3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Booked a studio room. The plus is its small kitchen. The down side is tv in very awkward position to view. Tiny bathroom and the balcony overlooks back yards that resemble dumps. Very dark room. It was clean but at $120 a night I expect better. The drunks in the pool did not help either. Not recommended

More of a hotel than a motel, the entry through the underground parking is not exactly prepossessing, particularly if you don't like lifts(me) and take the bare stone stairs. Reception was extremely friendly and welcoming, access easy and the sea facing room, wow, exactly what I needed after a weeks touring the bush and tablelands. Huge, spotlessly clean room, comfortable... More

My partner and I recently spent 10 glorious days at the Water's Edge. It's close proximity to eateries, supermarket and shops is just ideal. Our room was lovely and clean and had the added bonus of being close to the communal sun deck overlooking The Strand. A great place to kick back and relax. A big thank you to Sue... More

This accommodation is in the perfect position on The Strand, close to restaurants and beach. It is perfectly clean, honestly! It has the most comfortable bed and pillows. Down side is it has traffic noise which took some getting used to but it is silent between 10 and 7. I loved getting up each morning and walking The Strand. Would... More
