location to Glenelg was great, very close to the beach and eateries. Staff were excellent. All facilities were exceptional, complimentary breakfast ( continental ) more than adequate for us. Would stay there again.

Good location. Easy parking. Welcoming staff. The Bed was comfortable, The room appeared clean and tidy, however the bed linen didn’t smell fresh., The pillows smelt like old men’s underarms! There was not enough bed linen to keep warm & there was no electric blanket. Reception provided one upon request.

Thank you for your feedback. After your request for an electric blanket housekeeping found there was an electric blanket on the bed however the controls were not showing and it was not plugged into the power point. We are unsure why the bed linen did not smell fresh. Sorry you were cold. Sorry you were unable to locate the air conditioning switch until the morning after you checked in. Instructions on use of air conditioner are written in the compendium. Kind regards John, Cathy & Team
