Unit # 410...very tired and tatty...The bathroom - chipped and mouldy tiles, water swollen cabinet doors & walls, weeks/months worth of greasy dust on the fan outlet, think there must have been a bath in here at some time as there was a set of taps low in the shower but they didn't work and possibly a shower...

LIKES..The apartments are directly opposite the beach. They are walking distance to Cavill Ave. we stayed in unit 706. DISLIKES...The unit is very old. There was no curtain in the bathroom. The balcony furniture was extremely dirty. The clothes airer was rusted and could not be used. The windows had not be cleaned for a very long time. The cushions... More

An average place to stay with quite small aging rooms. Not spectacular though a good location and somewhat reasonable price, like many others in the area. Service at front desk very mediocre. A little noisy too, despite being on a higher floor.

3rd visit each getting worse. Last stayed in March 2014 into what I was told was a great room with ocean view. Room 812. Great view. Curtains were falling off, tap came off and toilet holder fell off also. The shower frame is riddled with rust and concrete cancer. Very little attempt to maintaining this building. Because I was staying... More

We got a great rate on a basic studio suite, but it was worn out and ratty. After 3 days, we requested a move and they moved us to an updated studio for $10 more a night. This was $10 very well spent. The staff was friendly, and the location is great. The wifi is expensive and the reception was... More

I stayed alone for the 2rd time here and was quite happy with it. I do agree that the renovations didn't do the hotel justice. Yes, most units were renovated but still had their own problems. My recent trip received great service but has had the reception hours trimmed back to general business hours and even less on weekends. My... More

Stayed here for 2 nights to go to the Football at Metricon Stadium. Property is good value for money, nothing fancy, older property. Views from the 11th floor were great. I understand with the location there would be quite a lot of salt spray from the ocean, but windows really need a very good clean. Crockery, glasses etc in poor... More
