“great position”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Good hotel with nice rooms.Get a room on The Strand front and with a small kitchen.
good restaurants near bye.
The Sunbus which used to run every 30min to the Casino and downtown has been cancelled,a really dumb move by someone.

Room Tip: Get a room at the Front

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Stayed here last week for 8 nights, nice and neat rooms which have been refurbished, flat screen and some pay tv channels! Barthroom was dated and they need to be refurbished (had to get a plumber in to repair toilet and hot tap), handy semi contained cooking facilities enabled nice hot breakys but only has a bar fridge! we were happy with reception staff, rooms were serviced every day! The location is all but the best along the Strand, pub and restraunts outside front door! We had no noise issues apart from one night boys renting house next door a little roudy until around 4am but it was a Saturday night, no problems any other night! Bed and ac comfy! Best part was it was just motel room price but was semi contained with basic cooking facilities! All in all great value for money and would have no probs staying here again!

We found the accommodation excellent and the room was to a good standard of comfort. No road noise was a bonus and the location is perfect as each night we were able to go for a walk along the 'Strand'. The pool was small but enough to cool off from the heat of the day. Secure parking was a bonus and we felt secure.

Room Tip: We stayed on the middle floor which was fine, however some noise could be heard from the room above...

My husband & I stayed at The Waters Edge, The Strand recently. The hotel is right across the road from the beach very good located close to all cafes & restaurants. The staff were friendly and helpful. The price of the hotel ($120 per night) seemed fair considering its location. There is secure car parking & a pool in the complex which is clean and neat. The rooms were clean and neat also, flat screen tv, mini fridge, cupboards full of plates, glasses & cutlery. Enough clothes space to hang and fold clothes if needed and balcony with small table & chairs. Bathroom was outdated but still neat and clean.

Wifi available but quite expensive therefore didn't purchase it. Overall great hotel and located is brilliant. Will stay again.

We needed to check in early at 1:00 pm to get ready for a sporting event, on calling the hotel after booking on line, the receptionist said "the room would be ready when it;s ready" this meant that we had to make back up plans in case we could not get into the room, When we did arrive at 2:00pm the room was ready and we were able to make the sporting event. Over all a neat room in a good location. But would we stay here a again? probably not!

Great little place to spend a few days. I would not recommend this place for extended stays, Rooms are small but very comfy. Our room was clean but some furnishings could use a touch up. The view from our room was out over the pool, Strand and up to Castle Hill. The complex is super handy to coffee shops but I would venture into town for a decent meal. Bilo is within 5 minutes walk, as is bakery, chemist, butcher. There is an excellent bbq area and two pools. If you are wanting location this is the place. Staff were friendly.

Room Tip: ask for pool view

Booked in before room was ready so decided to come back later. They cancelled our booking without ringing us despite having our number. Had long delay getting back in. Reception staff had bad attitude. Room was very disappointing. Bathroom has no ventilation whatsoever. Couch terribly stained and dirty. Beds in lounge area roll around on the floor. Room stuffy - we needed air but had no fly screens on windows.
Location great. Thank goodness.
