Over all the room is nice but not for over $200 a night your paying for view not the room. They also take a $150 safety deposit which does put you out of pocket and it takes days to go back in your account. It's day 3 and my partner is still waiting for the deposit to come back, not... More

What a great place to stay. Location is absolutely perfect and the studio room with ocean views was perfect. Fresh and clean, even includes a washer and dryer. Wifi access was a little slow for the first 1/2 hour which was free and fast when paid for extra. I Would recommend for a great getaway. No car needed everything at... More

Absolute rubish hotel, stayed there for a week, was not advertised that they don't service rooms and there was no indication that they would charge money if the room isn't left in whatever state they want it. They also charged me $20 for a lost room key which as many people would know are lest than 50c fro them to... More

Just stayed here last week visiting my daughter and was happy I'd booked here. Reception was bright and fresh and staff were friendly and helpful. Check in and check out were done within a few seconds. The hallways could do with a little freshen up but once I entered my room on the second floor (ocean view) all was forgotten.... More

It's in a great location, central to just about everything and walking distance to shops, restaurants and park which is great fun for the kids. Pelican feeding, fair and water fun for the kids in the park.. Good value and I'm going back there for a few days break this week.

We selected this hotel from the Internet, based on its excellent location, right on the pedestrian walkway running along the foreshore. We had an ocean view apartment and the view out to the water was beautiful. Given the high prices (nearly $400 for a two bedroom apartment for one night), the rooms are old and tired and the building is... More
