The hotel is fairly located and if you dont mind walking a 1/2 km for reaching Gateway. The best this is Sea view rooms give a wonderful view of the SUNRISE. They serve an English breakfast which is nice but quite predictable.

Well situated with good rooms. The rooms are better than expected from and HI Express I have stayed in. Big and very well appointed. The views are great. The restaurant is good and the breakfast is reasonable. I'm not sure I would select the hotel as a family or holiday hotel as there others with a better location.

I stay here for business trips and although it is close the office I find the hotel very average. The walls are thin and a noisy neighbor can make for a bad nights sleep. The welcome is great but the hotel just feels a tad disjointed around service and cleanliness and food quality.

Very good rooms, wifi, great views of the ocean. No gym. The tiny pool and sun deck face the concrete, seemed to be shady when I could use them and are below the car park deck - are not on the ocean facing side. OK average breakfast. Comfortable lounge and bar area.

We stayed at the hotel for quite a few times and we enjoyed the comfort. We have never experienced any problems and we will definitely come back again. The view is spectacular, specially at night. As usual, sea facing room is a must. We don't eat bacon, so they accomodated us with lamb sausages. Very welcoming.
