It was small. No exhaust fan in bathroom. Noisy! No access to the spa area. Only provided with 6 complementary coffee for 3 night stay, you had to pay if you require more. No lift or ramp! Had to carry or drag suitcase up/down stairs. Bats in the carport area. Staff are friendly at greeting!

Situated close to the beach and shops. Comfortable rooms but no lift made it harder to access upstairs rooms with heavy cases

Room was large and bed very comfy. Shower screen was broken so was difficult to close. Price was $20 cheaper than first quoted, which was lovely. Overall room was good value for the price and we would stay again. Unfortunately the restaurant meals were not so great. There was a long wait, which they warned us about, so we expected however the restaurant was not nearly a third full, so can’t imagine how they would cope on a very busy night. We ordered two fish meals, one battered, one crumbed. Both meals came out battered, raw in the middle and soggy/chewy. The accompanying vegetables weren’t great either. My corn had a rotten section and the mash just didn’t taste right. Greens were superb. Crunchy the way I like them. We informed staff, who appreciated the feedback but that was it. We ended up going down town to the foodworks to top up on snacks. After a long day at work and a less than average meal, I really appreciated the comfy bed and air conditioning.
