Great spot but tired

Pros: Staff and cleanliness.
Cons: As above needs a little refurbishment.
Location: Location great in the middle of everything
I have been staying at this hotel for years and it is really in a great location but is looking a little tired. all it needs is a little TLC to bring it back to where it used to be. All the staff we dealt with were fantastic and couldn't be more helpful. I will stay there again no problems.

Average hotel

Pros: The food was wonderful. A good locaton,
Cons: Checking in process and foreign speaking receptionists that are struggling with English.
Stayed for 7 nights in twin motel styled room. Clean except for sliding glass doors which were filthy. Thank goodness for double glazing doors which were wonderful to block out noisy main road. The most frustrating thing is booking in. It was a long process . First impressions are everything and when they appear not to know what they are doing it does not instill confidence. Most of the trouble was non speaking receptionists. The same for ordering room service. Our phone never worked at all for our entire stay. I ordered room service on 3 occasions and the food was wonderful. The first time I decided to not pay the delivery fee of $5 but to carry the food up myself. It was very heavy and awkward so the next 2 nights I paid the delivery fee. On the last occasion the waitress who was delivering the meal, dropped one of the plates containing spaghetti bolognaise outside our room! I enjoyed the car valet service which was very efficient although at $15 a day it should be. I was sick of paying for surcharges on using credit cards.

Nice hotel close to trams and beach

Pros: The close procsimitry to transport, beach and park area,
Cons: Updating the rooms could be a start, as well as maybe heating the pool as it was freezing even on a very hot day.
Location: Location was great as well as close to activities
The motel rooms are very tired and need updating, but the price was ok for peak time of the year, it is situated close to bus and tram stops as well as only a short walk to the beach, also close to putt putt golf for children's entertainment. All in all a good area to stay.

Great position

Nothing bad but the resort needs some maintenance very tiired holes In walls scuff marks everywhere through hallways painting throughout. It wouldn’t bother me if we were staying in a hostel but at $285 a night plus $15 to park your car it’s a bit expensive
