QV3 is a nice easy going place to stay when on Christmas Island. Down near Settlement a main road (if you can call it a main road) on the way to Lily & Ethel Beaches. Walking distance to the Golden Bosun pub which sells excellent food with a view that you'd never get sick of

I had a ground floor unit that looked out onto the front patio and then across the road. Good size bed, self contained and ensuite. Free wifi. The beaches are fine for swimming - especially down at the town jetty. Good snorkelling.

All rooms have a cosy feel, equipped with TV, ensuite, towels, drawers, fridge/freezer and some milk for cups of tea and coffee. The service is fantastic - both cleaning and admin staff.
