Fantastic place to stay. Nice big open rooms with excellent view over the Coral Sea. I didn't find the rooms dated at all though it looks as though the hotel is in for a referb.
Really can't beat the location, right on the Marina and only short walk to the esplande and casino.
Has access to an actual proper sized gym which was great for us.
Make sure you go down to Bar 8 from 5pm for happy hour . Views over the marina and mountains and is a very relaxing place to spend for pre dinner drinks.
