We stayed with our friends as part of our tour in one of the supeior rooms which we thought it was nicely refurbished with all the things you need. It was fairly priced, clean and very comfortable. Had dinner on the same night which was delicous and the service was good. View and the sunset was amazing. Breakfast in the...

My family and I dined in the restaurant. We were greeted by your lovely young waitress Jessie and promptly shown to our seats without a reservation. We could tell that they were busy and although Jessie could not take our order, Zachary, your very outgoing and friendly waiter took our order. Upon receiving our main meal, we went to the...

The good? A clean room, newly decorated. The not so good? A very small room. It was booked for us by our travel agent and whilst we now realise that just because it's called "The Beachfront Hotel" it doesn't necessarily mean that you have a view of the beach. However, it wasn't what we expected/hoped for. Our room was described...

Dear Guest, Thank you for staying and taking time to share your feedback with us. I am sorry to hear that we didn't meet your expectations and that the room your travel agent booked disappointed you.

Love the Beachfront this was our 3rd time here. Lovely clean rooms, spacious and beautiful views straight across the road to the Tasman Sea. Comfy bed quiet and easy parking and accessible. The bathroom is very well equipped lovely shower too. Very popular need to book and the restaurant is brilliant for breakfast and dinner or just a drink.

If you want a seashore hotel, this is the one. It is right on the beach of the Tasman Sea. Get a room on the second floor, facing the ocean and open your balcony door at night to listen to the crashing waves when the tide comes in. An ocean facing room with a balcony also gives you a great...

We spent two nights in one of the Beachfront Studio chalets. The decor was very contemporary (in a log cabin), with nice artwork and a kitchenette. There is a shared laundry room on the premises, which was very useful (coin-operated). It was a short walk to the beach area. We had a relaxing time here, walking up and down the...

The apartments are right by the beach which is scattered with "sculptures" made from the bleached driftwood which has been washed up onto the beach.

The rooms are tired and the beds need an upgrade. The room was not really that clean, but okay. We were on the first floor, and there is NO VIEW of the ocean, but straight to the parking lot to walk to the ocean. However, the sound of the ocean is great. The room is VERY hot during the day...

The hotel is an unusual layout so if you arrive by car, getting to the reception area is a bit of a trek through various doors. The staff were nice and our accommodation was fine. One side was floor to ceiling windows of the quite large room led out onto a full length balcony overlooking the shorefront across the road...
