Nice location,close to the water and walkway along the beach area, BAR located at the rear of the premises if you like a drink and dont want to drive ,undercover parking when spot available. Fairly quiet if you get the front location however not sure about the rooms at the rear being so close to the Bar .
Staff did not offer an upgrade (paid or completmentry)to a bigger room or room with a balcony, obviousley they were not full. The reception area in the least to say requires a major upgrade the Carpert was dirty and threadbare in most areas. Breakfast pack was available for purchase however would rather go to a local Cafe. The lift was old and the carpet again threadbare and getting to the part of being dangerous. I was situated on the 2nd floor and upon entering noticed that again the Carpet needed to be changed and further $100 of paint and some elbow grease would have bought the room up, I dont want to see paint peeling off the walls pay for a better painter next time. The small kitchen area was ok but the opening door for breakfast went out in the 70s a little upgrade there..
Its now the Digital age and TVs are not that expensive and better if the old ones you have work, had to call the desk and have the one changed which they did with another old TV.
The bedding and headboard needs to be bought into the 21st Century as the nostalgic look of the 70s is gone. The bathroom is ok and good size for the unit.
On checking out ,well I just dropped off the key to a lady who must have worked, but she was not not wearing any type of uniform or clothing that depicted her as an employee.
To the owners, you have to spend money to make money, you have a great location and the rooms are a good size lets not cheapen out, you need to upgrade this property or you will go the way of the Dinasours. I was there for the Whale Festival and have now been looking for a new location for next year. Carpet is not expensive and painting is fairly cheap I am sure there is people out there to do it, charge an extra $5 per night per room and you will get it back 10 fold in the end.
MY RATING 2.5 STAR WITH GREAT ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT.
