Well situated on the beach front. Near to local pubs and other night life. Shopping centre is just out the back. Parking seems to be limited though, either on the local streets (free overnight up to 9am) or an option to use the Hotel Valet parking.

I didn’t like the fact that when going to the pool I had to walk around with a towel around myself, a robe would have been more sufficient as there were guest for a wedding there and I felt extremely uncomfortable walking by. The steam room smelled terrible and the seats are broken, A sauna with wooden seating would be better.

The Unit allowed outside noise from the street (glazed door seals not effective) and there was too much corridor noise from other patrons. Air conditioning too slow. No blankets available in the room to substitute for the supplied doona. No full length mirror. Exhaust fan to Bathroom undersized. No privacy from adjoining balcony. No acoustic separation between bathroom and unit.
