“Great Hotel in Excellent Location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Stayed here with 2 mates & the Hotel itself is great, the location cannot be beat. In the heart of everything, the Bondi Beach across the road, resteraunts only metres away if you did not want to eat at the Hotel itself. Staff were friendly & helpful, rooms were clean & very comfortable. For price & location really can't be beat.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

I just stayed here with my family for three days. We took the two bedroom suite. It was adequate. Rooms are simple and clean. The location can't be beat. Beach right across the street, and bus to Bondi junction right across the street. Not too much in the way of service overall, but there's not much to do in the hotel, the bar scene is ok. I have stayed here in the past, and would return again.

The location is fantastic and the rooms clean, even if they are small and dated. The Vietnamese restaurant next door was really great too. The noisy bar problem was easy solved, if you can't beat them, join them. ;)

Great location, friendly staff but the rooms need some TLC they were clean but small and stuffy. The balconies all around the hotel rooms were noisy at times and no sleep until the bar downstairs closed very late. Food looked nice did not dine there, bar was nice in early evening the views were great, right oposite the beach

Room Tip: Maybe at back of hotel away from the bar to escape the noise if this is possible.

The location was very good however the rooms are very dated and in desperate need of a makeover. The bed was the worst i have ever slept on! And the underground parking is a nightmare to figure out!! The hotel is on the noisy side as bar downstairs runs until the early hours of the morning so if your wanting to retire to bed early don't stay here.

Great location opposite bondi beach. Rooms where a little old fashioned but very clean. Staff where friendly and helpfully. I will be back. Cost: room = $110^ a night, taxi to city = $30-$40 one way. To airport = $50 by taxi or a shuttle bus = $45. Great place for friends to go for the weekend.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

Really great location across from the beach. Rooms are reasonably priced but they are pretty tired and basic. Beds are very small (booked a double) and bathrooms are a bit too much like airplane toilets. Would benefit from a refit for sure. Downstairs bar is lively and decent plus the food is good. A touch on the noisy side at night.. even on the 3rd floor. Overall a decent stay for the money, especially considering the location.
