This place is great. It is very clean and tidy and for what you pay, makes it a very good deal. Great location across from the QLD Royal Yacht Squadron.

Only stayed overnight but great all round experience. Good check-in, lift to room, clean and tidy and lovely outlook to bay from balcony. Plenty of parking outside with the yacht club across the roadway. Special mention to staff/housekeeping who posted 2sets of iPhone/pad chargers 'and' cords back to me, that were left in room after stay. Thank you.
