The hotel was a good place to stay. However being charged twice for the room, once by Wotif and then again by the hotel was not good.

Everything was handy. Nice Restaurant, Bar and Pokies. The town with shops and stores was easy walk with Esplanade for refreshing stroll. Thanks

Room was clean, smelt like smoke upon entry... Toilet bowl rocks and is not secured on one side. Room location, cleanliness and amenities where all I needed. Will stay again if I need accommodation over that way.

Good location for Wynnum central activities. At sometime recently guests in room 1 had been smoking in the room. The room and pillows need deodorizing. Also batteries missing from aircon remote. Advised cleaner of above on morning of departure.

Room was clean, fuss-free check-in and check-out but initially could not find where to plug in the key fob to turn on the lights. It was in the wardrobe. Apart from that, pleasant stay.
