Warm and welcoming staff from the moment we arrived, very helpful too. The room was great, clean, modern and spacious (great black out curtains meant we all got a great nights sleep despite the time difference). Good restaurant attached too, with a nice selection of food to choose from. The marina itself was lovely, clean beach and perfect for walking along for weary travellers and young children. Short distance to a good restaurant with a playground situated outside too. A short walk (20 mins) to Venice Beach although this seems to be something the locals don't do much of (walking that is!). Overall this worked really well for our family travelling to London from New Zealand and would definitely stay again and have already recommended it to our friends.
