Comfortable bed. Beautiful view. Great spa to watch sunset. Room decor and bathroom dated, water pressure poor.. biggest problem was noise.. walls super thin, could hear guests on either side and the footsteps of those above too...

The accommodation was well positioned to view the entrance between the breaking ocean and lake system. You were also very close to shops and restaurants and just a short drive away to the local Digger Club. Don't be guided by GPS enter hotel from Duffy's Lane.

We really enjoyed staying here. The price was great, as was the location and the room. The room had a washing machine, dryer and a kitchen which was fantastic! The hotel is walking distance to restaurants as well which was helpful.

Paid $235aud. Room was not facing the water. It was facing another apartment block n i felt like people could look in. Room did not come with breakfast wifi or parking. Not worth what we paid. I wold recommend staying at the place accross the road. Cheaper, same quality room. With breakfast wifi n parking included

Really nice, spacious room for a great price, everything we needed was there. We were on the town side and the view was still amazing. The rooftop pool and spa were fantastic. The air conditioning was impossible to control but we made do, and everything else was great!

Stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment on the town side. It was a nice relaxing stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the hotel. Right in the middle of town so handy to everything. Staff at front desk are helpful and friendly. Clean and comfortable. Free Wifi however couldn't get it to work.
