Everything needed for a wonderful family Holiday.

Definitely be staying here again. Really impressed with service and leaving Easter bunnies for the children was a wonderful surprise.

Close to the beach but that's it

Pros: Location, pool
Cons: Air-conditioning, back gate, supplies, Foxtel
Location: Close to Kings Beach and the local tavern
The location was good: it was close to the beach and to a hotel, and the pool was nice. The bad things were: walking up and down 4 flights of stairs, the back gate was very difficult to work and obviously broken, no air-conditioning in the apartment, lack of supplies (soap, toilet paper, shampoo), they said they had Foxtel but there was no Foxtel.

Adele Thank you for your review of your stay at Cheltenham. Re: Needs a lift, we cannot do much about a lift in an existing building. As far as non smoking status, we have this policy within the units like most buildings but cannot stop someone smoking on balcony. We pride ourselves on our cleanliness and overall standard of accommodation and judging by most reviews here and elsewhere, this appears the case. Air Con is an option but not booked. Sorry you did not see the value. Happy travels!!
