Had the one bedroom apartment facing the ocean. Was pleasant room, lots of space. Dining table needs replacing. Curtains in living room and bedroom need a good clean!! Had to pull the bed out from the wall to get to the powerpoint under the fixed bedside table.

Room was great in terms of facilities and cleanliness when we got there. It's located on a relatively busy road and a good 10 minute walk from the main restaurants in the CBD but definitely OK if you are up for a bit of a walk.
