Close to everything and nice comfy stay

Very much loved our stay, close to the beach and shops. Lots of food options nearby. Comfy couch and beds. Would have preferred thicker pillows but only slight criticism

Sun City Stay

Pros: Very clean and great facilities
Cons: Daily linen (clean towels) and the breakfast restaurant needed to have someone monitoring the food as there was lengthy delays when they run out.
Location: The hotel was a little further out than we thought but with a medium walk you were in the main street with all the restaurants and the beach.
A wonderful hotel with a really comfy bed, and a medium walk to the main street and great access to the public transport.

The Room was bigger than expected. Great ocean view with a balcony to watch the world go by. Parking was ok just took a little bit to find one that wasn't reserved. But parking was free and didn't need to drive anywhere as the beach was a quick stroll and Carville Ave was a bit longer. If walking to beach just make sure you take shoes, some of the footpaths and driveways are Killers on the soles of your feet. Great stay will be bringing the kids back to enjoy the waterslide and the pools.

Great hotel

Great positioning, it's not too far from the buzz of Cavill but far enough that it's a great getaway

Hotel facilities are good but the room we had needs upgrading and a good clean. Staff could have been more helpful.
