Nice hotel construction being done so a little loud at time but thats to be expected we had a lagoon view room which was nice but neighbours loud at night so we got moved to a lagoon spa room which was lovely but the spa only fills up about 10 inches befor you run out of hot water but that didnt really bother up its down on the lagoon side so a lot of up hill walking to get to the top to catch a local bus

Great place to stay.

Pros: Location was good and friendly staff.
Cons: The food in general is just ok at best. Fresh fruit is the only good thing about breakfast. This could be improved by mixing the menu up.
Location: A 10 min walk from town, supermarkets car and bike hire etc. Getting around is easy with the local transport bus service for about $2 au per trip.
Service was great, Breakfast needs a fair bit of an improvement, Happy hour cocktails are fantastic and reception are very helpful with everything.
