Excellent value for money, good sized rooms and very pleasantly decorated, do not be put off by external look of the hotel. Ocean view rooms great! Staff very pleasant and helpful. Easy five minute walk to the pier

Spacious simple room. Bedding not so comfortable but OK for an overnight stay. View from the balcony was lovely overlooking the bay. Chose the hotel due to its location which dis not dissapoint - easy walking distance to everything central.

Hotel was very basic. Electricity didn't work to bedside lights and couldn't be fixed until the next day. Breakfast also very basic, not particularly fresh. Decor not particularly fresh. Painting and repairs would help.

bedding was not what I asked for, as I have two teenage children , sofa beds are not ideal and this one was left us with blood rushing to our heads. The location was great. The internal noise from other guests disappointing. Staff where helpful and polite.

Enjoyed our stay here. Older building but rooms have been refurbished. Service was very good. Only problem we encountered was rooms are not very soundproof. People in room above us were very noisy and sound could be easily heard.

We came here the night before our Coral Adventures cruise left, and essentially just slept in the room and then got up in the morning to leave. It was very clean and the bed comfortable. The only downside was the neighborhood cockatoos were loud in the morning so we couldn't sleep in!
