Situated right on the waterfront with great views. Plenty to see and do in the immediate neighbourhood. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms very comfy with extra large beds in studio rooms. We found water pressure excellent during our weekend stay. Have stayed here before and will stay again.

Great king bed in a studio room, older builder with some cracking concrete externally when looking from balcony...water pressure wasn't great & shower above bath was hard to get in & out of..price was right for an overnight stay. Located close to restaurants & cafes.

Nice staff, room very clean and modern, roof top pool good but can get crowded in summer. Located in a nice location with resturants, cafes and night life. Close to the water and always activities in the holiday season for the kids

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...

I stayed here with my disabled daughter in a disabled room over the weekend of May 23-24. The hot water temp in the shower and water pressure was so low that we shivered every time we had a shower. When I complained to staff I was a low water temp in disabled rooms was a safety requirement of council and... More

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.

Nice hotel, love how it's within walking distance to so many great restaurants. This was our 4th stay, and due to me rushing the booking I didn't choose water front room, therefore we were overlooking the car park for the weekend :( After visiting the room and realising, I went to reception to see if I could change rooms. The... More

I am sure you can appreciate our ocean view apartments are very popular and often the first choice with guests. I would like to ensure the shower head in the... More

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
