We are a family of 5. Teenage kids- 12,14, 16. This is a motel room not an apartment. The family unit is small but newly renovated. Main bed in the kitchen/family area and 3 x singles in a separate bedroom. You could do a few nights here as it is central to everything! Opposite Main Beach. Backs onto a laneway... More

Great central spot. Rooms are pretty nice inside and look to have been done up recently. Far from 5 star but great value and close to everything. Pub is close and can be a bit loud but thats expected with such a central venue

We were in room 10. Top level and right next to construction site. Being on the top level certainly presented some challenges with a newborn, strollers, bags etc but we are a young, fit couple and managed it fine but certainly wouldn't recommend for everybody. Construction may be a problem for some light sleepers out there as it starts right... More

One block away is the heart of the town. Steps away from a great waterfront walk. We arrived just as it got dark and the town was VERY busy and parking would have been difficult to find. It was great to have our own car parking.

Booked for 6 nights, could only stay 1 due to horrendous noise from multi storey building site directly behind. Started at 5:30am, trucks, jack hammers, banging etc. Won't be completed until at least xmas 2016. Deceptive operators, "Bookings" ratings and property images. To add insult to injury they re rented my room and kept my money for the full 6... More

Perfect location on the beach and seriously right next door to loads of cafés, the beach, restaurants and the esplanade. The room has a kitchenette which was handy. Nice décor and a nice large king size bed. No outlook as it is just the walkway at the door like the old fashioned motel style but that didn't bother us as... More

IT is an excellent location if you like to walk to shops, restaurants, beach. The rooms are well presented and spacious. There is a construction site next door which affected us as we stayed a sunday night, so the workmen and machines woke us at 6am monday morning.
