“A place to sleep.”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

It is clean and tidy, friendly staff but starting to show signs of age - Bathroom was in need of some TLC!

It has a Spur Restaurant on the property. Very busy and on the evening I arrived, impossible to get a seat. Very Popular and does give a good meal at reasonable prices.

Pity about the hotel Buffet, not very inspiring. However, breakfast were Very Good, except there was only a coffee vending unit, no REAL coffee.

Room Tip: Great location for the airport, good parking and if you're a beach person, its close by.

Like most of the other reviewers, we found little to dislike about this hotel with a nice comfortable room with a great sea view and only a short walk to the boardwalk and sea front.

And as remarked by other reviewers, the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful.

Not the best of weather but a nice weekend break away. The hotel is centrally located and a mere 5 minutes from the airport. Check-in and check-out was fast, efficient and friendly. Walking distance from King's beach, Spur & Nando's. Very close to the board walk.

Room Tip: Sea view is a must.

I have recently spent a week at this hotel, apart from a room underneath the gym which drove me mad (dont book room 706) I found the room to be very spacious and clean with a lovely sea view. Staff are very friendly.
Good value.

Room Tip: DO NOT book room 706.

Stay with my family here. Room tastefully design with 2 double beds. Sleep was great. If anything else bores you, you can enjoy a great view of the ocean. Nice breakfast and walk through to Spur Steak Ranch.

Room Tip: Superior facing the sea.

I stayed in this hotel for 2nights. My check in was not that great. Waiting almost an hour to get my room -even though I came after normal check-in time. However, the room was beautiful with a great view. I had to change my room due to an air-conditioner that was not working. This nearly spoilt my stay, but after I got a new room, it was a lovely stay. Breakfast is quite good and a lot of variety. One issue is that the restaurant is open to public so it is sometimes too full, but ordering from your room tends to be the best option. The hotel has a "free" parking, walking distance to the beach and very close to the airport - I think about 3km or so.
