The man at reception was friendly, the room was clean, air con worked, but handles falling off several doors. The worst thing was the hot water running out. Had a family spa room and one spa was the end of the hot water til morning. The fact that there was limited hot water would have been helpful to know earlier.... More

This was a last minute booking over Xmas and not many rooms available in town. We now know why there were rooms at this place... The room was OK. On the first night, they didn't make the bed although seemed to do the rest of the servicing; a bit unusual, but can probably live with that. On our fourth night,... More

This is the worst hotel ive stayed in. The reception unattended. The milk capsules in the fridge were 5 months old from expired date. The room wasnt clean. Got itchy from the bed. Honestly appauled. Its not like we paid $60.00 or $100 to stay here. It was $220.00 per night. So you would expect to get a half decent... More

Stay for a night. Very basic but fairly clean, and the room was cheap. Recption was unattended and had to wait for him to run from the motel a few doors down, seemed run off his feet and abrupt. There was a spa in our room but taps had been removed, that was fine as we had only paid for... More

Good location with close walk to town and beach. However cleanliness not impressive and room had the feel it had been a while since it had been properly cleaned. Basic fittings and we were given a room with a spa but the fittings had been removed. Shabby paintwork and bathroom. Breakfast was worthwhile addition to cost. Don't think I could... More

Clean: that's the most important thing to me. Our mid block room was quiet. Relatively modern finishes. Hot water took about 5 minutes to reach tap but stayed hot once it arrived. A/c a bit too noisy but open windows ok. I would stay again for an overnight stop.
