Rooms were clean and tidy, and at a reasonable rate. Walking distance to the shops, restaurants, market etc.Evening meal had very little choice. And noise of very large loud family in the pool below was a bit annoying.

Very handy to shops and attractions. Comfortable and clean room. Reasonably priced, I booked for two nights. I stayed on my own and joined family on Sunday morning for Mothers Day walk. Several run/walk shirts around the hotel complex. Several families had the same idea.

This was situated in a lovely position with great ocean views, but the accommodation was very basic with plastic veneer style fitted furniture. However, the rooms were clean and the staff friendly.The dining room felt like a school canteen,with long tables that were far too overcrowded, and being required to go up in table groups to queue for food. However,... More

Thank you for your feedback.

To allow everyone to dine in restaurant we have our table sizes 8 - 10 people. We apologise if you... More

The pool area is fabulous.We didn't have any meals there but we were told that they were very good. We patronised a local cafe that served up good meals at a reasonable cost. The hotel... More

The hotel was taken over by Millennium Corp since October 2015. It provide clean bathroom and nice swimming pool. The bed is a little bit dated and most of the room has no view! Breakfast is served at 6:45am while most of the tour is started by 7am. There is no safety box in room.
