Dear Christopher, thanks for your nice comment regarding your stay. We are looking forward to welcoming you again.

Great location! So close to the beach, shops and restaurants. Also very competitively priced - I paid just under $600 for 8 nights, which is the main reason I booked with this hotel. Sure, the rooms are a little dated but remember that you are booking a budget hotel and won't even be spending that much time in your room anyway. Another plus is having a bath tub and a washing machine within the room, as well as FREE access to over 1000 movies on the TV. There is free internet, but the connection is shaky at best but I bought my own USB modem with me so that was no big issue. The staff were also very friendly and it's also comforting to have a security guard on the premises after hours when the reception closes. All in all, I had a great stay and I highly recommend this hotel.

The air vents in bathroom and pool area filthy and the glass doors need a clean. The pools needed a clean too. Food and cigarette butts in pool and on the pavement sand in the pool and rubbish at the bottom of the pool and hair floating in the pool which should be cleaned before the pool opens for guests not during their swimming time. At 8-8.30. A mop that works for the bathroom.

Very close to centre. Room smell was horrific! Bed was hard as a rock! Asked hotel to please fix smell and bed, they added mattress topper which made the bed marginally better but smell was unchanged, we resorted to buying candles and plug in power point scented room deodoriser. To top it off, the day we were due to leave, the next room had their smoke alarm going off at 4am and we had to contact security to get it turned off (occupants were sleeping with ear plugs so did not hear it) I have concerns that as the smoke alarms are not interconnected, or at least connected to some external security/fire system, if there was an actual fire, it may have resulted in a tragedy

Worst Hotel on the GC. Dirty, smelly and there was a cockroach in the bathroom. Bathroom wasn’t cleaned properly, left over toothpaste and hair in the shower from the last guests. King bed was just two singles pushed together which made it so uncomfortable. $200 deposit required upon check in not just a credit card details for a deposit. Then when we checked out we were asked to take our rubbish out of the room with us. (Which I refused). The photos are very misleading. Don’t stay here people.

Room was delayed for 2.5 hours at arrival. Room was stiii dirty from previous occupants. Sand all over floor like it had not been swept, hair products still in shower. Bed was only queen size not king, Bed was that low it was virtually a matress on the floor. Hot water comes and goes in the shower. Hand basin drain blocked. Only 1 chair to sit on out on the balcony for a double room. Very ordinary pink plastic chair that looked like it would break if sat on. Hair dryer blew up and was replaced quickly. Location was good
