the hotel stopped our room/hotel passes 24 hrs before our booking finished and we didn't find out until after their office was shut. We contacted the emergency number. The manager came around very quickly to let us in (thanks) but did not apologise for the error which they had made!!

Price & deal was very competitive, View is fantastic. However its 3 star hotel at best. Place feels very dated and dark. Decor, furnishings and cleanliness was below expectation, Location is excellent with great brekky in the Black Jasmine. Overall its a viable cheap getaway.

Location was excellent with small children. 3 x playgrounds within short walk, swimming beach across the road and rock pools within walking distance also. Pools were well set up for children and adults.
