OK , they say location is everything but sometimes the location can bite you on the bum ! This place is definetly for the young uns ! It's only a short 2 minute stroll to the beach and 1 block from Cavill Ave but I found it to be too close !! We had the mis-fortune to have near 24 hour roadworks surrounding the Hotel for the light rail project for the full 5 days which lead to disturbed sleep, not the Hotels fault but for the price we paid you would think a discount could of been offered ?? The rooms are old & dated but I found them clean and the staff , cleaners , front counter, bar, security etc all were pretty good. They do their best with an old product showing her age ! We tried the breakfast once only , terrible, so ate elsewhere !! The noise from the street at 5am as other guests returned and bypassers loudly bid their farewells was common but at least I caught up with a nap on the beach. The place is shared with a backpacker section and really for the price charged falls well short. The under 25 crowd would love it but not for me or a family stay I'm afraid.I would strongly suggest another venue !!!
