Walking distance to the main street for restaurants and bars. Amenities such as Coles are nearby too. Rooms are a little old but clean and comfortable for a night rest. Comes with a kitchen too which came in handy.

Spa Studio. Very small room. The sofa in the room was old and faded and had an odour to it we didn't even want to sit on it and the bedspread had stains on it. Dirt behind the toilet and bathroom doors. I think the rooms need to be aired out more often as they just smelled stale. Could do...

Good location, just slightly off the Main Street. A little too small. Breakfast was pre packed n not hot breakfast as I expected. But for the price I paid I can't ask for more than what was provided. Good for short term stay especially during GP season.

Strategically located. 5 mins walk to the shops and esplanade. 10~15mins drive to Penguin Parade/Nobbies. Well equipped apartment for 2 adults and 2 children. Comes with a well equipped kitchen and free continental breakfast. Spent 3 days 2 nights without any single complaints. This place is quiet and tranquil. Will definitely recommend to my friends.

The trick is to turn it on as soon as you arrive.The rooms are very spacious and exceptionally clean from the bathroom to all the kitchen...
