“Very comfortable stay in a great location”
Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here recently to attend a friends birthday. The service from reception was excellent. Parking availability was good. Our room was clean and very comfortable. For a busy weekend we found the hotel to be very quiet. Breakfast was excellent even though the restaurant was chaotic and staff were flat out replenishing food supplies. Checkout was as efficient as the checkin. Location across the road from the beach was perfect. Good value for money. We would definitely stay here again.

Great place to stay, location is awesome, right across from the beach. Rooms are comfortable. Buffet breakfast rates as probably one of the best I have had! Staff very friendly will definitely visit again.

What a great place to stay, the location, food and service was excellent. We had the best weekend. A small problem with the fridge which was fixed within 15 minutes on arrival. Would highly recommend to anyone.

The hotel is getting on a little bit but overall the stay was good. The check-in easy and we'd paid the extra $20 online to get an Ocean View room. The room didn't face directly to the ocean, just to the side. The window was floor to ceiling (but could have done with a window clean). If they'd oriented the room 180 degrees it would have been perfect - the lounge faced the opposite way to the ocean.

The room was quiet (we were in 920, the opposite end of the lifts). The only noise was the air conditioner. The bed was comfortable, on the soft but snuggly side. I'd have liked the option of firm pillows for the second pillows (they were in the cupboard but cheap and thin).

Breakfast buffet standard fare. We had a cocktail in the lounge/bar. Good but a long wait as they only had the one staff person on a Monday evening.

Overall good.

Room Tip: Pay the extra $20 to get the Ocean View room.

Service & location are excellent. Opposite the beach with lovely views. Rooms are comfortable & a good size but could use some soundproofing & modernising along with the rest of the hotel. Our room rate included breakfast which was nice but probably not worth the price they charge - if you don't have a breakfast deal there are a few good coffee shops within a few minutes walk.

Overall a good place to stay & would happily recommend to others.

We went for our 25th wedding anniversary, we found the reception staff welcoming and a bustling but nice foyer area, halls to our room looked tired however on entering our room found it to be spacious & clean, HOWEVER when we walked out on the balcony we just looked at up to 50 other guests on their balconies, there are no privacy screens so you all just look at each other!!!! Very offputting. Needless to say we spent no time on our verandah, disappointing with such a lovely view.The location was brilliant but no where worth the $325 cost of room only. When my husband booked he said it was for our 25th anniversary and he had hoped we may find a voucher for a free wine or coffee but we found nothing.

Room Tip: If you want privacy & no noise from other guests, dont go for a balcony,

Fantastic location, beach across the road, walking/cycle paths, easy walking distance to Win Entertainment centre & Stadium, cafe's and restaurants. Beautiful view from our balcony of NorthBeach and coastline, staff very friendly. Loved our visit, wished we could stay longer!
