Condition of Room

Pros: Location & Size of unit

Location: Very well located.
The room was well located however they are aged and becoming very tired. Upgrade would be required for me to recommend to family & friends.

Thanks for your feedback. We are constantly working with the owners regarding updating their units however we are not always successful. The location is great and the units are spacious, I agree with you that some updating is required. Cheers Gloria

Unfriendly & rude manager

Accommodation was ok however room was dirty, with mouldy verticals in lounge, shower sliding door falling off and overall, room run down. As for management, we were outside in our courtyard playing a game at 5pm, when management came out and yelled at us, told us to be quiet or next time, we will be kicked out! Never again will I be subjected to such abruptness & rudeness. Maybe advertise if you don’t want people having fun on holidays or don’t rent the apartments out at all if all you want are long term residents in your building!

We love guest to come and have fun but when the noise is such that complaints are that the guest in units close cannot hear their TV well that is loud on an unacceptable level! The rest well if you are that unhappy you will find fault in anything. The units are not 4 or 5 star and we don't market them as such, but they are clean and you were looking for reasonable rates which you received. Families are our core business and we are very aware of their comfort, sorry but we are not party central. Gloria

Very comfortable and close to everything.

We were only there for a long weekend visiting our grandparent that is very unwell. The management kindly allowed us a late check-out at very short notice giving us precious time, which then allowed us time to freshen up for our flight back to Melbourne. Regards Gordon Marshallsea and family.

Nice hotel close to beach & all amenities.

Pros: Proximity to everything
Cons: Everything needs updating but was clean & comfortable
Had a nice relaxing holiday. Traffic noise was a bit off-putting. Apartment was clean, tidy & comfortable but badly in need of updating. Staff were very helpful & pleasant.

Thanks for your feedback, updating is something we are constantly working with the owner to improve regarding the traffic we and other resort managers have approached council to come up with a solution. A work in progress!
