Location was great and we loved using the heated pool with our baby boy. Our room appeared very clean but we later noticed broken glass on the carpet, the bathroom drains were slightly blocked giving the bathroom a stale smell, and although I booked for 2 adults and 1 child, we were given a room with no bathtub!

I booked this hotel several months ago to secure a one bedroom 'Ocean View' apartment. We have stayed at this hotel annually for the previous four years and have always enjoyed the experience until this time. The queen sized bed in our apartment was very uncomfortable to say the least and caused me to suffer lower back pain which affected... More

Friendly and helpful staff at reception. Secure car park. Beautiful view of lake and ocean. We were on level 2 and the night we stayed was nice and quiet. May be different when entertainment is underway on the banks of the lake and park. Close to all activities, shops and restaurants. Room was comfortable and clean. Showing signs of age... More

We arrived late and the staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. The rooms were spacious and clean although a little dated, especially the bathroom. Our room was at the back of the hotel facing the car park which was noisy for most of the night. I would therefore highly recommend an ocean view room on the front of the hotel.

My husband & I spent 2 nights here & it wasn't cheap. Check in was fast. Room was nice, but the bed was hard & lumpy. Pillows were horrible.

Great location overlooking 'the entrance'. The hotel is a little tired, but very clean and they do the best with the ageing decor. Restaurants and pub directly underneath, so if transport is a problem no need here. Great walking and cycle paths right on your door way.
