I stayed here with my partner and some friends for one night (though my friends had their own rooms). We were happy with our one-bedroom apartment which had a separate bedroom, bathroom, kitchen space with a big fridge (the fridge itself wasn't very cold but ah well), lounge area (awesome settee!), and a balcony. You can tell that this hotel has been refurbed at some point and is a bit basic but I thought it was pretty nice anyway. The pool and spa looked amazing but due purely to the chilly cloudy weather I didn't personally try it out :)
The hotel isn't far from the beach and is close to a petrol station and a massive shopping centre - this was handy when we got midnight munchies.
Though the whole hotel was clearly booked up with we Foo Fighters fans, it was quiet and sleep quality was really good.
My friends found it a bit unusual that guests are asked to take their own rubbish out to the bins located outside the building, I wasn't too bothered and put this rule down to those pesky November schoolies kids :D
Management seemed quite friendly and approachable. Car park was included with the room.
Overall a nice place to spend a night at the coast! Not sure if the option already exists but I reckon it might be nice to have a late check out option for people who are staying one night - even if there was a small cost attached.
